Peritendinous adhesion is an important cause of poor functional outcome after flexor tendon repair. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of a single intraoperative application of extractum cepae, an extract of dietary onion, on the peritendinous adhesion, using a rabbit model of flexor tendon injury.
