Adhesions are bands or strands of scar tissue that may be formed between organs following an injury or a surgery (abdominal and pelvic) or about of intra-abdominal infection (pelvic inflammatory disease, diverticulitis). These are considered to be inevitable part of healing process of the body.
Symptoms of Adhesions
Although most of the adhesions are asymptomatic but some may show symptoms like:
Laparoscopy is the best suitable procedure to confirm the presence and hence removal of adhesions. The procedure requires only small incisions in the abdominal cavity to insert laparoscope that is attached to a monitor outside the patient body. The surgeon views the anatomy of abdominal cavity on the monitor and if any adhesions are found, they are divided and removed using laparoscopic instruments. This is called laparoscopic adhesiolysis.
