Abstract

Adhesion formation was assessed after inducing peritoneal injury with absorbable staples, absorbable suture, surgical excision or thermal injury. In addition, adhesion formation was assessed in the presence of Hyskon. Absorbable staples were associated with increased adhesion formation when compared to the other methods of injury. Hyskon appears to significantly reduce the formation of peritoneal adhesions at sites of peritoneal suturing, excision, and thermal injury, but did not reduce adhesion formation in the area of stapling.
