Abstract

Pericardial adhesions pose a major problem during reoperative cardiac surgical procedures. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of intrapericardial dextran 70 on the formation of pericardial adhesions in an animal model. The data obtained revealed that intrapericardial dextran 70 reduced the incidence of experimental pericardial adhesions.
