Explanations for Negative Laparoscopic Appendectomies and Normal Laparoscopies

Aim The aim of the study is to investigate which infectious diseases might mimic the symptoms of acute appendicitis to a degree that cause a diagnostic laparoscopy or laparoscopic appendectomy.

Phase N/A

Multi-institutional Trial of Non-operative Management of Appendicitis

Several randomized controlled trials comparing appendectomy to antibiotics alone in adults with acute appendicitis have been reported from non-U.S. countries. These studies reveal that non-operative management of appendicitis is a safe treatment for appendicitis and is associated with a significantly lower risk of complications than appendectomy. We have recently completed ...

The investigators believe that patients, clinicians, and the people who pay for healthcare (both patients and insurers) will find the antibiotics approach ...
