Reducing the risk of adhesions should be a key topic to discuss with your doctor before surgery.
Your doctor can help reduce the risk of adhesions by using careful surgical technique, including keeping the incision clean (ie, lint free) and using nonreactive suture materials (stitches).
In addition, adhesion barriers are effective at reducing adhesion formation after surgery. An adhesion barrier is a physical barrier that is used to separate injured tissues involved in surgery from other tissues and organs during the healing process. Different types of adhesion barrier materials are available to your doctor
If pelvic adhesions form because prevention was not addressed before or during surgery, the only way to treat them is to remove or separate them in a surgical procedure called adhesiolysis (ad-he-ze-o-li-sis).
Remember to talk to your doctor about reducing risks before your surgery.
