Adhesions are seen: If thisisthe first operative procedure then no adhesions to be expected. On the otherhand excess bowel , especially in the sigmoid colon can result in a twist or kink known as volvulus. Did kink get resolved by the surgeon. Intussecption can also occur and look like kink if intraluminal lesion present.
