From: N2O strongly prevents adhesion formation and postoperative pain in open surgery through a drug-like effect

Fig. 4

The additional effect of 4% of O2 on adhesion formation when 10% of N2O is used was investigated during laparoscopic and open surgery using humidified CO2. Adhesion formation was comparable between laparoscopic and open surgery. The additive effect of 4% of O2 was marginal (p < 0.01). Proportions of adhesions are given (mean and SD) Corona R et al, Gynecol Surg, 2017 + ref
