Question and answer
ruputered appendix could lead to
•If left untreated or not diagnosed early an appendix tears or burst that can lead to an abscess or swollen area within body tissue that contains accumulation of pus or bacteria. [ This situation can lead to the inflammation of the membranes lining the abdominal wall and organs. This condition can be life-threatening if not treated on time. •An uncommon complication of a ruptured appendix is the blockage of intestine, as the intestinal muscle stops working due to the inflammation surrounding the appendix. This causes the abdomen to swell up as the contents in the intestine cannot pass.
Nausea and vomiting are major symptoms of an intestinal blockage. •A feared but rare complication is sepsis. This life-threatening condition occurs when the infected bacteria of the appendix enter the blood stream and travel to other parts of the body. To contain the spread of bacteria and clear up the infection intravenous antibiotics are administered immediately. ]
