Abstract

Postoperative adhesions are scar tissues, which develop at the site of tissue injury after surgery.1 Their potential significance is immense because of the frequency with which they form, as well as their consequences of potential morbidity and mortality.2 Yet, many surgeons minimize their significance because of the general inability to identify adhesions without performing a repeat surgery, as there are not good serologic markers or accurate imaging modalities (e.g., ultrasound, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging scans) and the perceived inability to do anything about them.
