From: Evaluation of recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator in adhesion prevention and neoangiogenesis in a rat experimental adhesion model

Tenacity
0) None

2) Adhesions lysed with traction
3) Adhesions required sharp dissection
Type
0) None
1) Filmly, no vessels (transparent)
2) Dense, no vessels (translucent)
3) Dense, vascular, small vessels
4) Dense, vascular, big vessels
Extent (percentage of silastic surface covered by adhesions)
0) – 0%
1) – <25%
2) – <50%
3) – <75%
