Propolis Accelerated Healing Following Colon Surgery

Ultrastructural View of Colon Anastomosis Under Propolis Effect By Transmission Electron Microscopy
World J Gastroenterol, 2008 August;14(30):4763-4770

AIM: To evaluate the effect of propolis administration on the healing of colon anastomosis with light and transmission electron microscopes...

RESULTS: The colonic bursting pressures of the propolis group were statistically significantly better than the control group. Ultrastructural histopathological analysis of the colon anastomosis revealed that propolis accelerated the phases of the healing process and stimulated mature granulation tissue formation and collagen synthesis of fibroblasts.

CONCLUSION: Bursting pressure measurements and ultra structural histopathological evaluation showed that administration of propolis accelerated the healing of colon anastomosis following surgical excision.
