Peritoneal closure--to close or not to close

, : Peritoneal closure--to close or not to close. Human Reproduction 16(8): 1548-1552

Peritoneal closure is a controversial issue among obstetricians and gynaecologists. This article reappraises the issue of peritoneal closure. We conducted a thorough literature search using Medline, Pubmed and Embase as well as a hand-search for all references quoted in the relevant papers. The routine non-closure of the peritoneum reduces operation time by an average of 6 min. Most studies showed no difference in the other outcome measures including infection/febrile episodes, analgesic/anaesthetics requirement, bowel function restoration, post-operative stay and adhesion formation. There are insufficient data concerning adhesion formation. In conclusion, apart from a slightly shorter operation time associated with non-closure of the peritoneum, many studies showed no difference in short-term morbidity in the closure and the non-closure group. More studies are needed to examine the long-term morbidity associated with the closure or the non-closure of the peritoneum.
