What Is The Cause Of Appendicitis?
80% of cases of acute appendicitis are caused due to obstruction of lumen of appendix. Obstruction could be because of the reasons like a faecolith, worms if present in the intestines and rarely a foreign body like seeds.
What Are The Symptoms?
Severe pain that is around the navel, which shifts to the right lower abdomen after few hours. Coughing and straining cause an increase in the pain. Pain is accompanied by nausea and vomiting. There are very less common complaints that include burning on passing urine and loose stools.
What Is The Treatment?
The treatment of acute appendicitis is removal of the appendix (i.e. Appendicectomy). Appendectomy can be performed as open surgery using one abdominal incision about 2 to 4 inches long . Or the surgery can be done through a few small abdominal incisions (laparoscopic surgery). During a laparoscopic appendectomy, the surgeon inserts special surgical tools and a video camera into your abdomen to remove your appendix.
