Abdominal Scaring and Internal Scaring

In a new study published in February 2014 Fertility and Sterility a group of researchers specifically looked at the abdomen to see if they could find a relationship between the type of scarring externally and whether internal scars existed. They looked at the number of scars, the thickness of the scars, as well as the length of the scars. Prior to scheduled surgery women were recruited to have their abdominal scars evaluated. Indeed those with abdominal cars were more than twice as likely to have internal scaring, or what is known as adhesions, if they had external scars. How surgeons and gynecologists should apply this information is still a bit unclear, but perhaps future studies can guide operative decisions based on the knowledge of your external scar characteristics.
