Adhesion formation after tendon repair is still a challenge in current clinical practice. With the development of material science, more and more materials are used to prepare anti-adhesion membranes for the prevention and treatment of tendon adhesion. Various materials have different physical and chemical features, different localreactions and curative effects at the injury site, so they have their own advantages and disadvantages. This article highlights the common natural biomaterials and synthetic materials used to prepare anti-adhesion membranes, as well as the basic research and clinical applications of anti-adhesion membranes based on various materials, in order to play a reference role in optimizing the design and construction of anti-adhesion membranes.

Key words: tendon adhesion, anti-adhesion membrane, natural biomaterial material, synthetic material
