Adhesions and second surgery.

Recommended Posts

I have been intrigued by 2 cases of adhesions , One in a  patient operated for ileal atresia and the other with NEC. What is the pathology behind this? Does the type of intestinal surgery or any defect ( vascular , chemical , duration of surgery) affect occurence of adhesions? Is there any way to protect it during surgery ? And any ways to conservatively manage and till when surgery can be delayed? Kindly post your opinions and evidence for this.

Yes, adhesion happen leading to second or third surgery due to the obstruction they produce. So i want to know what is the reason in some baby they are abundant and recurrent whereas in some it is negligible. ? If we know this may be some method can be looked for reducing the recurrence and chances of second surgery due to adhesions.
