The present study was conducted to evaluate the anti-adhesive properties of honey in preventing postoperative intraperitoneal adhesions in rabbits. Twelve healthy rabbits of either sex were randomly divided into two groups (Group C and T), comprising of 6 rabbits in each. Laparotomy was performed under anaesthesia in all the rabbits and scarification of caecum and ileum was performed. Honey was applied on the scarified surface in group T and no treatment was provided in group C. Evaluation for intraperitoneal adhesions carried out 10th and 21st post-operative day by reopening the abdomen revealed adhesion formation in four rabbits in group C compares to two in group T.
