This study was carried out to compare the efficacy of carboxymethyl chitosan fabric (CMCF) with that of the combination of low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) and CMCF for the prevention of postoperative adhesions in the rat. Adhesions were induced by suturing both the ileal serosa and peritoneum scraped until petechial bleeding occurred. CMCF were sutured between two surfaces, and LMWH were instilled intraperitoneally immediately before closure of the peritoneomuscular layer. The adhesions were blindly assessed 2 weeks later by using a tensiometer. The mean tensile strength(Newton) of formed adhesions was $2.59{pm}0.85$ in control group, $2.10{pm}0.75$ in the CMCF group and $1.53{pm}0.44$ in the CMCF+LMWH group. The most favorable prevention against adhesion was achieved in the CMCF+LMWH group. Therefore, we could conclude that CMCF+LMWH were effective in prevention against postoperative adhesion in the rat.
