Abstract

Dura can greatly facilitate the closure of abdominal wall defects. However, a main disadvantage of its use are the adhesions which develop between omentum, bowel and dura and may lead to bowel obstructions. In this study various groups of rats had either the anterior wall replaced by untreated dura or by dura covered with fibrin glue prior to implantation. Adhesions were found in 75% of sham operated rats, 100% after untreated dura implantation and 50% after the implantation of fibrin glue treated dura.
