Abstract

ABSTRACT:One hundred and thirty cases over a period of five years are included in this study. Duration ofthe disease, duration of perforation, age, sex and various surgical treatments are analysed. Prognosticfactors and causes of mortality and morbidity are discussed. Minimum surgical intervention ispreferred, as mortality is increased in extensive surgical procedure, in already sick and toxic patients.
