accretio, accretion
Explanation:
accretio: adhesion of parts normally separate from each other

accretion:
1 - increase by external addition; accumulation
2 - the growing together of parts naturally separate
3 - accumulation of foreign matter in a cavity

all from Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary

IMO the "reaktion" part can be ignored in English.
