Abstract

Abdominal surgery, peritonitis, and pelvic inflammatory disease often give rise to intra-abdominal adhesions. They may lead to chronic pain, infertility, bowel obstruction, etc. Development in surgical strategies in the last decade has resulted in an increase in laparoscopic procedures and, as a consequence, a steep rise in reported bowel lesions. Accordingly, noninvasive diagnostic tools are desirable to identify adhesions before abdominal surgery. This study was designed to validate transabdominal ultrasonography (TAU) and magnetic resonance imaging (cine MRI) for detection of abdominal wall adhesions.
