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 a half 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, it often 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. There are four types of appendicitis:

  • Acute appendicitis
  • Sub-acute appendicitis
  • Recurrent appendicitis
  • Chronic appendicitis

Treatment

Doctor Doing a Surgery

 Diagnosis

The doctor will review your medical history, especially any digestive illnesses and will ask about your digestive symptoms that include timings of your most recent bowel movements, character (watery or hard), and whether the stool was streaked with blood or mucus. Then the doctor will check for pain in your lower right abdomen. After the physical examination, your doctor will order blood tests to check for signs of infection and a urinalysis to rule out a urinary tract problem. Your doctor may order an ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) scan to help confirm the diagnosis. In very young children, a chest X-ray may be needed to rule out pneumonia.

Procedure

The doctor will operate to take out the infected appendix called appendectomy. Surgery is highly recommended at the earliest As it has the potential to burst about 48 to 72 hours after early symptoms. This can spread bacteria inside the body and be fatal. There are two surgical methods used based on severity. Our doctors at Pristyn Care recommend laparoscopic surgery.

  • Laparoscopic Surgery: 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.
  • Laparotomy: A type of open surgery where one incision is done in the right area of the abdomen or in the midline to remove the appendix. This treatment is used in the emergency case of 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 upto 6 weeks.

What are the grades of appendicitis?

There are five types of appendicitis which are classified into different grades as per the severity of the condition:

Grade1- Early appendicitis

This is an initial stage of appendicitis where you feel pain around your navel area. The pain is considered as the first symptom of inflammation in the appendix.

Grade2- Suppurative appendicitis

The pain starts getting severe and may form inflammatory fluids that get collected in the lumen of the appendix. As a result, you may feel pain in the lower abdomen and not around the navel.

Grade3- Gangrenous appendicitis

The inflammation can cause obstruction in regular blood flow in other organs. The blockage can lead to a ruptured appendix resulting in gangrenous appendicitis.

Grade4- Perforated appendicitis

The infection in the appendix can result in a tear that may release infected fluid in other organs of the body. The condition is usually considered advanced and cause complication during appendix removal surgery as well.

Grade5- Phlegmonous appendicitis

A perforated appendix allows releasing infected fluid that turns into an abscess resulting in severe inflammation and compacted appendix.

Potential Risks of Appendicitis

There are a few potential risks that can occur if appendicitis is left untreated:

Abdominal infection- Infected appendix can spread infection in the abdomen. Peritonitis is also considered a serious health complication that occurs due to infection in the abdomen.

Sepsis- When the appendix gets ruptured after being excessively inflamed, the bacteria usually spread in the bloodstream resulting in sepsis. Sepsis can turn fatal and requires immediate assistance. 

Abscess- Delaying treatment can lead to the formation of pus in the appendix. This could be life-threatening and is usually call for emergency attention.
