ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND:

Chitosan and sodium hyaluronate are two kinds of anti-adhesion materials commonly used, but there are relatively few reports on their anti-adhesion effects in obstetrics patients.

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the anti-adhesion effects of chitosan and sodium hyaluronate in obstetric patients.

METHODS:

Totaly 180 cesarean section patients, aged 23-39 years, were equaly divided into control group, chitosan group and sodium hyaluronate group according to treatment methods. Patients in the control group were given the routine cesarean section; patients in the chitosan and sodium hyaluronate group were respectively given local smearing of chitosan and hyaluronate sodium. At 1 day after operation, the levels of serum interleukin-6, interleukin-10, tumor necrosis factor-α and C-reactive protein were determined in the three groups. Then, the patients were folowed up for 1 month to observe the occurrence of postoperative adhesion and complications. RESULTS AND

CONCLUSION:

The incidence rate of postoperative adhesions was lower in the chitosan and sodium hyaluronate groups than the control group (P < 0.05). The levels of serum interleukin-6, interleukin-10, tumor necrosis factor-α and C-reactive protein were also lower in the chitosan and sodium hyaluronate groups than the control group (P < 0.05). In addition, the incidence rates of postoperative infection, bleeding and pain were lower in the chitosan and sodium hyaluronate groups than the control group (P < 0.05). However, there was no difference between the chitosan and sodium hyaluronate groups. These findings indicate that the chitosan and sodium hyaluronate are both effective against postoperative adhesions in cesarean section patients, and reduce the incidence of complications.
