In brief: Same as Scarring

Adhesion, like adhesive means to stick together. Internal organs in the peritoneal cavity or in joints and other anatomical locations can stick together. This is usually via fibrous tissue the body uses to repair itself after injury.
The injury is surgery. In surgery, we must cut through various tissues and the body reacts with adhesion formation, just as your skin heals together with a cut.
