    Since March 2001 we have been using this novel spray substance (spray gel) to prevent adhesions following gynaecological surgical procedures.

    In general, adhesions are formed after all surgical measures involving laparotomy.

    But even during laparoscopy, which is a form of minimally invasive surgery, wound surfaces can be formed during certain procedures, such as for example endometriosis or myoma operations.

    These surfaces can adhere to each other, thus forming adhesions.

    WHAT IS THE NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT OF ADHESIONS?

    Medication can play a crucial role in controlling pain – whether acute or chronic.

    For acute pain, medication is often the first treatment choice.

    For chronic pain, it may serve as part of a broader treatment package.

    This could include exercise, physical therapy and behavior change.

    Although they can be helpful, medications aren’t a cure-all and can cause side effects or be ineffective and costly.

    HOW ARE ADHESIONS DIAGNOSED?

    When the chronic pain of adhesions is involved, it is very difficult to be diagnosed correctly.
    Diagnostic tests such as blood tests, X-ray procedures, CT scans, MRIs, and Ultrasound will notdiagnose adhesions.
    However, your doctor will have to rule out other medical conditions; and depending upon your symptoms, your doctor will order the appropriate diagnostic tests.
    If the results of these tests are normal or negative for abnormal pathology, then a diagnostic laparoscopy may be appropriate.

    Adhesions are one of the best hidden secrets or enigmas of modern medicine

    The word adhere literally means to stick or to bind together.

    When tissue that is normally not connected grows together, it is called an adhesion. It is also commonly referred to as scar tissue.

    Adhesions are fibrous tissues (scar tissue) that cause organs within the body to adhere to other internal organs that are not normally connected.

    Adhesions may appear as thin sheets of tissue similar to plastic wrap or as thick fibrous bands.
