Abdominal adhesions following abdominopelvic surgical interventions are well-known causes of increased morbidity and mortality at early and late postoperative period. It is suggested that intraabdominal adhesions are thought to be developed secondary to peritoneal or bowel serosal surface trauma, foreign body reaction and ischemia. In present study, development and clinical importance of postoperative peritoneal adhesions are discussed together with literature knowledge.
