What Is A Perforated Bowel?
A perforated bowel is a medical emergency. A perforated bowel is a hole, nick or cut in the stomach, small intestine or large intestine. When the bowel ruptures in such a way the contents of the bowel itself will leak into the abdominal cavity.
This may result in:
- sepsis (infection of the blood)
- septic shock
- organ damage
In severe cases a ruptured bowel can cause death. A ruptured bowel can also be referred to as: a perforated bowel or a torn bowel.
What Causes A Perforated Bowel?
