The formation of intra-abdominal adhesions was studied in animal experiments. In dogs, the peritoneal lining was eliminated on the left side of the abdominal wall, while ischaemia was elicited contralaterally by suturing the main vessels. Two to seven weeks later no omental adhesion could be found on the abdominal wall deprived of peritoneum, while it developed in 11 of the 13 operated animals in the ischaemic area.
