Formation of intra-abdominal adhesions is a common consequence of abdomino-pelvic surgery, radiation therapy, and inflammatory processes. In a small but clinically significant proportion of patients, adhesive disease may develop, wherein adhesions lead to a variety of chronic symptoms such as abdominal distension, pain, nausea, and abnormal bowel movement pattern which can be daily Cited by: During any intra-abdominal operation, if the condition of the patient permits, we make a systematic investigation of all organs, because we believe very strongly in the theory that disease of one abdominal organ deleteriously affects the function of others, and because in many cases it is difficult to adjudicate precisely cause and by: 3. Intra-abdominal adhesions following surgery represent a major unsolved problem ().They occur after 50% to % of all surgical interventions in the abdomen and can complicate the work of the surgeon considerably ().Dembrowski published the first data on induction of adhesions in an animal model in (), and the intervening years have seen extensive studies in vitro and in vivo. Detection of intra-abdominal adhesions is based on indirect signs or abnormal visceral slide. CT. Abdominal adhesions are rarely visible on CT, however, CT has proven to be a valuable diagnostic modality in the detection of adhesion-related complications, such as bowel obstruction or bowel ischemia. In the absence of concomitant diseases, an.
Abdominal adhesions cause female infertility by preventing fertilized eggs from reaching the uterus, where fetal development takes place. Adhesions can kink, twist, or pull out of place the fallopian tubes, which carry eggs from the ovaries—where eggs are stored and released—to the uterus. Functional GI Disorders. Motility Disorders. Abdominal adhesions that do not cause symptoms generally do not require treatment. Surgery is the only way to treat abdominal adhesions that cause pain, intestinal obstruction, or fertility problems. More surgery, however, carries the risk of additional abdominal adhesions. Abdominal adhesions are important because they are a common cause of abdominal symptoms, particularly abdominal pain and they can cause bowel blockages or obstruction. The term adhesions refers to the formation of scar tissue between bowel loops (small or large intestine) and the inner lining of the abdominal wall (peritoneal lining) or with other organs within the abdominal cavity (liver. Introduction. Abdominal adhesions can cause serious morbidity and complicate subsequent operations. Their diagnosis is often one of exclusion due to a lack of a reliable, non-invasive diagnostic technique. Development and testing of a candidate technique are described below. Method. During respiration, smooth visceral sliding motion occurs between the abdominal contents and the walls of the Cited by: 5.

Adhesions can cause various disorders, depending on the tissues affected. In the eye, adhesion of the iris to the lens can lead to glaucoma. In the intestines, adhesions can cause partial or complete bowel obstruction. Adhesions inside the uterine cavity can cause a condition called Asherman syndrome. This can cause a woman to have irregular.
