Everything You Need To Know About Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery

Like any other laparoscopic surgery, laparoscopic appendectomy is minimally-invasive. Appendectomy is the surgical procedure performed by the medical professionals to treat appendicitis or in other words, remove the inflamed appendix from the patient’s body.

The removal of the appendix can be either partial or complete depending upon the severity of the patient’s case. Laparoscopic appendectomy is gaining prevalence recently due to its various advantages over conventional appendix surgery.

We have mentioned some advantages of laparoscopic appendectomy below:

• Minimally-invasive or smaller incisions
• No scars
• Less pain
• Early discharge
• Quick recovery
• Early return to normal life.

Laparoscopic appendectomy cannot be performed in all patients. Here are certain conditions that call for an open appendectomy.

• Obesity
• Ruptured appendix
• History of any abdominal surgery
• Severe infection
• Bleeding issues.

Procedure of Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery

 

Now, let’s come to the entire surgical procedure of laparoscopic appendectomy. Since it’s a minimally-invasive surgical method, the laparoscopic surgeons will make three incisions of near about ½ inches size in the patient’s abdomen to insert the necessary surgical instruments (which include laparoscope, a tiny camera) required for the operation. The entire surgical procedure is conducted with the help of a computer monitor which shows the images of the patient’s abdomen sent by the laparoscope. After completion of the surgery, the laparoscopic surgeons close and dress the stitches in a usual fashion.

Discharge after Laparoscopic Appendectomy

 

The patient can return to his or her home within 1-2 days after surgery. However, the patient needs to get regular follow up appointments from the respective medical professional. The patient will get a complete recovery in a matter of 1-3 weeks.

Precautions after Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery

 

To get quicker recovery and early return to daily activities, you need to follow certain precautions after surgery.

appendix surgery

Appendectomy or conveniently called appendix surgery is a treatment executed to treat appendicitis by removing the appendix altogether. Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix which occurs due to clogging of fecal particles or foreign bodies. If appendicitis is not given serious consideration, it can result in dangerous scenarios like a burst appendix which infects other parts of the body. That’s the only reason why doctors prescribe appendix surgery as an optimum treatment for appendicitis. We can live without an appendix and above all, it’s always better to get rid of something which is inflamed to such an extent.

So, how appendix surgery is performed by medical surgeons? Well, there are two ways to carry out appendectomy,

– Open appendectomy
– Laparoscopic appendectomy.

Nowadays, minimally-invasive appendix surgery is being given more preference if the patient’s case permits, and if not, then open appendectomy becomes the only option. Let’s discuss in brief about the procedures of open and laparoscopic appendectomy.

Open Appendectomy:

 

Open Appendectomy

 

In this method, the surgeon makes one long incision in the lower right abdomen to remove the deceased organ. The operation is complete by making usual stitches. An open appendectomy becomes certain when the ruptured appendix transmits the infection to other body parts.

Laparoscopic Appendectomy:

 

Laparoscopic Appendectomy

 

In laparoscopic appendix surgery, the laparoscopic surgeon uses special devices like laparoscope and thin instruments to remove the appendix. The patient’s abdomen is blown up with carbon dioxide gas (CO2) for better visual convenience. Laparoscopic surgery is entirely carried out with the help of visual monitors and once the appendix is removed, the doctors close the small incisions with sutures and then the CO2 gas is deflated from the abdomen. Some of the known advantages of laparoscopic appendectomy are as follows:

• Early discharge
• A lesser degree post-operative pain
• Near to zero chances of infection
• Cosmetic satisfaction because of almost no scars
• Expeditious or quick recovery
• Early return to normal life.

The surgical technique depends on the patient’s case but post-surgery care is needed for both above-mentioned techniques to facilitate recovery. Here are some discharge guidelines the patient needs to follow at home after surgery:

1. Take better care of your stitches for open appendectomy by keeping the area dry and clean. Do not touch the wound area with uncleaned hands.

2. Rest as much as possible.

3. Never lift or try to lift any heavy object.

4. Choose loose-fitting clothes.

5. Drink a lot of water to curb constipation

6. Consume doctor-prescribed medications.

If you’re looking for a hospital in Varanasi to get appendix surgery, consider Varanasi Hospital to be the one. We are specialists in laparoscopic surgical procedures and also offer cashless hospitalization.

