Intra-abdominal infections (IAIs) include many pathological conditions, ranging from uncomplicated appendicitis to faecal peritonitis. IAI are classified into uncomplicated and complicated.
IAIs are an important cause of morbidity and mortality. Early clinical diagnosis, adequate source control to stop ongoing contamination, appropriate antimicrobial therapy dictated by patient and infection risk factors, and prompt resuscitation in critically ill patients are the cornerstones in the management of patients with IAIs. However, several critical controversies can be debated in the management of these patients and application of management principles to the individual patient is crucial to optimize outcome.
In order to focus on the management of IAIs the Global Alliance for Infections in Surgery and the World Society of Emergency Surgery (WSES) have designed this course.
MIFOC is a free online course designed to help in understanding what intra-abdominal infections are and how they can be managed.
