The SCAR-3 study:
Surgical and Clinical Adhesions Research (SCAR)
The largest study ever conducted showing the long-term, population-based frequency and effects of post-operative adhesions.
Until now, studies on adhesions have been limited in size and
scope, in part because complications resulting from adhesions often do
not manifest for several years after surgery, and in part because investigators
lack a non-invasive means of quantifying adhesion formation. The study
published in the Lancet examined the frequency of complications from adhesions
in more than 50,000 patients over a 10-year period.

Vice Admiral Dr. Richard Carmona and Dr. David Wiseman of the IAS, "Medical Symposium on Adhesions" at Wayne State University, Detroit Michigan 2001. IAS representatives Beverly J.
