Abstract

Trimetazidine (TMZ) reduces intracellular acidosis and inhibits oxygen-derived free radicals and neutrophile infiltration in ischemia and hypoxia, which are the primary steps of adhesion formation. Our aim is to study the anti-adhesion potential of trimetazidine in a rat uterine horn model.
