Introduction of appendiceal CT: impact on negative appendectomy and appendiceal perforation rates. (1/531)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of appendiceal computed tomography (CT) availability on negative appendectomy and appendiceal perforation rates. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Appendiceal CT is 98% accurate. However, its impact on negative appendectomy and appendiceal perforation rates has not been reported. METHODS: The authors reviewed the medical records of 493 consecutive patients who underwent appendectomy between 1992 and 1995, 209 consecutive patients who underwent appendectomy in 1997 (59% of whom had appendiceal CT), and 206 patients who underwent appendiceal CT in 1997 without subsequent appendectomy. RESULTS: Before appendiceal CT, 98/493 patients (20%) taken to surgery had a normal appendix. After CT availability, 15/209 patients (7%) taken to surgery had a normal appendix; 7 patients did not have CT, 5 patients had surgery despite a negative CT, and 3 patients had a false-positive CT. Negative appendectomy rates were lowered overall (20% to 7%), in men (11% to 5%), in women (35% to 11%), in boys (10% to 5%), and in girls (18% to 12%). Appendiceal perforation rates dropped from 22% to 14% after CT availability. CT excluded appendicitis in 206 patients in 1997 who avoided appendectomy and identified alternative diagnoses in 105 of these patients (51%). CONCLUSION: The availability of appendiceal CT coincided with a drop in the negative appendectomy rate from 20% to 7% in all patients, and to only 3% in patients with a positive CT. Perforation rates decreased from 22% to 14%. Appendiceal CT can be advocated in nearly all female and many male patients.  (+info)

Need to measure outcome after discharge in surgical audit. (2/531)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the accuracy of outcome data on appendicectomy routinely collected as part of a surgical audit and to investigate outcome in the non-audited period after discharge. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of audit data recorded by the Medical Data Index (MDI) computer system for all patients undergoing emergency appendicectomy in one year; subsequent analysis of their hospital notes and notes held by their general practitioners for patients identified by a questionnaire who had consulted their general practitioner for a wound complication. SETTING: One district general hospital with four consultant general surgeons serving a population of 250,000. PATIENTS: 230 patients undergoing emergency appendicectomy during 1989. MAIN MEASURES: Comparison of postoperative complications recorded in hospital notes with those recorded by the MDI system and with those recorded by patients' general practitioners after discharge. RESULTS: Of the 230 patients, 29 (13%) had a postoperative complication recorded in their hospital notes, but only 14 (6%) patients had these recorded by the MDI system. 189 (82%) of the patients completed the outcome questionnaire after discharge. The number of wound infections as recorded by the MDI system, the hospital notes, and notes held by targeted patients' general practitioners were three (1%), eight (3%), and 18 (8%) respectively. None of 12 readmissions with complications identified by the hospital notes were identified by the MDI system. CONCLUSIONS: Accurate audit of postoperative complications must be extended to the period after discharge. Computerised audit systems must be able to relate readmissions to specific previous admissions.  (+info)

Fertility patterns after appendicectomy: historical cohort study. (3/531)

OBJECTIVE: To examine fertility patterns in women who had their appendix removed in childhood. DESIGN: Historical cohort study with computerised data and fertility data for this cohort and for an age matched cohort of women from the Swedish general population. The cohorts were followed to 1994. SETTING: General population. PARTICIPANTS: 9840 women who were under 15 years when they underwent appendicectomy between 1964 and 1983; 47 590 control women. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Diagnoses at discharge. Distributions of age at birth of first child among women with perforated and non-perforated appendix and women who underwent appendicectomy but were found to have a normal appendix compared with control women by using survival analysis methods. Parity distributions at the latest update of the registry were also examined. RESULTS: Women with a history of perforated appendix had a similar rate of first birth as the control women (adjusted hazard ratio 0.95; 95% confidence interval 0.88 to 1. 04) and had a similar distribution of parity at the end of follow up. Women who had had a normal appendix removed had an increased rate of first births (1.48; 1.42 to 1.54) and on average had their first child at an earlier age and reached a higher parity than control women. CONCLUSION: A history of perforated appendix in childhood does not seem to have long term negative consequences on female fertility. This may have important implications for the management of young women with suspected appendicitis as the liberal attitude to surgical explorations with a subsequently high rate of removal of a normal appendix is often justified by a perceived increased risk of infertility after perforation. Women whose appendix was found to be normal at appendicectomy in childhood seem to belong to a subgroup with a higher fertility than the general population.  (+info)

