The effect of an experimentally induced intestinal perforation was studied in chick embryos. In 5 different groups of embryos a perforation was induced at 5 different developmental stages, while an equal number of sham operations was carried out for each stage. The results demonstrate that the effect of an intestinal perforation is determined by the developmental stage at which this perforation occurs. There was an inverse relationship between the developmental stage at which the perforation was induced and the remaining traces of the perforation site at the end of incubation. A perforation induced at an earlier developmental stage was more likely to lead to intestinal atresia coupled with only microscopic signs of meconium peritonitis. The severity of the adhesions increased concurrently with the developmental stage.
