The use of adhesion prevention agents in obstetrics and gynaecology

The use of adhesion prevention agents in obstetrics and gynaecology
This new scientific impact paper discusses adhesions, which are fibrinous bands between and within organs that develop after aberrant healing, usually as a consequence of inflammation after surgery or infection.

Adhesions bear a significant economic burden on the NHS, but occurrence has been reduced by laparoscopic and microscopic surgery techniques.

The evidence into the use of anti-adhesive agents in obstetrics and gynaecology is evaluated, concluding that further evidence which incorporates the current health economy is required.

Abstract

This new scientific impact paper discusses adhesions, which are fibrinous bands between and within organs that develop after aberrant healing, usually as a consequence of inflammation after surgery or infection.

Adhesions bear a significant economic burden on the NHS, but occurrence has been reduced by laparoscopic and microscopic surgery techniques.

The evidence into the use of anti-adhesive agents in obstetrics and gynaecology is evaluated, concluding that further evidence which incorporates the current health economy is required.