Conditional Length of Stay. (4/531)

OBJECTIVE: To develop and test a new outcome measure, Conditional Length of Stay (CLOS), to assess hospital performance when deaths are rare and complication data are not available. DATA SOURCES: The 1991 and 1992 MedisGroups National Comparative Data Base. STUDY DESIGN: We use engineering reliability theory traditionally applied to estimate mechanical failure rates to construct a CLOS measure. Specifically, we use the Hollander-Proschan statistic to test if LOS distributions display an "extended" pattern of decreasing hazards after a transition point, suggesting that "the longer a patient has stayed in the hospital, the longer a patient will likely stay in the hospital" versus an alternative possibility that "the longer a patient has stayed in the hospital, the faster a patient will likely be discharged from the hospital." DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: Abstracted records from 7,777 pediatric pneumonia cases and 3,413 pediatric appendectomy cases were available for analysis. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: For both conditions, the Hollander-Proschan statistic strongly displays an "extended" pattern of LOS by day 3 (p<.0001) associated with declining rates of discharge. This extended pattern coincides with increasing patient complication rates. Worse admission severity and chronic disease contribute to lower rates of discharge after day 3. CONCLUSIONS: Patient stays tend to become prolonged after complications. By studying CLOS, one can determine when the rate of hospital discharge begins to diminish--without the need to directly observe complications. Policymakers looking for an objective outcome measure may find that CLOS aids in the analysis of a hospital's management of complicated patients without requiring complication data, thereby facilitating analyses concerning the management of patients whose care has become complicated.  (+info)

Counting the uninsured using state-level hospitalization data. (5/531)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the appropriateness of using state-level data on uninsured hospitalizations to estimate the uninsured population. METHODS: The authors used 1992-1996 data on hospitalizations of newborns and of appendectomy and heart attack patients in Florida to estimate the number of people in the state without health insurance coverage. These conditions were selected because they usually require hospitalization and they are common across demographic categories. RESULTS: Adjusted for the gender and ethnic composition of the population, the percentages of uninsured hospitalizations for appendectomies and heart attacks produced estimates of the state's uninsured population 1.6 percentage points lower than those reported for 1996 in the US Census March Current Population Survey. CONCLUSION: Data reported by hospitals to state agencies can be used to monitor trends in health insurance coverage and provides an alternative data source for a state-level analysis of the uninsured population.  (+info)

Day-care laparoscopic appendectomies. (6/531)

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the safety of laparoscopic appendectomy in a day-care setting and to compare patients selected for laparoscopic versus open appendectomy. DESIGN: A retrospective, nonrandomized study. SETTING: A community hospital in a small town in British Columbia. PATIENTS: Ninety-four consecutive patients with a clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis. INTERVENTIONS: Each patient underwent laparoscopic or open appendectomy as selected by the operating surgeon. OUTCOME MEASURES: Duration of operation and of hospital stay, morbidity and mortality. RESULTS: The average operating time was 32 minutes for open appendectomy and 36 minutes for laparoscopic appendectomy. Two (4%) of the 52 patients who had a laparoscopic appendectomy had significant complications; 1 of them required reoperation for intra-abdominal abscess. Thirty-nine (75%) of the laparoscopic appendectomies were done as day-care procedures. The average length of stay for the remaining patients was 2.1 days. The overall complication rate for patients who underwent open appendectomy was 20%. The average length of stay for these patients was 3.2 days; no patient was discharged within 24 hours. CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic appendectomy can be safely performed as a day-care procedure, even for selected patients with gangrenous or perforated appendices. Patients typically selected for open appendectomy include children and those with more advanced infection.  (+info)

Hematuria: an unusual presentation for mucocele of the appendix. Case report and review of the literature. (7/531)

