Caption: Abdominal adhesion. Endoscope view of a patient's abdomen with adhesions between the omentum (centre) and the wall of the uterus (top). The omentum is a membranous sac that hangs down from the stomach, covering the intestines. Adhesions are growths of fibrous (scar) connective tissue formed as a response to tissue trauma. They often result from abdominal surgery. If the adhesions cause severe pain or cause dysfunction of the reproductive organs, they are removed surgically. For images showing surgery to remove the adhesions see M551/388 to M551/394.
