Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In view of the role of the calcium ion in the inflammatory process, the effect of Diltiazem — a calcium antagonist—on the formation of intraperitoneal adhesions was studied in rats after induced trauma to the uterine serosa. It was found that intraperitoneal application of diltiazem inhibited adhesion formation to some extent, whereas intramuscularly administered Diltiazem did not. A dual effect of calcium antagonists on the formation of adhesions is suggested. 1989 Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand
