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 ...

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 ...

Initial Non-operative Treatment Strategy Versus Appendectomy Treatment Strategy for Simple Appendicitis in Children

Initial non-operative treatment of acute simple appendicitis has recently been investigated in both the adult as the paediatric population. In the adult population, six Randomised Controlled Trial (RCTs) showed that an appendectomy could be avoided in 40-76% of the patients at the end of their follow-up period. Despite the fact ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase N/A

Nebulized Analgesia for Laparoscopic Appendectomy Trial

The laparoscopic approach to pediatric appendectomy is gaining in popularity and has been demonstrated to reduce complications and improve resource utilization. The procedure has a documented association with high postoperative pain intensity, and is associated with substantial pain (pain scores >4 for >60% of the time) in 33% of patients. ...

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 Trial to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Morinidazole in Patients With Appendicitis

Acute appendicitis is among the most common cause of acute abdominal pain. In patients with complicated acute appendicitis, postoperative, broad-spectrum antibiotics are always recommended. Metronidazole, a member of the nitroimidazole drug class, is included in the regimens recommended for improving anaerobic bacteria coverage. The sideeffects of metronidazole include a metallic ...

Phase

Optimal Care of Complicated Appendicitis

This is a single center, prospective study to compare early appendectomy vs. non-operative management of immunocompetent patients with complicated appendicitis, and then to compare interval appendectomy vs. no interval appendectomy in those managed with the initial non-operative approach. Patients who choose early appendectomy will have surgery within 24 hours of ...

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 ...
