Evaluation of Local Anesthetic at Incision Site

This is a prospective randomized-controlled pilot study of 100 pediatric subjects, recruited through Phoenix Children's Hospital and Pediatric Surgeons of Phoenix, who will undergo a laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) for acute non-perforated appendicitis. The reviewer and subject will be blind to the treatment to help prevent bias. The subjects will be ...

Phase N/A

Minimally Invasive Surgery: Using Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES)

This is an observational study of pain and outcomes from patients undergoing transgastric NOTES removal of their appendix or gallbladder. Subjects who elect to have a transgastric NOTES removal of their appendix or gallbladder and agree to be in this study (through signature on the informed consent form) will be ...

Phase N/A

Minimally Invasive Surgery: Using Natural Orfices

This is an observational study of pain and outcomes from females undergoing transvaginal NOTES removal of their appendix or gallbladder. Female subjects who elect to have a transvaginal NOTES removal of their appendix or gallbladder and agree to be in this study (through signature on the informed consent form) will ...

Phase N/A

Point of Care 3D Ultrasound for Pediatric Appendicitis: a Pilot Study

Purpose and Objective: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of rapid acquisition of point of care 3D ultrasound for pediatric appendicitis. The study will use a newly developed acquisition method and post-processing technique to create three dimensional image models of the abdomen. Study activities and population ...

Phase N/A

Comparative Study of Microwave Radiometry and Ultrasonography for the Diagnosis of Acute Appendicitis

Patients diagnosed with acute appendicitis from the emergency department of Hippocration General Hospital and treated with appendectomy will be evaluated with microwave radiometry for changes in the temperature of the appendix before its removal. Subsequently, the results of microwave radiometry for the patients confirmed by the histopathology report to have ...

Finding Evidence to Treat Or Reassure in Appendicitis (FETOR)

Acute appendicitis is the most common surgical emergency in childhood. Despite access to current diagnostic modalities, diagnosis may be challenging since the child may have difficulty in articulating symptoms. Additionally there is a high frequency of atypical presentation and rapid progression. Delayed diagnosis in children is reported as being up ...

Phase N/A

A Retrospective Study of the Feasibility of Ambulatory Appendicectomy for Acute Appendicitis (Based on Data From the PMSI French National Hospital Information System) in the Adults Hospitalized Between December 2013 and December 2014

Acute appendicitis is a frequent surgical emergency, with an estimated incidence of about 80,000 cases a year (in France). It mainly affects young adults but is associated with a low complication rate and a short stay in hospital. Ambulatory treatment is an innovative type of care in which the patient ...

Phase N/A

Irrigation Versus Suction in Complicated Acute Appendicitis

Despite the available literature for and against the irrigation of the abdominal cavity in complicated acute appendicitis, in the current practice of this and other centres, the irrigation and no irrigation is made equally depending on the surgeon who performs the intervention. Those who systematically irrigate the abdominal cavity in ...

Phase N/A

NOTES Transvaginal Cholecystectomy and Appendectomy

Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) is considered by many leading expert surgeons to be the next step in MIS (Minimally Invasive Surgery). This is a rapidly evolving area of preclinical research and several groups worldwide are developing this surgical approach together with industry support. In this new surgical technique, ...

Phase N/A

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. Primary outcome A comparison of the incidence of Yersinia spp. (enterocolitica and/or pseudotuberculosis) infection diagnosed by PCR on rectal swabs ...
