Post-surgical adhesions are a major complication leading to organ dysfunctions, pain, intestinal obstruction, and infertility. The incidence of post-surgical adhesion is really high. The factors involved in the pathogenesis of post-surgical fibrosis, are largely unknown, for example why two patients with similar abdominal operation have a different risks of adhesion severity? High secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines and growth factors, includes tumour necrosis factor α (TNF-α), interleukin 6 (IL6), and transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) by persistent recruitment of immune cells and the inappropriate proliferated fibroblast/mesothelial cells can stimulate signalling pathways particularly TGF-β leads to the up-regulation of some pro-fibrotic genes that impair fibrinolytic activity and promote extracellular matrix (ECM) accumulation. In this review, we focus on the role of diabetes and hyperglycaemia on post-surgical fibrosis, including the molecular mechanisms affected by hyperglycaemia that cause inflammation, oxidative stress, and increase the expression of pro-fibrotic molecules. Keywords: Hyperglycaemia; extracellular matrix deposition; inflammation; oxidative stress; post-surgical adhesion.
