Abstract

lozenge Objective: The various methods of measuring peritonea[ thickness in experimental studies in rats have yielded conflicting results. Also, no standard method exists to assess histologic findings in peritoneal morphology. We therefore undertook the present study to create a reproducible and standard method for assessing rat peritoneal histology in experimental studies.
