Best Appendix Surgeon in Delhi – Dr. Sushant Wadhera
- The appendix is a worm shaped tubular structure at the junction of the small and large bowel in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen
- It gets inflamed commonly when a fecolith gets stuck at the base of the appendix with the large bowel leading to distension and swelling of the appendix. This leads to severe excruciating pain which may radiate down to thighs or even to groin.
The acute attack of appendicitis is usually diagnosed by clinical examination and confirmed by Ultrasound and blood tests. In some cases a CT-scan may be required to confirm the diagnosis if the clinical picture is confusing.
Management of Appendicitis
- During an acute attack the patient is usually hospitalized and may require emergency APPENDECTOMY.
- Sometimes if there is a formation of an appendicular lump then the surgeon may decide to perform an INTERVAL APPENDECTOMY after a few weeks .
