Abstract

In previous studies, changes in the surface of the peritoneum during laparoscopic surgery are well defined. Nevertheless, almost all of these studies were performed on rodents via scanning electron microscopy. In the present study, structural alterations of the mesothelial cells of peritoneum were examined during laparoscopic cholecystectomy using transmission electron microscopy.
