Comparative Study of Mannheim Peritonitis Index and Revised Multiple Organ Failure Score in Predicting Mortality and Morbidity of Patients with Perforation Peritonitis
Abstract: Background: Perforation peritonitis due to hollow viscous perforation continues to be one of the most common surgical emergencies and has got poor prognosis in spite of advances in diagnosis and management. Identifying the patients with severity of peritonitis in its early stage may help in risk assessment of the patient and this will aid in selection of management protocol to reduce the morbidity and mortality.1-2Material & Method: This study included 60 cases of Peritonitis that were admitted and treated in the Department of General Surgery, S.N. Medical College, Agra. The study period was from August 2019 to August 2021. Conclusion: Mannheim Peritonitis index (MPI) is simple and objective scoring system to predict the final outcome of patients with peritonitis and intra- abdominal sepsis. It appears more practical than revised multiple organ failure scoring system.MPI provides an easy and reliable means of risk evaluation and classification for patients with peritoneal inflammation for early intensive management for better outcome of patient.MPI is an easy and effective scoring system with a better option for predicting morbidity and mortality and can be used as a guiding tool to decide on the possible outcome and the appropriate management.
