What is Adhesion Release?
Why does a patient need Adhesion Release?
Adhesions are more common in abdomen. They are usually formed in response to an abdominal surgery or injury. If adhesions are not treated properly, they lead to other conditions
What are the different types of Adhesion Release?
To treat adhesions, the surgeon performs one of the two common surgical procedures – laparoscopy and laparotomy. The treatment is chosen based on the symptoms the patient is experiencing and his medical history.
Laparoscopy: The surgeon makes multiple small incisions around the area of adhesions. He then inserts a laparoscope attached to a camera into the body through one of the small holes. Using the images from the camera, the surgeon confirms the presence and location of adhesions. He will then cut and release the scarred tissue using special tools inserted into the body through the remaining incisions.
Laparotomy: This procedure is also called celiotomy. The surgeon makes a larger incision to get access to the abdominal cavity and see the adhesions. He will than treat the tissue and closes the incision with stitches.
