Abstract :

Adhesion formation after abdominal or pelvic surgery is a common post-surgical complication and the consequences are a considerable burden for patients, surgeons and the entire health system. This cross sectional study was carried out among Egyptian pregnant women to assess the value of abdominal scar characteristics in predication of intra-abdominal and pelvic adhesions at repeat C-Sections. One hundred pregnant women with one or more previous C-section were enrolled for the study. The results showed that ladies with depressed scar were more likely to have dense abdominal and pelvic adhesions and more than 60% of those with more than 2 sections had combined dense adhesions at different sites of pelvis and abdomen.
