          Abstract

          Seprafilm is an ideal synthetic adhesion barrier, but its insertion into the abdomen in laparoscopic surgery is difficult because of its stiff and brittle nature. We tested the usefulness of a novel technique of moistening Seprafilm before use to increase its flexibility before insertion through a trocar during laparoscopic surgery.