Mucocele of the appendix is a nonspecific term that is used to describe an appendix abnormally distended with mucus. This may be the result of either neoplastic or non-neopleastic causes and may present like most appendiceal pathology with either mild abdominal pain or life-threatening peritonitis. Urologic manifestations of mucocele of the appendix have rarely been reported. Laparoscopy can be used as a diagnostic tool in equivocal cases. Conversion to laparotomy may be indicated if there is a special concern for the ability to remove the appendix intact or if more extensive resection is warranted, as in malignancy. We here report our experience with a woman presenting with hematuria whose ultimate diagnosis was mucocele of the appendix, and we review the appropriate literature. This case highlights the mucocele as a consideration in the differential diagnosis of appendiceal pathology and serves to remind the surgeon of the importance for careful intact removal of the diseased appendix.  (+info)

Carcinoid of the appendix during laparoscopic cholecystectomy: unexpected benefits. (8/531)

Carcinoid tumors of the midgut arise from the distal duodenum, jejunum, ileum, appendix, ascending and right transverse colon. The appendix and terminal ileum are the most common location. The majority of carcinoid tumors originate from neuroendocrine cells along the gastrointestinal tract, but they are also found in the lung, ovary, and biliary tracts. We report the first case of elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy in which we found a suspicious lesion at the tip of the appendix and proceeded to perform a laparoscopic appendectomy. The lesion revealed a carcinoid tumor of the appendix.  (+info)

Background: Perforated appendicitis is associated with a significant risk of postoperative abdominal and wound infection. Only a few controversial studies evaluate the role of laparoscopy in perforated appendicitis. The significance of conversion from laparoscopy to open appendectomy for perforated appendicitis is not well defined. Statistical analysis was performed using Students t-test. Methods: Data on 52 patients with perforated appendicitis were prospectively collected and retrospectively reviewed. Among these patients, 18 had laparoscopic appendectomies (LA); 24 had open appendectomies (OA); and 10 had converted appendectomies (CA). The indications for either method were based on the attending surgeonss philosophy. Laparoscopic appendectomy was performed using a retrograde stapler technique. Operative time, hospital stay, ability to tolerate a liquid diet, and postoperative infectious complications were documented. Results: No statistically significant difference in the operative time in minutes
Olga La Manna, MD, Yves Bendavid, MD, FRCSC, FACS, MSc, Pierre Drolet, MD, Madeleine Poirier, MD, Margaret Henri, MD, Jean-Francois Latulipe, MD, Michel Morin, MD. Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital, affiliated with University of Montreal. BACKGROUD: Laparoscopic appendectomy is recognized as an efficient and safe technique for both uncomplicated and complicated appendicitis. Recent studies have shown an equivalent result between open appendectomy and laparoscopic appendectomy for intra-abdominal abscess. Superior outcomes have been demonstrated regarding surgical site infection, length of stay, hospital costs and return to normal activity. Up to 25% of appendicitis is gangrenous, perforated or abscessed at the time of surgery. Some of the patients with complicated appendicitis progress better than other after surgery and might not require long course of IV antibiotics and prolonged hospital stay. An early discharge of selected patients will minimize hospital costs while reducing the risk of medical ...
Prior to CT the negative appendectomy rate was 20% because there was no way to be sure whether appendicitis was present or not in most patients without surgery. Because CT is very accurate in imaging the appendix and because CT is very good at finding other conditions which mimic appendicitis, the negative appendectomy rate following CT has fallen dramatically. Fewer people are having to undergo appendectomy because CT can find the normal appendix and can frequently determine what is wrong prior to surgery, said James T. Rhea, MD, lead author of the study at MGH and who is now at San Francisco General Hospital in California ...

However, findings of the relationship between an appendectomy and RA remain inconsistent. Furthermore, all such studies were conducted in Western societies, and relevant studies on the relationship between an appendectomy and RA in Asian countries are still lacking. In this study, we investigated the relationship between an appendectomy and the subsequent risk of RA using a population-based dataset.

