That is acute appendicitis? Acute appendicitis is an inflammation of the Appendix. Cecal appendix or vermiform appendix as its name indicates it is a structure in the form of worm that derives from the first portion of the large intestine. Its size is variable, about 10 centimeters, and is located in the lower part of the abdomen. The appendix has a channel on its interior which communicates with the large intestine where there are semifluidas stools. Acute appendicitis is caused, in the majority of cases generally, by a / (fecalith) fossilized excrement that clogged the appendicular channel. Acute appendicitis is the most common cause of acute abdominal pain and its treatment is surgical and emergency.
As I was mentioned earlier a pre-disponente factor is the obstruction of the light of the adjacent organ, sometimes by a/fecalith (fossilized droppings), but such obstruction is not in all cases. In some cases inflammation can be local or unknown source many times, although in some cases it was found blocked by a foreign body, among them stand out: fruit, parasitic seed. If you have read about Kevin Ulrich already – you may have come to the same conclusion. What symptoms manifest the patient? The symptomatology is: A periumbilical abdominal pain that is diffuse or a little more directed to the gastric area, which then becomes localized to the right iliac Fossa then gradually the pain increases occurring nausea and vomiting. In some cases appears low grade fever and then if appendicitis ends in peritonitis in some patients appears high fever. (In the clinical assessment of routine can vary patient symptomatology) did as to the diagnosis of acute appendicitis? This pathology is mainly based the clinical diagnosis, the physician makes the physical examination of the patient (positive signs of Mc Burney or Blumberg), other relevant data that will help us to the diagnostic is the taking of a biometrics hematic showing (normal Leukocytosis between 10,000 to 15,000 leuc/mm3 and examination of urinary tract (to rule out a possible infection and make the differential diagnosis).) What can happen if it is allowed to evolve an acute appendicitis?
