Role of USG and Plain Radiograph in Non-Traumatic Acute Abdomen

Dr. Jitendra Singh Sisodiya | Dr. Rajesh Mehta [2]


Abstract: Background: The most frequent reason for emergency admissions is acute abdominal. The ability to diagnose disease early with tests like X-ray and ultrasound helps prevent unnecessary laparotomies and allows for rapid treatment. Acute abdomen patients who are seriously ill develop suddenly, over a period of several hours or a few days. Materials and Methods: The study was carried out at R. D. Gardi Medical College and C. R. Gardi Hospital, Ujjain subject to approval by the ethical committee, in the Department of Radio-diagnosis.109patients presenting to the hospital with acute non-traumatic& non-obstetric abdominal conditions in whom the clinical diagnosis has been done already (Male or female of more than 10yrs of age) during the study period were included in the study. Patients who presented to us with acute abdomen were admitted to the hospital and were subjected to a plain x-ray of the abdomen or ultrasonography of the abdomen. Results: A total of 109 patients were enrolled in our study, 69 of whom were men (64%) and 40 of whom were women (36%). The following was the cause of acute abdomen in our investigation. There were 29 individuals with intestinal obstruction instances (27%). 41 patients (38%) had cases of acute ureteric/renal and vesical calculi.6% of patients had GI perforations. There were 6 individuals (5%) with acute appendicitis.09 individuals (8%) had acute cholecystitis.2% of the patients had acute pancreatitis.10 patients (9%) had liver abscesses. Two patients (2%), or pyonephrosis on the left, were seen. Conclusion: This study demonstrates the critical significance that straightforward USG and plain radiograph play in making a conclusive diagnosis of acute abdomen and preventing unwanted laparotomies.