We included 4,294 subjects who underwent an appendectomy in the study cohort and 12,882 matched subjects in the ...
Although criticized for technical difficulty and cost , the 3 ports "in" technique has been widely practiced and remains the gold standard, among techniques of laparoscopic appendectomy, due to its significant advantages [3]. However, it needs a complete surgical laparoscopy set in addition to a trained surgeon. Its clear that advantages of laparoscopic appendectomy over open approach include decreased pain, fewer postoperative complications, and decreased length of hospitalization, improved intra-abdominal visualization, and better cosmetic results. Studies support that laparoscopic procedures reduce the inflammatory cascade by reducing expression of pro inflammatory cytokines. Those cytokines can be responsible of an increase of systemic inflammatory response and perioperative morbidity and mortality. Three laparoscopic ports are traditionally required to complete a laparoscopic appendectomy. In the minimally invasive surgery area, pediatric surgeons continue to be concerned with alternative ...
Is there anyone out there who preferentially performs open appendectomies rather than laparoscopic? I know, theres that prospective randomized trial from Archives of surgery (1997) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?itool=abstractplus&db=pubmed&cmd=Retrieve&dopt=abstractplus&list_uids=9230853 that showed no benefit to laparoscopic versus open techniques. Moreover, it determined that OR time was longer and expenses higher with the laparoscopic approach. But lets be honest. 1997 was ten years ago. This was data accumulated by surgeons who were just getting comfortable with the technique. As a recent graduate of residency, I learned from talented laparoscopic surgeons, rather than making things up on the fly.

A 5-year-old boy was admitted to a rural New Zealand hospital with a 10-day history of abdominal pain. The pain was localised to the right iliac fossa (RIF) with guarding and examination revealed a palpable mass in the RIF. He had previously presented with a 1-day history of severe abdominal pain and fever and had been discharged the following day with a diagnosis of gastroenteritis. He was transferred to the tertiary hospital and a diagnosis was made on ultrasound scan of appendiceal mass with abscess. His condition was stable. He was commenced on conservative management and supportive care with intravenous antibiotics followed by a 2-week course of oral antibiotics. He responded well to conservative management and was scheduled for appendectomy after an interval of 6-8 weeks. You wonder whether it is necessary, now he is well, for him to have an appendectomy. ...
Results 2980 patients with UC were initially included. 111 (4.4%) patients with UC had an appendectomy; of which 63 were performed prior to UC diagnosis and 48 after diagnosis. In multivariable analysis, appendectomy performed at any time was an independent risk factor for colectomy (OR 1.9, 95% CI 1.1 to 3.1), with appendectomy performed after UC diagnosis most strongly associated with colectomy (OR 2.2, 95% CI 1.1 to 4.5). An updated meta-analysis showed appendectomy performed either prior to or after UC diagnosis had no effect on colectomy rates. ...

Although the study was not designed to establish a link between the increased use of imaging studies and the falling rate of negative appendectomy, there are many papers supporting this conclusion such as one from Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston which showed a fall in the negative appendectomy rate from 23% to 1.7% over and 18-year period during which the rate of CT scan use went from 1% to 97.5%. Surgeons from Cornell reported similar results with the rate of CT scanning for appendicitis rising from 32% to 95% and the negative appendectomy rate falling from 16% to 7.65% from the late 1990s to the mid-part of the 21st century ...
Your appendix is a small tube-like structure that extends off your large intestine. While the appendix does not have a known function, if it becomes inflamed or infected the result is appendicitis. Anyone can get appendicitis. Appendicitis happens when the appendix becomes infected, inflamed, or blocked. A piece of stool or ingested material can block the appendix. In some cases of appendicitis, the cause is not known. Appendicitis is an emergency medical condition and needs immediate treatment.. Appendix surgery is typically performed laparoscopically - this is called a laparoscopic appendectomy. This surgery is performed through a few small incisions, and results in less trauma and therefore quicker healing times.. Our surgeons are trained and experienced in the testing and surgical care you may need, and they understand how to help you overcome your anxiety and feel more at ease with the tests and treatments for appendicitis. You can count on our doctors expertise with appendectomies, and ...

