PELVIC ADHESIONS

Adhesions are bands of scar tissues occurring between organs within the abdomen and pelvis. they're shaped during healing from pelvic surgery, Caesarean sections, infection or endometriosis.

Although the formation of scar tissue is a normal part of the healing method, adhesions will become problematic because they cause components of the body that don't seem to be commonly connected to stick to each other.

Adhesions will impair the normal movement of the pelvic organs and cause pelvic pain.

When adhesions block the ends of the fallopian tubes, they cause sterility.


When adhesions cause pain or other health issues, they will be removed by surgery allowing structures to move more freely. within the past, this was done using open abdominal surgery, however these days it can be done using laparoscopic surgery as a result of the reduced trauma to the body.

Compared to open surgery, laparoscopic surgery itself reduced the speed of adhesions as less tissue is directly handled. The high-definition camera will produce enlarged vision, permitting better control of hemorrhage and enhancing precision of the surgery. other advantages of laparoscopic surgery include:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay and earlier return to normal activities

Once the adhesions are removed, varied adhesion barriers can be placed within the pelvis to prevent adhesions reforming.
