An adhesion barrier as recognized by FDA is a medical implant that separates internal tissues and organs during healing, and post-surgical procedures. Their main function is to reduce abnormal internal scarring also known as adhesions. Various companies manufacture anti-adhesion barrier products in the form of gels or sheets which are utilized during various surgical procedures.

Commercially available anti-adhesion materials are composed of sodium hyaluronate, Carboxymethylcellulose or even oxidized regenerated cellulose. As adhesion barriers, such as hyaluronic acid, have the highest penetration rate in orthopedic procedures. A consistent rise in the number of patients undergoing fracture repair surgery and, coronary artery bypass grafting is expected to drive the demand for these products across the globe.

During surgeries such as abdominal surgery, adhesion formation is a very common complication, wherein more than 90% of the patients develop intra-abdominal adhesions post-surgery. This leads to issues like infertility, small bowel obstruction, pelvic pain etc. Moreover, many a times, there are readmissions pertaining to these issues while many require further surgery which raises the difficulty and duration of these surgeries, thereby affecting patient’s quality of life significantly.

The use of cutting-edge technologies by surgeons to treat post-surgical adhesion has opened up new opportunities for pharmaceutical businesses to generate income. Since there is no specific medication available for the prevention of surgical adhesions, using adhesion barriers gels is an efficient strategy to lessen or avoid the incidence, extent, severity and concerns of post-surgical adhesions.

Due to the fact that adhesive barriers are the only treatment option for post-surgical adhesions, demand for adhesion barriers is anticipated to increase over the projected period.
