Abstract
The aim of this work was to eassess the contribution of imaging in the management of non-traumatic abdominal surgical emergencies at the General Surgery Department of the Ignace Deen National Hospital. Material and methods: This was a prospective, descriptive study that included for 6 months all patients admitted and operated for a non-traumatic abdominal surgical emergency and having performed at least one imaging test. Results: During our study period, Non-traumatic abdominal surgical emergencies accounted for 25.27% of admissions. The average age was37.58 years old with a male predominance (65.3%) and a sex ratio of 1.88. The mean consultation time was 66.92h±40.15. PSA was the most performed imaging test (86.44%) followed by abdominal ultrasound (8.47%). The main non-traumatic abdominal surgical emergencies observed were acute generalized peritonitis (45.8%), followed by acute intestinal obstruction (44.1%). The agreement between imaging and operative diagnosis was 93.46% on PSA, 92.86% on abdominal ultrasound and 100% on abdominal CT. Conclusion: Non-traumatic abdominal surgical emergencies are frequent, imaging examinations (ASP, ultrasound) allow a good appreciation of all non-traumatic abdominal emergencies when they are judiciously used. In addition, CT, although essential, remains inaccessible due to its cost, thus limiting its emergency use.
