AKINRINMADE, J. F  and  LAWAL, A. O. Gross and Histologic Evaluation of Abdominal Adhesions Associated with Chromic Catgut and Polypropylene Sutured Enteropexies in Dog. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.4, pp.1221-1225. ISSN 0717-9502.

The gross and histologic patterns of abdominal adhesions formed by the use of chromic catgut and polypropylene suture materials were evaluated in dogs. Gross and histologic examinations did not reveal significant difference (p>0.05) in the degree of adhesions observed at enteropexy sites in both suture materials. The use of polypropylene with superior suture qualities should be considered instead of chromic catgut for procedures in which adhesion is desired in the dog.

Keywords : Adhesion; Chromic catgut; Polypropylene; Eneropexy.
