AbstractThe aim of the study was to investigate and evaluate the colotomy closure via laparoscopic device using clips and Connell mattress suture technique. Sixteen adult female healthy local breed goats were used. They were divided randomly into two equal groups, Connell suture technique and clips mattress groups. The operations were done under the effect of general anesthesia using IM injection of xylazine 2% (0.05 mg/kg BW) and ketamine 5% (3mg/ kg BW) mixture. Under aseptic technique colotomy were done laparoscopically, the colotomy incision was closed by connell suture pattern in connell's group using 2/0 polygalactin 910 suture material, and by clips technique in clips group using 10 Medium- Large titanium legating clips. Each group was divided into two equal subgroups depended on follow up of histopathological examination at a periods of 7 and 21 days post- surgery. The results of clinical examination revealed that the activity and appetite of animals were return early to the normal level, also the physical findings returned to the normal level value with a short time after operation in both groups. The histopathological findings of two groups appeared that there was an inflammatory phase at a period of 7 days post operation, but the granulation tissue and collagen fiber formation was more prominent in connell's group compared with clips group, while at the 21 days post operation in both groups revealed that a granulation tissue in the incision site which covered by epithelial layer with thick fibrous connective tissue and presence of myofibroblast at the incision site. This indicated that the wound was in a mature phase which was clear in connell's group than in the clips group..
