IHRT is a human rights team of persons from around the world who suffer with ARD. We share a common goal of protecting ourselves and others from practices not wise for persons afflicted with ARD. We address issues surrounding ARD in a public format so that those with ARD are informed in every aspect of an issue so that they can make an informed decisions about health care.
ARD, CAPPS, Adhesions and Adhesion Related Disorder , Internal Scar Tissue, Hope for those who suffer from Adhesions
Adhesions lead to considerable patient morbidity and are a mounting burden on surgeons and the health care system alike. Although adhesion formation is the most frequent complication in abdominal and pelvic surgery, many surgeons are still not aware of the extent of the problem. To provide the best care for their patients, surgeons should consistently inform themselves of anti-adhesion strategies and include these methods in their daily routine.
Searches were conducted in PubMed and The Cochrane Library to identify relevant literature.
You have got to be kidding us. Poor Angela. Did you really make this? Sick with ARD. Desperate to be well. We notice Karen also shares copyright. If this isn't delusional fanaticism, we don't know what is. Leave a comment if you are horrified. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIyOmgSfHEM
Please show this post to your medical professional. Imagine this poor patient trapped in a plastic surgery clinic in Germany. 8 major abdominal surgeries in a hospital with no ICU. You are so lucky to be alive. Do not even consider this surgeon as an option.
Some of the cases with “Frozen abdomen” are so severe that they present not only adhesions to the abdominal wall and between the bowel loops, but have all organs and bowel loops surrounded by a very dense connective tissue, glueing the organs together and causing constrictions of the bowel.
Those patients need a “Multi-Step-Adhesiolysis” according to the EndoGyn concept and are informed after the first procedure that we will work upon their symptoms in different abdominal quadrants by setting-up a multistep adhesiolysis according to their symptoms.
The first step always includes full adhesiolysis of the abdominal wall as these adhesions are often causing bowel obstructions. Also a partial interluminal adhesiolysis of the bowel loop adhesions is included in the first step.
So in January 2010 the patient was admitted again and we performed the 3rd look procedure on January 18th, 2010, followed by 7 other laparoscopic procedures due to an infection and to avoid reformation of adhesions.
We had to keep the patient for 31 days in the hospital and she had all together 8 surgeries performed.
