Surgical Adhesions

What are Surgical Adhesions?

Surgical adhesions are bands of scar-like tissue that form between two surfaces inside the body. Inflammation from infection, surgery, or trauma can cause tissues to bond to other tissues or organs. 

Men and women undergoing abdominal and pelvic surgery are most likely going to have surgical adhesions.  In fact, approximately 70% to 90% of all patients will develop surgical adhesions after undergoing non-gynecologic abdominal surgery.  And for women undergoing gynecologic surgery, surveys and medical information indicates as many as 100% will develop surgical adhesions post-op.  Surgical adhesions can prevent, or make it very difficult for women trying to conceive or become pregnant.  Surgical adhesions have been associated with other medical conditions including;  abnormalities of bowel function, pelvic pain and small bowel obstruction.

Pelvic adhesions are the cause of many gynecological problems including significant pain, infertility and conception. Pelvic adhesions are irritations of a woman's pelvic organs as a result of a "pelvic inflammatory event" or from trauma to the area such as in the case of pelvic or gynecological surgery.

Examples of a pelvic inflammatory event include; fallopian tube infections that might occur from endometriosis, removal of an ovarian cyst, sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, post surgery infections, and even appendicitis and appendectomies. 

The surgical procedure for removing
surgical adhesions is known as "adhesiolysis." 

Surgical adhesions removed through adhesiolysis surgery can be a costly medical problem. According to a study, adhesiolysis (the surgery that removes pelvic adhesions) was responsible for about  450,000 adhesiolysis surgeries and hospitalizations involving the female reproductive system and digestive tract occurred in 1993 alone and accounted for over $2 billion in hospitalization and surgeon expenditures.