The condition of inflammation of the appendix due to pathogen infection is called appendicitis. It is a 4-inch long tube-like organ that elongates from the large intestine. The inflammation of the appendix is indeed a medical emergency and it needs an appendix surgery to address it by removing the organ.

Normally in cases of appendicitis, the organ doesn’t burst in the primary stages. However, in case this condition is ignored over time, it can definitely burst out of the blue. Thus it’s always recommended to get an appendix surgery well before this emergency arises.

Here we list some warning signs that you might have to admit yourself into the ER due to untreated appendicitis.

Your stomach hurts more:

The pain of appendicitis spreads from the belly to the right abdominal side. If you feel pain while walking, going over a bump in a vehicle or while coughing, your appendix might be on the verge of bursting.

You’re feeling nauseous, vomiting with no appetite:

The inflammation can sometimes lead to feeling nauseous and vomiting. Thus, if you’re feeling the same accompanied by loss of appetite for a while, things might not be going well with you inflamed appendix.

Your bathroom breaks are more frequent than usual:

Appendix in some people is located near the pelvic floor, making it add pressure to the bladder.

So when the bladder come into contact with the inflamed appendix. Often the bladder does not empty in one go and thereby it causes irritation too. It makes you feel you have to go pee frequently.

You have a fever:

Whenever there is any inflammation in the body, the autoimmune system responds by sending a chemical signal to the brain. As a result, we experience fever or even chill. So, if you feel chill and fever, without any other apparent cause, it’s possible it is because of the severe inflammation in the appendix.

You’re feeling disoriented:

In case you’re experiencing two or more of the above-mentioned symptoms along with feeling disoriented, it could indicate severe appendix infection. There is also a chance that infection might have entered the bloodstream. This will lead to affecting the oxygen level in the blood eventually.

Although the symptoms vary from one person to other. If you’re experiencing at least two to three of these above-mentioned symptoms, go for a screening to be on the safe side.

laparoscopic treatment appendicitis Varanasi Hospital

Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix, a 4 inch-long tube organ that extends from the large intestine. Appendicitis is a medical emergency that almost always requires an appendix surgery to remove the appendix.

If an inflamed appendix is left untreated, the appendix will eventually burst, or perforate, spilling infectious materials into the abdominal cavity. This can lead to a serious inflammation of the abdominal cavity’s. That can be fatal unless it is treated quickly with strong antibiotics. So appendix surgery is very important in this case.

The early signs of this vary from person to person. Let’s understand them one by one. However, the most common symptom is as follows:

Extreme and sudden abdominal pain is normally the first symptom of appendicitis.

The pain often begins near the belly button. As it worsens, it will usually shift to the lower right side of the abdomen.

There are some other signs too:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Constipation or diarrhoea
  • Inability to pass gas
  • Low-grade fever and chills
  • A temperature between 99° and 102° Fahrenheit
  • Wanting to have a bowel movement to relieve discomfort
  • Stomach swelling

Although, these symptoms appear in only 50 percent of cases. Some patients may experience stomach pain very slightly or not at all. Others may have less common symptoms.

Symptoms in children and infants

Children and infants may not go through pain in one specific area. There may be tenderness throughout the body, or there may be no pain at all. While children and infants may not experience severe pain as older patients do, research suggests that abdominal pain is still the most common symptom of appendicitis for this age group.

Symptoms in older adults and during pregnancy

Older adults and pregnant women may also experience different signs. The stomach pain may be less severe and less specific. Possible symptoms include nausea, vomiting, and fever. During pregnancy, the pain may move upward toward the upper right quadrant after the first trimester.

Abdominal pain can be a symptom of other conditions that seem like appendicitis. These include Constipation, Stomach lesions, Inflammatory bowel diseases, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, Damage or injury to the abdomen, Stool, parasites, or growths that clog the inside of the appendix.

There is no way to prevent appendicitis. However, detecting early signs of the same can help to deal better with it.
