STUDY OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of peritoneal exposure to carbon dioxide (CO2) on peritoneal microcirculation and free radical scavenger (FRS) metabolism, and its role in potential adhesion formation after operative laparoscopy. DESIGN Randomized, controlled study (Canadian Task Force classification I). SETTING University-affiliated hospital. PATIENTS Twenty-eight women undergoing operative laparoscopy for adnexal masses. INTERVENTION For each patient, a 1 x 1-cm sidewall… CONTINUE READING
