Abscesses and infiltrates of the abdominal cavity, surgical treatment


Purpose of the work. improving the results of surgical treatment of patients with primary intra-abdominal infiltrates and abscesses.

Material and methods. From 2006 to 2019, 191 patients with primary intra-abdominal infiltrates and abscesses were treated. The patients' age ranged from 16 to 85 years. There were 96 male patients (50.26%), 95 female patients (49.74%).

Results. The patients were divided into 3 subgroups depending on the underlying disease. The first group included 74 (38.74%) patients with destructive appendicitis, of which 39 (20.42%) were in the control group, and 35 (18.32%) were studied. The second group included 48 (25.13%) patients suffering from perforated gastric ulcer and 12 duodenal ulcer, of which the control group was 26 (13.61%), and the studied group was 22 (11.52%). The third group included 69 (36.13%) patients with cholecystitis, of which 37 (19.37%) were in the control group, and 32 (16.76%) were studied. All patients were operated on.

Conclusions. Surgical treatment is individualized depending on the disease, so with destructive appendicitis from 74 (38.74%) laparotomic in 42 (21.99%), laparoscopic in 32 (16.75%), and in 12 (6.28%) with conversion; perforated gastric ulcer and 12 duodenal ulcer in 48 (25.13%) open laparotomy; with cholecystitis from 69 (36.13%) in 48 (25.13%) laparotomic and in 21 (11.00%) laparoscopically. The use of water-jet technologies in 64 (33.51%) patients made it possible to minimize damage to the serous membrane and cleanse the peritoneum from acquired formations.
