Eighteen patients with extensive adhesions and 10 undergoing myomectomy had GORE-TEX Surgical Membranes placed in order to prevent adhesion formation/reformation. At the time of second-look laparoscopy the membranes were removed easily and the extent of adhesion was minimal. Preliminary data from 10 additional patients undergoing adhesiolysis demonstrated that the GSM resulted in significantly fewer adhesions than did oxidized regenerated cellulose. The number of patients in this group will be expanded to insure that this difference is maintained.
