The use of laparoscopic surgery is widespread worldwide and is becoming the standard procedure. Postoperative adhesion, which is one of the typical postoperative complications, is considered to be less likely to occur compared with open surgery. However, once complications, such as small bowel obstruction or chronic abdominal pain, occur due to adhesion, the minimal invasiveness can be greatly impaired, and it can also become costly from a medical economics perspective. In the past, anti-adhesion absorption barrier films have been used to prevent adhesion, but there are many cases in which laparoscopic techniques are required, depending on the site of intraperitoneal attachment. Herein, we report a device that can easily attach an absorbent barrier preparation.
