Appendicitis can be one of the most common causes of abdominal pain. Acute perforation of the appendix is one of the complications of appendicitis. It can also be complicated by “rupture”. Hence regarded as a surgical emergency. In such cases, there is a risk of the stool contents within the appendix leaking out into the abdomen. This can result in an inflammatory reaction in our body in an attempt to “contain” the spread, creating abscesses. The resulting inflammation also makes surgical removal difficult as the bowel becomes friable. These abscesses can result in prolonged fevers and pain. Complete cleaning of abdomen and Appendicectomy done laparoscopically. Antibiotics were given. The patient recovered very well, discharged on day 3.

Q. What is incarcerated hernia?
A section of the intestine or abdominal tissue that becomes trapped in the sac of a hernia—the bulge of soft tissue that pushes through a weak place in the abdominal wall—is known as an incarcerated hernia. Stool may not be able to pass through the intestine if a section of it is trapped.
Incarcerated inguinal hernias usually cause swelling in the groin region, and some may show redness. If bowel obstruction has occurred, some additional symptoms may include sudden onset of pain, lack of appetite, irritability, and nausea or vomiting.Read more
