Uterine adhesions. Laparoscopic image of the uterus (centre) of a 29-year-old female patient that has become stuck (adhered) to the peritoneum (top), the lining of the abdominal cavity. Adhesions are fibrous bands that form between tissues and organs, often as a result of injury during surgery, in a similar way to scar tissue.
