Blue Light Therapy in Reducing Inflammation During Sepsis

Background and preliminary data: Our murine studies suggest that exposure to blue (480nm) light, by comparison to ambient white or amber (580nm) light, reduces the inflammatory response (i.e., cytokine concentration), risk of organ failure (i.e., kidney failure), and improves the clearance and control of the infectious focus (i.e., reduced abdominal ...

Phase N/A

(D)Elayed vs. (E)Arly (L)Aparoscopic (A)Ppendectom(Y)

This randomized controlled trial is designed to assess the effect of timing of surgery on surgical complications in patients undergoing appendectomy for acute appendicitis at a single academic teaching hospital in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Early appendectomy in patients diagnosed with acute appendicitis has been a mainstay of treatment. Timely intervention ...

Phase N/A

Wound Infiltration With Local Anesthetic Agent for Laparoscopic Appendectomy in Adult

Acute appendicitis is one of the most common acute abdomens that need surgical intervention. Laparoscopic surgery much decreases postoperative pain of wound, however, pain remains an important determinant of recovery after surgery. Intraoperative local anesthetic agent infiltrated locally into surgical wound to relieve postoperative pain is a feasible and safe ...


Technical Modifications of Appendicular Stump Closure During Laparoscopic Appendectomy

Acute appendicitis presents one of the most common surgical illnesses which affect approximately 7% of the western population. In the Czech Republic, 11664 patients were hospitalized and operated for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis (K35-K38) during 2016. It might seem that the procedure of appendectomy will be guided by a ...

Phase N/A

The Comparison of Outcomes of Antibiotic Drugs and Appendectomy (CODA) Trial

The Comparison of Outcomes of Antibiotic Drugs and Appendectomy (CODA) trial aims to test, if from a patient's perspective, the antibiotics strategy is "just as good as" surgery. The investigators believe that patients, clinicians, and the people who pay for healthcare (both patients and insurers) will find the antibiotics approach ...

Phase N/A

Free Text Prediction Algorithm for Appendicitis

Developing machine learning models that have a strong prediction power for diagnosis of appendicitis from physician entered free text input can improve diagnostic accuracy of doctors. It also offers the possibility of using prediction algorithms to improve routine clinical care. In the future, multiple machine learning models can be combined ...

Phase N/A

CT Carcinogenic Risk in Patients With Appendicitis

South Korea has a single-payer healthcare system, administered by National Health Insurance Service (NHIS). As healthcare providers in South Korea need to claim reimbursement to NHIS for the vast majority of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, the NHIS database enabled us to construct a large cohort who did or did not ...

Phase N/A

Acute Appendicitis: Active Observation With and Without Antibiotics

Recent long-term follow up results of antibiotic treatment of acute appendicitis in unselected populations indicate that approximately 70-80 % of patients respond to antibiotics, while the remaining 20-25% need an operation. Antibiotic treatment was associated with significantly fewer severe and non-severe complications compared to surgery. Therefore, antibiotic treatment can be ...
