Films, Postsurgical Adhesion Inhibition

Definition : Films (e.g., oxidized regenerated cellulose, sodium hyaluronate/carboxymethylcellulose) designed to act as a temporary barrier inhibiting postsurgical adhesion between tissues and organs. These films are placed on the surface of tissues and organs at the end of surgery, before surgical close, and are typically resorbed by the body in a short period (e.g., several days or weeks). Postsurgical adhesion inhibition films are mostly used in pelvic and gynecologic surgery.
