Abstract

Adhesions represent a frequent thought-provoking surgical ramification that greatly affects clinical practice, thereby making adhesion deterrence an important area of public health intervention, research, and the fiscal budget. Postoperative adhesions have been observed in up to 94% of patients after laparotomy. Adhesion-related readmissions, 1year after surgery, were found to be in 1.3% to 1.5% of the therapeutic and diagnostic laparoscopic procedures. This systematic review looks at gynecologic experience with the management of postoperative adhesions and related complications and recommends intervention when data permits.
