Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of Simotang oral liquid and glycerin enema on the patients' bowel sound (BS) restoration and anal exhaust after abdominal gynecological operation. METHOD: Ninety patients with benign tumor who had undergone gynecological operation were randomly divided into the Simotang group, treated after operation with Simotang oral liquid; the enema group, treated with glycerin enema, and the control group, non-treated. The restoration time of BS and anal exhaust were observed. RESULTS: Compared with the control group, the restoration time of BS and anus exhaust were both significantly shorter in the Simotang group and the enema group, showing statistical significance (P < 0.05); but the difference between the two treated groups was insignificant (P > 0.05). CONCLUSION: Simotang oral liquid and glycerine enema both could benefit the restoration of anal exhaust and BS after abdominal operation.
