By way of penetration of the germ , peritonitis can be:
– Primitive ( spontaneous ) were extraperitoneal source of contamination and pathogen transport is about circular ;
– Secondary intraperitoneal contamination due .
After development , are:
⁃ acute ;
⁃ chronic .
After stretching injuries can be :
⁃ diffuse ;
⁃ located.
After the appearance of exudate can be :
⁃ serous ;
⁃ fibrinous ;
⁃ purulent .
Etiopathogenical classification distinguishes peritonitis in : primary, secondary , tertiary and intraperitoneal abscesses .
a) Primary peritonitis is diffuse peritoneal infection that keeps the integrity of the digestive tract and related organs ;
b ) secondary peritonitis break in the digestive tract . Their causes : perforation of the stomach , duodenum , bile contamination , cecal peritonitis , peritonitis from acute pancreatitis , peritonitis genitourinary origin , postoperative and posttraumatic peritonitis , perforation of the intestine ;
c ) tertiary peritonitis are those where collection agent can not locate peritoneal irritation due to poor response of the body ;
d ) intraperitoneal abscesses are localized peritoneal infection .

Clinical and laboratory diagnosis

Clinical manifestations of acute diffuse peritonitis are
1) The pain of sudden onset may be slow onset rarely . Headquarters is at perforation pain as ” coup dagger ” pain is exacerbated by movement ;
2 ) vomiting are infrequent and occur later : initially food , bilious , and rarely faeces ;
3 ) Stopping erratic bowel is initially dynamic disturbances , then chances occlusion mecanoinflamatorie by agglutination ;
4 ) hiccups inconstant ;

• urea is moderately high ;
• Urine examination reveals signs of severe impairment ;
• glucose – the upper limit .
– Empty abdominal radiograph reveals : pneumoperitoneum , bowel distention , dilated loops with the presence of air and liquid.
– Ultrasound reveals intraperitoneal collection ;
– Computer tomography and MRI is an excess for when the diagnosis was established ;
– Point peritoneal lavage ;
– Diagnostic Laparoscopy .


Treatment is surgical in most cases (except for primitive peritonitis ) . As with any surgical emergency , peritonitis requires a preoperative medical treatment , which has to be short and efficient .
Preoperative aims : fluid resuscitation , oxygen , antibiotics , pain killers and fever , renal support , ventilator and vasoactive (TA ) .
Surgery is necessary : eliminate the source of contamination, reduce contamination ( lavage , drainage ) , peritoneal lavage treatment of infections continue treatment by surgery, open abdomen , peritoneal drainage tube drainage . During resuscitation fluid resuscitation continues , oxygen , nasogastric suction probe , organ dysfunction , cephalosporin antibiotics , gentamicin , metronidazole .

    I figured out more new stuff on this weight loss issue. One particular issue is a good nutrition is vital while dieting. A huge reduction in junk food, sugary food items, fried foods, sugary foods, pork, and white-colored flour products might be necessary. Possessing wastes organisms, and poisons may prevent objectives for losing belly fat. While selected drugs briefly solve the matter, the unpleasant side effects usually are not worth it, and in addition they never supply more than a short-lived solution. This is a known undeniable fact that 95 of dietary fads fail. Many thanks for sharing your notions on this blog.

    Another thing I have really noticed is that often for many people, poor credit is the reaction to circumstances outside of their control. One example is they may be actually saddled with an illness and as a consequence they have excessive bills going to collections. It may be due to a occupation loss and the inability to work. Sometimes divorce proceedings can truly send the finances in the wrong direction. Many thanks sharing your ideas on this site.

    Thank you sharing these types of wonderful articles. In addition, the optimal travel and also medical insurance program can often reduce those concerns that come with vacationing abroad. Some sort of medical emergency can rapidly become expensive and that’s absolute to quickly impose a financial impediment on the family’s finances. Having in place the great travel insurance deal prior to leaving is definitely worth the time and effort. Thank you
