A prospective randomized experimental study to investigate the peritoneal adhesion formation after waterjet injection and argon plasma coagulation (HybridAPC) in a rat model

A prospective randomized experimental study to investigate the peritoneal adhesion formation... Background This prospective, randomized, controlled, single-blinded study investigates the peritoneal adhesion formation of HybridAPC (waterjet elevation of the peritoneum with subsequent argon plasma coagulation) versus only waterjet (eleva- tion with the same instrument, but without subsequent argon plasma coagulation) in a rat model (24 female Wistar rats). Materials and methods Bilateral lesions were created on the abdominal wall with HybridAPC on one sidewall and waterjet elevation on the other sidewall of the peritoneum in a standard fashion. After 10 days, the rats were euthanized to evaluate the peritoneal trauma sites. Main outcome measure(s) Adhesion incidence, quantity, and quality were scored 10 days postoperatively and studied histopathologically. Result(s) Incidence of adhesion formation was 2.3% for HybridAPC; no adhesions occurred for peritoneal elevation with saline (p = 1.00). Histologic evaluation revealed no acute inflammation in both groups. An overall moderate degree of granulation tissue formation and myonecrosis was observed in the HybridAPC group, whereas no chronic inflammation and myonecrosis occurred after elevation without thermal ablation (p < 0.0001). Conclusion(s) This study investigates the effect of waterjet elevation of the peritoneum with and without subsequent thermal ablation on adhesion formation in a rat model for the first time. Peritoneal waterjet elevation with saline does not provide any risk http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics Springer Journals

Background This prospective, randomized, controlled, single-blinded study investigates the peritoneal adhesion formation of HybridAPC (waterjet elevation of the peritoneum with subsequent argon plasma coagulation) versus only waterjet (eleva- tion with the same instrument, but without subsequent argon plasma coagulation) in a rat model (24 female Wistar rats). Materials and methods Bilateral lesions were created on the abdominal wall with HybridAPC on one sidewall and waterjet elevation on the other sidewall of the peritoneum in a standard fashion. After 10 days, the rats were euthanized to evaluate the peritoneal trauma sites. Main outcome measure(s) Adhesion incidence, quantity, and quality were scored 10 days postoperatively and studied histopathologically. Result(s) Incidence of adhesion formation was 2.3% for HybridAPC; no adhesions occurred for peritoneal elevation with saline (p = 1.00). Histologic evaluation revealed no acute inflammation in both groups. An overall moderate degree of granulation tissue formation and myonecrosis was observed in the HybridAPC group, whereas no chronic inflammation and myonecrosis occurred after elevation without thermal ablation (p < 0.0001). Conclusion(s) This study investigates the effect of waterjet elevation of the peritoneum with and without subsequent thermal ablation on adhesion formation in a rat model for the first time.
