What is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is a medical condition where the appendix becomes inflamed and filled with pus, causing severe abdominal pain. The appendix is a small 3 and 1/2-inch-long pouch joined to the large intestine on the lower right side of your belly (abdomen). Appendicitis typically starts with pain around the navel. Within hours, the pain travels to the lower right-hand side, where the appendix usually lies and becomes constant and severe as the inflammation worsens. Although anyone can develop appendicitis at any age, most often it occurs in people between the ages of 10 and 30. At Pristyn Care, we have the finest doctors and medical coordinators who will take care of you until you are relieved.

Diagnosis

The doctors at Pristyn Care are highly experienced and conduct a thorough diagnosis to detect the underlying condition. The diagnosis may include a physical examination in which the doctor would put slight pressure on your abdomen to check the swelling and pain in the lower abdomen region. There are a few diagnostic tests the doctor would recommend to detect the root cause of appendicitis and it's severity:

  • Blood tests
  • Urine culture
  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • CT scan
  • MRI scan

Procedure

Appendicitis can be treated as an emergency as well if the condition is severe. The surgical removal of appendicitis is known as appendectomy. This treatment is considered the best technique in all cases of appendicitis. In case the appendix is ruptured, the doctor will clean the contents from your abdominal cavity. There are two types of appendectomy:

  • Open surgery- In this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the right area of the abdomen or in the midline to remove the appendix. This treatment is used in the emergency case of a burst appendix. The surgeon could clean the abdomen and remove the appendix(Burst appendicitis) or drain the rest of the pus with the help of a tube through the abdominal wall and then remove the appendix (appendicular abscess). After surgery strenuous activities may be avoided for up to 6 weeks.
  • Laparoscopic surgery- This is an advanced form of appendix treatment where the surgeon uses a small device called a laparoscope to remove the appendix through a small cut on the belly. The laparoscope has a tiny video camera and surgical tools. The tube, camera, and tools are put in through the incisions. The surgeon does the surgery while looking at a TV monitor and removes the appendix. It is minimally invasive, one can get back to normal routine in 2-3 days and minimum size scar and wounds.

Benefits of Undergoing Advanced Appendicitis Surgery in Delhi?

Laparoscopic surgery for appendix removal or laparoscopic appendectomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient would be asleep while the surgery is performed. In laparoscopic surgery for appendix removal, a laparoscopic surgeon makes 2-3 small incisions near the belly button and inserts a port which creates an opening and fills the abdomen with gas. Since the abdomen is inflated with gas, the surgeon gets space to perform the surgery well. The surgeon then inserts a laparoscope that has a tiny camera attached to it inside the abdomen. The camera guides the surgeon to view inside the abdomen which the surgeon can see on a monitor. The surgeon locates the appendix and removes it through one of the incisions. The results of a laparoscopic appendectomy may vary from one person to another depending upon several factors. But, in general, this procedure is considered to be the safest of all forms of surgical treatment for the removal of an appendix. Benefits of laparoscopic surgical removal of appendix include:

  • A shorter time in the hospital
  • Getting back to normal activity faster
  • Less pain after post-surgery
  • Nil to very few surgical scars
  • Get back to normal bowel movements sooner
  • Fewer chances of infection
  • A faster recovery duration

What happens when appendicitis is not treated on time?

An appendix may not always cause severe complications. But in some cases, the appendix may burst and cause life-threatening complications. When the appendix bursts, the peritoneum or the appendix lining may get infected with bacteria. This condition is known as peritonitis where the bacteria lining may spread and infect other parts of your abdomen too. It is always better to consult an experienced doctor on time for assistance if you experience any of the following symptoms: 

  • Sudden excruciating pain in the abdomen
  • An increase in the heartbeat
  • A rise in body temperature
  • Trouble breathing
  • Abdominal swelling
