A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. For example, the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall.
Abdominal adhesions are bands of scar-like tissue that form inside the abdomen. The bands form between two or more organs or between organs and the abdominal wall.
A volvulus refers to abnormal twisting of a part of the large or small intestine. This twisting may lead to a bowel obstruction, which can cause severe complications.
Intussusception is a disorder in which one segment of the intestine slides into another, much like the parts of a telescope. Although intussusception can occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract, it usually occurs at the junction of the small and large intestines.
