Abstract: We aimed to investigate the effect of allograft amniotic membrane utilization to prevent the post-operative adhesion formation.
Background: In 24 pregnant inbreed Wistar-Albino rats, pregnancy was terminated by forming bilateral uterine horn defect via cesarean section at 20th gestational day. Rats were assigned in three groups randomly.
Methods: In the first group, abdomen closure was achieved without administration of any intra-peritoneal material following standard surgical intervention. In the second group Seprafilm was used to cover the defect at anterior horn of uterus; whereas amniotic membrane of the rat itself was used in the third group. After 3 weeks, all rats were sacrificed and re-laparotomy was performed to determine adhesions scores.
Results: No significant difference was found in adhesion scores between the group 1 and group 3 and also between group 2 and group 3, supporting the previous findings in the literature.
Conclusion: We observed that direct application of allograft amniotic membrane, which is an adhesion barrier used after cesarean section, to injured surface had no effect in the prevention of adhesions (Tab. 3, Fig. 5, Ref. 28).
