ABSTRACT

Peritoneal adhesions result from a pathologic process active within or adjacent to the peritoneum. Their formation is Nature's effort to combat an injurious process, and is effectual in establishing a limiting wall and often in making inactive the irritating agent. In fulfilling these purposes, peritoneal adhesions are agents for good and a protection to the organism. If these adhesions encroach on, constrict or in various other ways impair the function of the adjacent organs, however, as most frequently they do, they then become a menace to the parts and jeopardize the comfort and vitality of the individual in whom they may occur. When such condition exists it commands the effort of the surgeon to give relief. The prophylactic remedy lies in preventing their formation, and this is perhaps best accomplished by removing the irritant before such mischief can be done. This may be illustrated by the removal of the appendix
