Appendectomy Versus Non-Operative Treatment For Acute Non-Perforated Appendicitis in Children

Background Acute appendicitis is the commonest surgical emergency in children. The lifetime risk of developing appendicitis is 7-8%, with a peak incidence in the teenage years.The associated financial burden of treating appendicitis is very large. For over 100 years, surgical removal of the appendix has been deemed necessary to effectively ...

Phase N/A

Comparing Proposed Algorithm and Current Practice in the Evaluation of Suspected Appendicitis

Acute appendicitis is one of the most common causes of acute abdominal pain requiring surgical intervention, with a lifetime risk of 8.6% for males and 6.7% for females. Historically, negative appendectomy rates of more than 20% were considered the norm. This is no longer acceptable in the current era, as ...

Phase N/A

Water And Saline Head-to-head In The Blinded Evaluation Study Trial

All patients, aged 6 and above, who present for an emergent or interval appendectomy to any one of the participating surgeons will potentially be enrolled in the study. Prior to surgery, the patient or the patient's guardian if a minor, will be informed of the study and consent (assent of ...

Phase N/A

Optimizing the Antibiotic Treatment of Uncomplicated Acute Appendicitis

Acute appendicitis is the most common cause of abdominal pain in emergency departments and appendectomy is the most common emergency abdominal surgery. The lifetime risk of acute appendicitis in males is 8.6% and 6.7% in females. In Finland according to Stakes data there were 6 377 appendectomies (3242 in males, ...
