Prevention of adhesion formation in a laparoscopic mouse model should combine local treatment with peritoneal cavity conditioning.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Adhesion formation results from a series of local events at the trauma site. This process can be enhanced by factors derived from the peritoneal cavity such as mesothelial cell hypoxia (pneumoperitoneum with pure CO(2)), reactive oxygen species (pneumoperitoneum with more than 4% oxygen), desiccation and mesothelial trauma produced through… (More)
