Appendix Treatment


The appendix is a small, finger-like pouch located at the junction of the small intestine and the large intestine, typically in the lower right abdomen. While the exact function of the human appendix is not entirely clear, it is believed to be a vestigial organ, which means it may have had a more significant role in our evolutionary ancestors.

In some cases, the appendix can become inflamed and infected, a condition known as appendicitis. Appendicitis is a medical emergency and usually requires surgical removal of the appendix to prevent complications.


Appendicitis, the inflammation of the appendix, can occur for several reasons, but the exact cause is not always clear. Some potential reasons include:

1. Obstruction : One common cause is the obstruction of the appendix by stool, foreign bodies, or swollen lymph nodes, which can lead to the buildup of bacteria and subsequent infection.

2. Infection : Infections in the gastrointestinal tract can also lead to the inflammation of the appendix.

3. Genetics : There may be a genetic component that makes some individuals more susceptible to appendicitis.

4. Mucous buildup : It's possible that excessive mucus production in the appendix can lead to blockages and inflammation.


The term "types of appendix" may not be commonly used in the context of the human anatomy. The appendix itself is a small, tube-like structure attached to the cecum, a part of the large intestine. However, if you're asking about variations or conditions related to the appendix, here are a few concepts:

1. Normal Appendix : This refers to a healthy and non-inflamed appendix with no specific abnormalities.

2. Inflamed Appendix : When the appendix becomes inflamed, it is known as appendicitis. This condition can vary in severity and can lead to complications if not treated promptly.


The symptoms of appendicitis, which is the inflammation of the appendix, can include:

1. Abdominal Pain : The most common symptom is pain that starts around the navel and then moves to the lower right side of the abdomen. The pain often becomes more severe over time.

2. Loss of Appetite : Many people with appendicitis experience a loss of appetite.

3. Nausea and Vomiting : Nausea and vomiting may occur, often as a result of the abdominal pain.

4. Fever : A low-grade fever can sometimes accompany appendicitis.

5. Diarrhea or Constipation : Changes in bowel habits may occur.

6. Swelling and Tenderness : The abdomen may become swollen and tender to the touch.

7. Rebound Tenderness : When pressure is applied and then released on the lower right side of the abdomen, there may be increased pain (rebound tenderness).

Treatment of Appendix

The most common treatment for appendicitis is the surgical removal of the inflamed appendix. This procedure is known as an appendectomy and can be performed using two main methods:

  • Open Appendectomy : In this traditional approach, a small incision is made in the lower right abdomen, and the appendix is removed. This method is still used when laparoscopic surgery is not feasible.
  • Laparoscopic Appendectomy : This minimally invasive procedure involves making several small incisions in the abdomen and using a camera and specialized instruments to remove the appendix. Laparoscopic surgery often results in a shorter recovery time and fewer complications.


Spreading of the infection outside the inflamed appendix, this results in formation of a lump which forms with the inflamed appendix, omentum, small bowel and large bowel.This condition is usually dealt with conservative management as surgery done with appendicular lump can be more extensive.

Three small key hole incisions are made in the abdomen and the appendix is removed.The patient is usually discharged within 24 hrs of the operative procedure.
