Abstract: Postoperative adhesions are a clinical problem. They can cause female infertility, intestinal obstruction, chronic pelvic pain, and difficulties at the time of reoperation. A variety of approaches described to prevent adhesions have shown variable and inconsistent results. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate most known substances in a laparoscopic mouse model to obtain quantitative and comprehensive information on adhesion prevention. Specifically, this first study aimed to investigate the effects of reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavengers, antiinflammatory agents, and a calcium-channel blocker on pneumoperitoneum-enhanced adhesions.
