Purpose: Although whole bowel irrigation (WBI) is a widely used method of bowel preparation in daily surgical practice, almost nothing is known about the histopathologic alterations caused by WBI and whether these differences have any detrimental effect on the outcome of gastrointestinal surgical procedures. Therefore, an experimental study has been conducted to evaluate and compare the effects of WBI with various solutions on the histology of gastrointestinal tract.
