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

Point of Care 3D Ultrasound for Various Applications: A Pilot Study

Summary Purpose and Objective: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of rapid acquisition of point of care 3D ultrasound in obtaining abdominal and/or pelvic images. The study will use a newly developed acquisition method and post-processing technique to create three dimensional image models of the abdomen ...

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

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

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

Appendectomy Versus Conservative Treatment for Uncomplicated Acute Appendicitis

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. The main ...

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

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

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 ...
