Effects of polypropylene and polyglactin 910 on enterotomy wound healing were investigated. Sixteen adult W istar albino rats (155.44±30.4 g) w ere randomized into two study groups, A with polypropylene (n = 8) and B with polyglactin 910 (n = 8) following 1 cm mid-jejunal enterotomy incisions performed under ketamine/xylazine anaesthesia.
