Adhesion Of Inflamed Surfaces is a frequent result of new-formation. In the case of the granulating wound, if two granulating surfaces, such as the flaps of a stump, be brought together, they coalesce, and the two layers ultimately form a single bond of union, the cicatrix. There may be, in some cases, a regeneration of tissue which may have been lost, but this is generally imperfect. (See under Regeneration.) Adhesion occurs in other cases as well. The inflamed surfaces of pleura, pericardium, peritoneum, etc., commonly coalesce and form permanent adhesions, composed of connective tissue. By means of these adhesions the blood-vessels of the two surfaces communicate, and the adhesion is a permanent one, the cavity being obliterated so far as.adhesion has occurred.
