Did You Know?
While the appendix has no known use to the body, getting it damaged, injured, and infected can pose a great threat to health. When the sac or pouch-like structure becomes inflamed, it can burst, opening the gastrointestinal tract to the rest of the abdomen. GI contents are dirty and can cause widespread infection if the appendix isn’t removed before it bursts. Appendicitis is characterized by severe abdominal pain and rebound tenderness (pain when pressure is released) and can be caused by:
- An obstruction such as food waste or stool can block the cavity of the appendix and start an infection.
- An infection from the GI tract can also damage the appendix and cause it to become inflamed.
Whether it is due to an obstruction or infection, when the appendix is closed off, bacteria can rapidly multiply inside which causes the inflammation. A ruptured appendix is the most common – and dangerous – complication.
