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.

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.
