Background: Peritonitis is one of the most common infections, and an important problem that a surgeon has to face. Objectives: To evaluate the prognosis of patients with perforation peritonitis using Mannheim Peritonitis Index. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted from cases attending our institute in which diagnosis of peritonitis is established by operative findings or surgical interventions during management.
Results: 87 patients had MPI score of less than 21,70 patients had MPI score between 21 to 29 while 43 patients the MPI score was more than 29.There was no mortality in the patient’s with MPI score of less than<21. The mortality was 4.3% in patients with MPI scores between 21-29.The mortality was 67.4 % in the patients with MPI score more than 29.
Conclusion: MPI is accurate to be used with patients with peritonitis and should be considered reliable and simple reference for estimating their risk of death.
