Caption: Explorative laparotomy. Surgeon using Metzenbaum scissors to remove adhesions during an explorative laparotomy. Adhesions are fibrous attachments that form between tissues and organs that are not normally connected. Intestinal adhesions can often occur following abdominal surgery. A laparotomy involves making a large incision in the abdominal wall to gain access to the abdominal cavity. Here, it is being performed to examine the patient's intestines.
