Adhesion - Definition


Definition


Adhesion is the union of two organs or tissues that are near to each other but normally separated. They are stuck to each other by a connective tissue. This tissue has the role, among other functions, of protecting the organs that it covers. Adhesions can appear in all areas of the body, due to either a genetic anomaly or an inflammation following a burn, an infection, etc. In certain cases, internal adhesions can have serious consequences; a surgical intervention may then be necessary to eliminate the adhesion.
