Resection of Pelvic Adhesions
Pelvic adhesions (scar tissue that creates bands between pelvic organs) can develop after inflammation from complex GYN conditions like endometriosis, infection, or from previous surgical procedures, including Cesarean sections. These adhesions can create a condition called frozen pelvis, where the internal organs become stuck together. Pelvic adhesions require advanced GYN surgical expertise. Scar tissue can be completely asymptomatic and not cause any problems, however, when scar tissue causes infertility, gastrointestinal problems (bloating, constipation), or pain, surgical resection needs to be considered.
Pelvic adhesion resection is a complex procedure that should only be performed by an experienced laparoscopic GYN specialist. Using DualPortGYN, the CIGC surgeons perform this advanced procedure while ensuring additional adhesions do not form. The incisions are cosmetically placed at the midline between the abdominal muscles, so pain is minimized and scars are practically invisible.
Choosing the right specialists for pelvic adhesion removal is an essential part of managing your condition. Many women spend tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket for specialist care. At CIGC, we accept most major insurance, allowing our patients can focus on getting healthy. Our advance-trained specialists understand how to perform advanced laparoscopic procedures and prevent additional adhesions from forming while protecting the delicate organs in the pelvic cavity. Choose the world-renowned minimally invasive resection of pelvic adhesion specialists.
The CIGC Laparoscopic Resection Of Pelvic Adhesions Advantage
The CIGC laparoscopic GYN surgical specialists perform DualPortGYN resection of pelvic adhesion procedures with some of the most modern minimally invasive techniques available. The ability to map the pelvis with RP Dissection and to control blood loss with uterine artery ligation/occlusion makes it possible to perform advanced procedures efficiently with exceptional results.
RP Dissection: Retroperitoneal dissection is an advanced technique used to help laparoscopic GYN specialists visualize and map the pelvic cavity. The retroperitoneal space is covered by a membrane called the peritoneum. By going behind (retro) the lining (peritoneal), the surgeon completely visualizes all of the anatomy of the pelvis including:
- Ureter (the tube that drains urine from the kidney to the bladder)
- Large vessels of the pelvis
- Lower portion of the bladder
This technique is important for the treatment of pelvic scarring. By visualizing the pelvic cavity, the CIGC surgical specialists can resect adhesions and prevent injuries or complications both during and after the surgery.
Uterine Artery Ligation/Occlusion: UAL or UAO refers to blocking the blood flow to the uterus. Bilateral Uterine Artery Ligation/Occlusion (BUAL or BUAO) is the same as UAL. Bilateral means UAL is performed on both sides of the uterus.
This is an important skill that is essential to performing CIGC procedures. Many women with complex GYN conditions often have uncontrolled bleeding at the neck of the uterus. Without using these techniques, non-CIGC surgeons often have to convert to open surgery, which increases risks, recovery time and pain to the patient. More concerning is the potential for injury to other structures near the uterine artery such as the ureter and bladder, which can lead to complications and additional surgery. If a surgeon has to convert to an open procedure, additional adhesions can form.
To prevent this, the CIGC specialists use either ligation (permanent blockage of the main source of blood flow to the uterus), or occlusion (temporary blockage that uses removable clips or a tourniquet). When the uterine artery is blocked at its source, it eliminates the problems of excessive bleeding and helps prevent injury to the surrounding structures that can occur during surgery. UAL or UAO must be performed by a skilled retroperitoneal laparoscopic surgeon.
