Post-operative intra-abdominal processes Pathophysiology Peritonitis or abscess presenting in the post-operative period is a complication of concern to most surgeons. Several situations are associated with a higher risk for the development of these complications, including operations performed in emergency settings or in less than ideal circumstances. Similarly, patients with significant comorbid conditions or malnutrition are also at increased risk. Causes include enteral spillage due to disease or during operation, anastomotic leakage due to technical errors, poorly healing tissues, or concurrent infection, which can lead to peritoneal seeding, tissue necrosis, or recurrent infection following surgical and antibiotic treatment (ie, tertiary peritonitis).

The intervention was always decided by the senior surgeon. The data showed that only 50% of the laboratory findings correlated with acute appendicitis. The usual characteristics and clinical signs (eg, pain, tenderness of the abdomen) and a thorough and repeated clinical assessment over time were the main factors given by the experienced surgeon to support the need for an operation.
