Advancements in Laproscopic Adhesion Surgery?

I looked at the site and sometimes it is a little confusing. But
anyway, I am somebody that had a couple of adhesion surgeries where they
cut out some adhesions after a botched laparcopic inguinal hernia
surgery where the mesh had been contracted. I found an excellent
surgeon who has been working with me in the Seattle area. He used a
Serpafilm slurry mixed to place over the intestines once the adhehesions
had been cut out. This worked tremendously but I can sense they are
coming back a little. But overall I am about 90% better since last
October. I came across a website called Confluentsurgical.com some time
ago. It says their Spraygel is not yet approved in the US. It was back
last year when I tried calling their number (781) 693-2300 and the
person answered did not know anything about SprayGel.
Can somebody provide some updates about what is going on in the area of
laparscopic adhesion surgery? I thought they had a mesh like material
that they can place laparcopically but apparently not!
