Other causes of pelvic adhesions, such as pelvic inflammatory diseases (PID) or known cases of endometriosis, had been excluded.
Adhesions detected during laparoscopy had been classified according to the locality into (1) adnexal adhesions, which were shown partially or totally covering the tube or ovary, or both; adnexal adhesions might interfere with the free fimbrio-ovarian movement or lead to fimbrial agglutination and fimbrial block, and (2) nonadnexal adhesions, which were shown between the uterus and bladder anteriorly, or the colon posteriorly, or fixing the fundus to the abdominal wall.
At the present laparotomy, the patient had extensive adhesions with a complete fixation of the small intestine.
The loops of the small intestine showed adhesions and required adhesiolysis again.
Role of endometrial suppression on the frequency of intrauterine adhesions after resectoscopic surgery.
Factors associated with operative hysteroscopy outcome in patients with uterine adhesions or submucosal myomas.
Conclusion: Despite its potential for bone marrow toxicity, Mitomycin-C seems to effectively prevent adhesions. Further studies that prove an acceptable safety profile relating to this promising anti-adhesive agent are required before moving into clinical trials.

All patients had bowel adhesions
, band formation and impacted hard stool in bowel (Figure 2).
It has been reported that post-operative inflammatory responses play a significant role in the formation of adhesions
Exclusion criteria were: endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory disease history, previous abdominal or pelvic surgery other than CS; vaginal delivery history, multiple pregnancy, corticosteroid usage; post operative infectious complications history such as wound infection, endometritis or abscesses which were thought to be risk factors for intraperitoneal adhesions
,SG and wound healing respectively.
Grade 4 adhesions
were seen only in three rats in the control group.
form as a result of contact between raw surface of operated nasal septum and the lateral nasal wall.
Cytokines such as IL-6 and TGF-[beta] are of vital importance during the formation of adhesions
. IL-6 is a key cytokine for regulating the proliferation of epithelial cells and promoting the deposition of inflammatory cells and fibrosis at damage sites .
It was concluded that both the later stages of terminal differentiation (stratification) and senescence reduced the adhesion
rate of NHEKs to FN but that differentiation alone did not.
