Abstract

Microsurgery has been shown to reduce the risk of adhesion formation when compared to conventional surgery in cases of benign ovarian pathology. However, the microsurgeons have contrasting opinions concerning the use of absorbable versus non-casebable suture materials. In the present study we compared nylon versus vicryl sutures for ovarian surgery using the rabbit as an experimental model. No differences were found in terms not only of post-operative adhesions but also in terms of post-operative reproductive outcome for the sutures analyzed.
