Complicated Intra-Abdominal Infections overview

Complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAIs) are infections that affect the peritoneal cavity or its organs and require surgical intervention or drainage to achieve source control. cIAIs are usually caused by a disruption of the gastrointestinal tract that allows the entry of normal or pathogenic microorganisms into the sterile peritoneal space. cIAIs are associated with high morbidity and mortality, especially in patients with severe illness, delayed diagnosis, inadequate source control, or inappropriate antimicrobial therapy. The management of cIAIs involves a multidisciplinary approach that includes early recognition, prompt hemodynamic resuscitation, effective source control, and rational antimicrobial therapy. The choice of antimicrobial agents should be based on the likely pathogens, the severity of infection, the risk factors for resistant organisms, and the local epidemiology. Empirical therapy should be started as soon as possible and tailored according to the culture results and the clinical response.
