Comparison of Talc Powder, Starch and Sodium Bicarbonate to Postsurgical Adhesion Formation in Rat Model

Hamid Zeinalynejad and Mohammad Arash Ramezani

Abstract:
To find out Sodium bicarbonate comparatively with Talc and Starch in intraperitonealy adhesion formation an experimental study on rat model was designed. Forty eight female rats were selected divided randomly into four groups. After a laparotomy, in the first group, 0.7 mg Talc powder (sterilized with ethyl oxide) plus 3 cc normal saline; in the second group, 0.7 mg Sodium bicarbonate (sterilized with ethyl oxide) plus 3 cc normal saline; in the third group, 0.7 mg starches powder (sterilized with ethyl oxide) plus 3 cc normal saline and in the forth group (controlling group), 3 cc normal saline entered. Four weeks following surgery, adhesion formation was evaluated by modified Swolin scoring system. There was statistical significant difference between groups in adhesion grade. Talc group had the highest grade of adhesion (P<0.001) and bicarbonate was equal to control group. Multivariable analysis determined statistical significant difference between groups in adhesion parameters (P<0.0001). Present findings suggested Sodium bicarbonate gave at least adhesion. Despite of it is inexpensive and suitable substance for dusting glove powder but needs more study about it.
