The purpose of this review is evaluating the comparative evidence on the benefits and harms of the nasal corticosteroids to help policy makers and clinicians make informed choices.

Barrier agents for adhesion prevention after gynaecological surgery

This review of trials assessed the effects of barriers agents on pelvic pain, live birth and adhesion formation after pelvic surgery.

Agents that prevent the development of abdominal adhesions following surgery: an overview of Cochrane reviews

Abdominal adhesions are web like structures that commonly form following abdominal or pelvic surgery. They are a result of damage to the lining of the abdomen and can cause multiple conditions such as chronic pelvic pain and infertility. Many types of solid, liquid, gel and pharmacological agents have been developed which, when applied during surgery, supposedly reduce the chance that adhesions will develop. However, there has been considerable disagreement as to which agent is more effective. We aimed to summarise the evidence from Cochrane Reviews regarding anti‐adhesion agents in gynaecological surgery.
