The region between the abdominal wall and the organs it protects is known as the peritoneal space. Usually, this area is unfilled or partially filled with liquid. The name of this fluid is ascites. Moreover, the peritoneum, which lines the abdominal wall, may become inflamed. Constipation, discomfort, nausea, and vomiting may result from this. It may even endanger life if untreated. Numerous illnesses might cause it, which your doctor can identify and treat. A test on a small sample of peritoneal fluid is called a peritoneal fluid culture.

Why is this test recommended?

  • It is usual for germs or fungus to infiltrate the peritoneal space through lymph nodes and blood when your peritoneum becomes inflamed.
  • Peritonitis denotes an inflammation of the peritoneum.
  • More frequently than not, the biliary or digestive tracts are when infection enters the peritoneal area.
  • We refer to this as secondary peritonitis.
  • Peritoneal peritonitis risks include Cirrhosis, often known as ulcerative colitis, which is liver scarring.
  • Stomach ulcers, a compromised immune system, inflammatory diseases of the pelvis, peritoneal dialysis, appendicitis, diverticulitis, and pancreatitis Sepsis and lung infections can result from peritonitis, which can be severe
  • Sepsis is an infection that develops in the body as a result of the presence of germs. To reduce discomfort, large volumes of fluid may be evacuated. The underlying cause of peritonitis must be identified to treat it.
  • A culture of peritoneal fluid may aid in diagnosis.

How should I get ready for this exam?

Before inserting the needle, the region will, if necessary, be shaved. Think you could be pregnant or that you are pregnant.

How is a culture of peritoneal fluid carried out?

  • You'll have a region on your lower abdomen cleansed with an antiseptic and given a local anaesthetic to numb it.
  • Your abdominal cavity will be punctured with a needle that is 1-2 inches long. If putting in the hand is problematic, a tiny incision could be required. A syringe is used to remove the liquid.
  • You can experience pressure during the operation. It is usual to feel lightheaded or dizzy when a lot of fluid is being eliminated.
