The article presented does not contain sufficient scientific importance, there is insufficient scientific proof for the proposed diagnosis. The results are not appropriately interpreted and does not support the conclusions deduced. The manuscript is appropriately written and includes appropriate references but does not contribute to what is already known about this issue. The manuscript does not follow the appropriate guidelines for that type of study.

Based on the abstract a very interesting topic particularly if authors present a reliable way to distinguish congenital bands from postoperative adhesions.

  1. The manuscript should be cheked by an English native speaker.
  2. Please define abbreviations in the manuscript at their first occurrence.
  3. The following sentence should be clarified: ”Identification of such congenital bands in a previously operated patient for exploratory laparotomy is still rarer”.
  4. Please check for references format and annotations in the body text.
