Abstract

Eight patients with extensive adhesions and 10 undergoing myomectomy had Gore-Tex surgical membranes placed to prevent adhesion formation/reformation. At the time of second-look laparoscopy, the membranes were removed easily, and the extent of adhesion was minimal. Further studies are ongoing to validate these findings and to compare the Gore-Tex surgical membrane with antiadhesion agents.
