Appendicitis – Means inflammation of appendix. Appendix is a small organ in right lower part of tummy attached to the starting point of large intestine (caecum). It seems to serve no function in humans and is a kind of vestigial organ (organ which is not fully developed in humans as opposed to some animals).
This surgery is usually performed to treat infected appendix.
If not done at appropriate time, the appendix can get deprived of its blood supply and form pus inside.
Simple infection can turn into life-threatening complication in no time, so early examination by a doctor is crucial.
Common symptoms of appendicitis are –
Pain in the right lower abdomen (Can start near navel and shift or spread later)
Nausea or vomiting
Loss of appetite
Fever – may be low grade initially and may get worsen later.
But all these symptoms may not be present and others may be present. Hence examination by your doctor is very crucial to diagnose or rule-out appendicitis.
It usually occurs in teenage but no age is immune. Chances of complications are higher is very young children & elderly.
In pregnant patients, pain may be felt higher as appendix may shift to a higher position as pregnancy advances.
Since appendix is a relatively mobile organ, location of pain may vary depending upon its position in a given person.
Exact cause can not be found in most cases but usual underlying cause is blockage of lumen of appendix which causes infection by bacteria. Pressure inside appendix increases and it begins to swell leading to pain. If not treated on time, pus can form inside appendix and later appendix may rupture leading to spread of pus.
Once the diagnosis of appendicitis is confirmed, surgery is generally recommended. Once appendix has been removed, you can not have same problem again as the organ will be removed during surgery.
Open Surgery – Involves about 5 to 7 cm incision in right lower abdomen to remove appendix.
Laparoscopic or Key Hole Surgery – Usually involves three very small cuts, one for camera and two for instruments used to perform the surgery. Size of the cuts vary from 0.5 cm to maximum of 1 cm. Usually two are of just 0.5 cm and one is of 1 cm. In kids, all can be 0.5 cm. In mini-laparoscopic surgery, some cuts can be further reduced to 0.23 cod
