The simple solution for reducing adhesions

The burden of adhesions
There is growing awareness that post-operative adhesions are a significant cause of intestinal obstructions, chronic pain and even infertility.(1,2) With up to 35% of patients requiring readmittance for repeat surgery to resolve these problems, adhesions are a large burden on time and resources for medical services.(3)

There is a simple solution
Adept is a non-viscous solution of 4% icodextrin for the reduction of adhesions. Using hydroflotation, Adept separates tissue surfaces during the critical period when adhesions are most likely to form, reducing the incidence and severity of post-operative adhesions.(4,5)
