Rev Med Hered ; 7: La apendicitis y su historia. Appendicitis is a common cause of acute abdominal pain. It is caused by the obstruction of the cecal lumen and can evolve to perforation and peritonitis. This article reviews the initial description and history of appendicitis and describes the signs and symptoms used for diagnosis. Full Text Available Background: Surgical management of acute appendicitis with appendiceal abscess or phlegmon remains controversial.

We studied the results of initial conservative treatment antibiotics and percutaneous drainage if necessary, with or without interval appendectomy compared with immediate surgery. Methods: We undertook an observational, retrospective cohort study of patients with a clinical and radiological diagnosis of acute appendicitis with an abscess or phlegmon, treated in our hospital between January and March Patients younger than 14, with severe sepsis or with diffuse peritonitis were excluded.

A study group of 15 patients with acute appendicitis complicated with an abscess or phlegmon underwent conservative treatment. A control group was composed of the other patients, who all underwent urgent appendectomy, matched for age and later randomized Dependent variables were hospital stay and surgical site infection.

El grupo control se obtuvo del resto de pacientes en. Casi todos los individuos que llegan a la edad adulta han sufrido en el curso de la vida un ataque inflamatorio apendicular. Open versus laparoscopic surgery]. Although laparoscopy has become the standard approach in other procedures, this technique is not generally accepted for acute appendicitis, especially if it is complicated due reports on the increase in intra-abdominal abscesses.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the morbidity in a group of patients diagnosed with complicated apendicitis gangrenous or perforated who had undergone open or laparoscopic appendectomy. We prospectively studied patients who had undergone appendectomy for complicated appendicitis over a two year period. Mean operation time, mean hospital stay and morbidity, such as wound infection and intra-abdominal abscess were evaluated.

These results suggest that laparoscopic appendectomy for complicated appendicitis is a safe procedure that may prove to have significant clinical advantages over conventional surgery.

This is the case of a woman aged 55 presenting with localized acute abdominal pain in right inferior quadrant of 12 hours of course, leukocytosis and peritoneal reaction. The abdominal echography findings showed a supposed epiploitis but the pain intensity and persistence determined the surgical intervention. Epiploic acute appendicitis is a infrequent affection that must to be suspected in case of acute pain in inferior abdominal quadrants and imaging studies are essential for preoperative diagnosis.

Appendicitis is a common cause of emergency surgery that in the population undergoing organ transplantation presents a rare incidence due to late diagnosis and treatment. To report the occurrence of acute appendicitis in a cohort of liver transplant recipients. Retrospective analysis in a period of 12 years among liver transplants, in witch five cases of acute appendicitis were encountered.

Appendicitis occurred between three and 46 months after liver transplantation. The age ranged between 15 and 58 years. There were three men and two women. The clinical presentations varied, but not discordant from those found in non-transplanted patients.

All patients were submitted to laparotomies. Superficial infection of the surgical site occurred in two patients, requiring clinical management. The hospital stay ranged from 48 h to 45 days. Acute appendicitis after liver transplantation is a rare event being associated with a high rate of drilling, due to delays in diagnosis and therapy, and an increase in hospital stay. Abstract: Introduction and objectives: Acute appendicitis is the first cause of surgical emergencies. It is still a difficult diagnosis to make, especially in young persons, the elderly, and in reproductive-age women, in whom a series of inflammatory conditions can have.

Peritoneal Dialysis. An infection of the abdominal lining peritonitis is a common complication of peritoneal dialysis. You might have a lower risk of peritonitis because you connect and disconnect to the dialysis Apendicitis epiploica.

Peritonitis - spontaneous bacterial. Peritonitis may have other causes. These include infection from The operative approach was the laparoscopic transabdominal technique. On one side, in the inguinal region, the preperitoneal space was dissected and the mesh was fixed.

On the other side, as a control, the same procedure has been done without the utilization of mesh. The local parietal peritoneum was approximated with a polyglactin continuous suture. The animals were submitted to euthanasia at the 7th and the 21th days of postoperative evolution.

In the first group, one animal presented adhesion formation where the mesh was placed and, in the second group, there was also one animal with adhesion formation but in the control side. It was concluded that e-PTFE mesh did not incited significant adhesion formation when placed in the preperitoneal space in a swine. Peritoneal mesothelioma.

We report two patients who presented with small bowel obstruction secondary to peritoneal mesothelioma. The difficulties in establishing this diagnosis at an early stage are illustrated. Recent advances in the management of peritoneal mesothelioma are reviewed. Mediante este estudio queremos evaluar si la existencia de un modelo organizativo Enfermedad de Hirschsprung y apendicitis. Full Text Available The literature review examines the main pathological and morphogenetic aspects of the development of peritoneal carcinomatosis and its molecular and biological features.

In addition, the basic principles of peritoneal carcinomatosis classification have been presented and groups of tumors, which may be complicated by dissemination to the peritoneum, have been designated.

Particular attention is paid to the problems of diagnosis and treatment. Peritoneal carcinomatosis. The peritoneum is a mesothelial lining of the abdominal cavity parietal and intraperitoneal viscera visceral.

The cavity contains a small amount of fluid, which circulates from cephalad to caudal to cephalad, influenced by negative pressure under the diaphragm during exhalation, gravity, and bowel peristalsis. Peritoneal reflections and mesenteries divide the cavity into various compartments supramesocolic, inframesocolic, and pelvis. These reflections support the peritoneal organs and provide vascular and nervous connections while within the cavity they influence pathway of intraperitoneal fluid circulation.

Capillary force over convex surfaces influence stasis of fluid and promotes peritoneal seeding; thus, there are numerous areas in which peritoneal masses are seen more commonly. These areas include the undersurface of the diaphragm negative pressure and capillary force , the omentum bathed in fluid , the right lower quadrant oblique course from left superior to right inferior of the small bowel mesentery , the left lower quadrant transverse course of the sigmoid , and the pelvis gravity.

Peritoneal carcinomatosis may be either primary mesothelioma or metastatic. The mode of spread is by direct invasion, lymphatic permeation, peritoneal seeding or hematogenous.

The imaging patterns include fibronodular stranding, nodules, plaques, and masses. Mesenteric thickening may produce pleated or stellate patterns. Spiral CT is the most useful modality in diagnosis and follow-up of peritoneal tumors. Ros, P. Previous imaging reports of peritoneal mesothelioma have described a variety of radiologic appearances, but have not included its pathologic classification. We retrospectively reviewed 10 cases of peritoneal mesothelioma representing the following histologic categories: 7 epithelial, 2 sarcomatoid, and one biphasic.

The sarcomatoid-type appeared as a mass and the biphasic-type had radiologic and gross pathologic features of both sarcomatoid and epithelial types. We conclude that peritoneal mesothelioma presents with a wide spectrum of radiographic appearances and should therefore be included in the differential diagnoses of diffuse as well as localized peritoneal processes.
