Abdominal adhesions, also known as intestinal adhesions are bands of fibrous tissue that get formed in the abdominal cavity. This usually occurs after abdominal or pelvic surgery. Abdominal adhesions, if left unchecked, can cause intestinal obstruction which in turn is a blockage that keeps food or liquid from passing through the small or large intestines.
If left untreated, the blocked parts of the intestine caused by adhesions can die, causing serious complications. However, prompt medical intervention can take care of this condition.
Treatments for abdominal adhesions that cause intestinal obstruction include stabilization followed by medication and in some cases surgery. If the blockage is partial it can be treated with medicines. However complete blockages may require surgery to remove the block itself, along with any parts of the intestine that may have died due to it. Sometimes doctors may recommend inserting a self-expanding metal stent into the area of the blockage by endoscopic means.
Symptoms of intestinal obstruction caused due to abdominal adhesions include:
i. Recurring, cramp-like abdominal pain
ii. Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
iii. Constipation, inability to have bowel movements or pass gas
iv. Distention, which means swelling of the abdomen
