The authors studied the in vitro permeability of different fragments of the rabbit's peritoneum to urea, inulin, horseradish peroxidase, and ferritin. Parietal peritoneum had a lower permeability to middle and large molecules than visceral peritoneum. In addition the local anesthetic, bupivacaine had a different effect on the mesothelial permeability of visceral peritoneum than on that of parietal peritoneum.
