using ultrasound to follow up the resolution of acute appendicitis

Phase N/A

A clinical trial sponsored by Mauro Podda for a research study for the treatment of Acute Appendicitis, Appendicitis Recurrent, Appendectomy, Antibiotic Therapy

On September the 15th, 2015, Italian surgeons, radiologists and pathologists with a special interest and expertise in the diagnosis and management of Acute Appendicitis (AA), met up under the auspices of the Italian Society of Hospital Surgeons (ACOI) in Oristano (Italy) to constitute the ACTUAA collaborative working group.

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 ...

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

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 ...

Point of Care Ultrasound for Evaluation of Suspected Appendicitis in the Emergency Department

BACKGROUND Increasing concerns have been raised over the past several years regarding the degree of radiation exposure in patients being evaluated for abdominal complaints. A deepening body of literature supports the use of ultrasound for the evaluation of appendicitis. In particular, ultrasound is being promoted as first line testing in ...

Domestic Surgical Robot Clinical Study

One surgeon perform these surgical trials using the robot "Micro Hand S". All of the patients were followed for 1 months, and pre- and postoperative changes in blood route test and hepatorenal function examination, surgery duration, hospital stay, total robotic setup time, total robotic operation time, intraoperative blood loss, total ...

Phase N/A

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

Randomized Control Trial: Two Different Antibiotics Versus One Antibiotic for Pediatric Perforated Appendicitis

The diagnosis of perforated appendicitis will be documented intraoperatively with photos of extraluminal fecal contents or visible holes on the appendix. Patients will be randomized to 121 in each arm. Postoperative antibiotic therapy option will be decided based on blinded sequence model. 30 day postoperative follow up visit or calls ...

Phase N/A

DIAgnostic iMaging or Observation in Early Equivocal appeNDicitis

For the study equivocal appendicitis is defined as clinical suspicion of appendicitis with Adult Appendicitis Score between 11 and 15. The estimated prevalence of appendicitis in such patients is around 50%. Diagnostic imaging is done using conditional computed tomography i.e. abdominal ultrasound first and computed tomography only after negative or ...
