A histologic evaluation of peritoneal injury and repair: implications for adhesion formation.


A study of peritoneal healing after specific types of peritoneal injury was conducted in rabbits. Histologic specimens were examined at four, eight, 12, 24, and 48 hours, and at five, seven, and 14 days postperitoneal injury. Comparison of types of injury and attempts at peritoneal repair revealed differences in healing mechanisms. Histologic evidence of rapid reperitonealization was associated with those types of repair that involved minimal tissue necrosis and absence of foreign body reaction.
