If you're scheduled for any type of surgery, it has most likely become your main focus. But, it's also important to think about your recovery. Adhesions, or internal scar tissue, are common after surgery in the abdomen or pelvis. It's essential to know the facts and discuss your options with your doctor before surgery. The more you know about adhesions, the more prepared you'll be to talk with your doctor and ensure the right preventive measures are being taken.

Seprafilm® Adhesion Barrier is indicated for the reduction of post-surgical adhesions in patients undergoing abdominal or pelvic laparotomy.
Important Safety Information
Seprafilm should not be wrapped around an intestinal anastomosis as such usage may result in increased anastomotic leak related events, such as abscess or peritonitis. The safety and effectiveness of Seprafilm has not been established in combination with other adhesion prevention products and/or in surgical procedures not within the abdominopelvic cavity. The safety and effectiveness of Seprafilm has also not been evaluated in cases of pregnancy, malignancy, or frank infection. The type and frequency of adverse events reported are consistent with events typically seen following abdominopelvic surgery when used as directed.
