Acute Emergency Conditions & Treatment

Severe conditions that require immediate attention​

Treatments

  • Appendicitis in children – Laparoscopic appendicectomy
  • Intussusception- initially enema reduction (air/saline/barium), failing this, proceed with laparoscopic reduction
  • Painful scrotum (torsion of testis, epididimo- orchitis) – assessment and possibly explorative surgery
  • Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis – laparoscopic pyloromyotomy
  • Abscesses – usually will require drainage of pus and possibly antibiotics
  • Acute foreskin problems- trauma or paraphimosis (stuck foreskin)
  • Foreign bodies in oesophagus or upper airway (eg button batteries, coins) – will often require endoscopic removal
  • Trauma injuries / burns – mostly non-operative, but rarely may require surgery Careful assessment and observation in hospital is crucial
  • Malrotation and volvulus of bowel – urgent surgery
  • Bowel obstruction – can sometimes be treated without surgery, failing that may require surgery however this can be done laparoscopically
  • Meckels diverticulum – surgical excision if presents with symptoms
  • Bleeding from intestine (heamatemesis, vomiting blood or Per rectal bleeding) – often requires endoscopy
  • Lumps on necks (thyroglossal cysts, branchial cysts) Cold abscesses​
  • Infections – urinary tracts, penis (balanitis, due to tight foreskin or phimosis)
  • Intra abdominal infections – abscess, liver abscess, splenic cysts. All may require antibiotics and/or drainage of pus
  • Acute abdominal pain – mesenteric adenitis, constipation, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohns disease or Ulcerative colitis), the vast majority will not require surgery following assessment
  • Lumps in the abdomen, eg: bile ducts abnormality –choleduochal malformations; abnormalities of the bowel or the blood supply of the bowel, Meckels diverticulum, bowel duplication or mesenteric cysts. Most of these presents with symptoms hence surgical removal is the most probable course of action