After talking for two days at the hospital about my appendectomy, my doctor friend kindly pulls me aside and whispers to me, "Michelle, we call it an appendicectomy here in South Africa." Really? And this is the first that anyone cares to mention it to me?. Yes. I lost my appendix on Saturday, January 26, 2013.. Lost maybe is not the best word for it. Rather - excised, removed, expunged, dismembered, lopped…. I am left now with a 2 inch incision on my right lower abdomen that hurts way more than any 2 inches should be allowed to hurt!. I just had to pause typing to cough, and I thought my liver was going to escape through the newest orifice with each cough!! So much pain!. But with pain comes time. Time to rest. Time to sleep.

Laparoscopic Appendectomy. By Paolo Ialongo, Giuseppe Carbotta and Antonio Prestera. Appendectomy represents a fundamental step in the training course of a surgeon in so much that for several decades it has been the first surgical operation assigned to a training surgeon. Yet, laparoscopic appendectomy has not spread with the same characteristics as the operation of cholecystectomy for which laparoscopy has rapidly become the gold standard. We can moreover note that nowadays, in spite of a certain initial distrust, the laparoscopic methodology is fully employed in the treatment of acute appendicitis, even though the use of such technique is controversial in cases of acute complicated appendicitis..

The Doctors Medical Library. Health and Healing Information. Physician, Health care help, An appendectomy is removal by surgery of the appendix, the small worm-like appendage of the colon (the large bowel). An appendectomy is performed because of probable appendicitis, inflammation of the wall of the appendix generally associated with infection. Appendicitis usually is suspected because of the medical history and physical examination. The pain of developing appendicitis is at first diffuse and poorly localized but as the inflammation extends through the appendix to its outer covering and then to the lining of the abdomen, the pain changes and becomes localized to one small area between the front of the right hip bone and the belly button. The exact point is named after Dr. Charles McBurney - McBurneys point. If the appendix ruptures and infection spreads throughout the abdomen producing peritonitis, the pain becomes diffuse again as the entire lining of the abdomen becomes inflamed. Ultrasound and
For more than 100 years, the standard treatment for appendicitis has been surgery. Now a large Finnish study provides the best evidence to date that most patients can be treated with antibiotics alone. How did the usual treatment of doing an appendectomy (appendix removal) arise? In 1886 Dr. Reginald Fitz, while investigating pelvic infections (which resulted in many deaths in those days), decided that an inflamed appendix progresses from a mild inflammation, to gangrene, then perforation, which would result in pelvic abscess. This reason for an appendectomy (that it would prevent serious infection) became established in medical thought and still guides appendicitis management today. But nowadays we have antibiotics! And the researchers noted that some cases resolved on their own without any treatment.. And instead of the prevailing view for many years that the appendix is a "vestigial organ with no purpose", it turns out that the appendix has a great reason for existence. It seems to provide a ...
On 11 September 1942, Pharmacists Mate First Class (PhM1/c) Wheeler B. Lipes agonized over the most difficult decision of his life. He had just diagnosed his shipmate, Seaman First Class Darrel D. Rector, with acute appendicitis. With their submarine Seadragon (SS-194) cruising in enemy waters, there was no way to get Rector to port in time. World War II submarines always carried a well trained corpsman, but their small, 55-man complement did not rate a doctor. Lipes could attempt an appendectomy, but the operation might kill his shipmate.. After joining the Navy in 1936, Lipes had received his medical training in the Navy hospital course in San Diego and had served at the Naval Hospital in Philadelphia and at the Naval Hospital in Canacao near Manila before entering the submarine service in 1941. Classified as an electro-cardiographer, he had assisted Navy doctors during many operations, including several appendectomies.. On 8 September 1942, Seadragon was several days and thousands of miles ...
Of the patients, 54 were women and 78 men.. The incidence of wrong diagnosis in female patients was high, occurring in 26%, and a low conversion rate of 6%.. In contrast, the team observed in the laparoscopic male subgroup that these rates showed a reverse relationship.. The researchers noted that morbidity did not differ between female and male patients or between the 2 arms of the male group.. Laparoscopic appendectomy took longer to perform without affecting significantly the needs for postoperative analgesia.. The research team found that the duration of hospital stay, and the time to return to normal activities when compared with open appendectomy in men.. Dr George Tzovaras team concluded, Laparoscopic appendectomy is at least as safe as the open procedure in the male population, although it does not appear to offer any obvious advantage over the open procedure. The diagnostic advantage that laparoscopy offers to fertile women makes the procedure attractive for this population. ...
Editors Note: In this exclusive Swimming World release, Jeff Farrell discusses the week leading up to the 1960 Olympic Trials, in which he endured an emergency appendectomy just days before he was to race multiple events at the 1960 Olympic Trials. In this first part of the three-part series, Farrell details the emotions behind the realization that he would not be at peak form for the Trials.. When I woke up on July 27, 1960, I was in a bed in Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. My swimming coach, Bob Kiphuth, the legendary Yale and Olympic coach, was sitting across the room. As I came out of my anesthetic daze, the fuzzy details of the previous nights events began to come back: waking up in my motel room about 4:00 a.m. with severe abdominal pains and passing out. My roommates called Bob, and we raced to the hospital. The emergency room doctor said I had appendicitis and I would need an immediate appendectomy. I asked the surgeon how long it would be before I could swim, and he replied, "About ...

An appendectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the appendix, a small organ located at the junction of the small intestine and colon. The appendix, once thought to be only vestigial, is now known to help lubricate the colon, and assist the immune system. Appendectomies are, therefore, performed only when necessary.

Acute appendicitis is a pathology requiring emergent surgical intervention (1). However, the utilization of LA in this setting remains to be controversial (7). Currently, there is no consensus on the advantages and disadvantages of the laparoscopic technique over the open technique. While many retrospective and prospective studies reported less pain and shorter hospitalization and return to normal activities with LA, there are studies contradicting these findings and not supporting these benefits (8, 9).. Laparoscopic appendectomy was reported to be superior to OA in terms of diagnostic benefits, especially in young women (2, 3). Many surgeons argue that LA is not superior to OA, especially in men, and do not prefer LA. In a prospective randomized study, Tzovaros et al. (10) did not detect any advantage of LA in male patients along with a longer operative time. Nevertheless, LA has been shown to be superior in morbidly obese patients (4). This advantage is especially evident in the recovery ...
A 42-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic appendectomy. She was found to have a gangrenous appendix. She was treated with a 7d course of antibiotics postoperatively. At the end of the 7 days, she was afebrile with a normal white count and was discharged to home. Three days later she represented with fever and leukocytosis. A pelvic mass was felt on rectovaginal examination and a well-developed pelvic abscess (see appendicitis discussion) was seen on CT scan. The inflammatory rind is well defined (highlight). The abscess was drained transvaginally with ultrasound guidance and a pigtail catheter was left in place for four days, at which time the drainage was minimal. Repeat CT scan at that time showed the cavity to be collapsed. The patient was afebrile with a normal WBC count when discharged. The patient was asymptomatic on follow-up.

There is no evidence that patients with either disease, who usually present from home, have resistant bacteria, and postoperative complications, especially infections, are not common with either disease. There is no evidence that patients do better with "big gun" antibiotics. In fact, most of the evidence that prophylactic antibiotics are even needed in these two operations comes from the pre-laparoscopic era. Wound infections are extremely uncommon with laparoscopic appendectomies and cholecystectomies. This is probably due to the fact that the wounds are small and in most cases, the specimen is removed in a plastic bag so the infected organ does not touch the subcutaneous tissue ...

In general, a systolic blood pressure (SBP) less than 100 mm Hg or a mean arterial pressure (MAP) less than 65 mm Hg is considered hypotensive. That said, hypotension is best thought of as a decreased blood pressure rather than a low blood pressure-the difference between the patients current and baseline blood pressures is the most critical factor. For example, a blood pressure measurement of 95/43 mm Hg after an uncomplicated laparoscopic appendectomy in an otherwise healthy 25-year-old female whose SBP is normally no greater than 105 mm Hg is probably not hypotension. On the other hand, a blood pressure of 125/64 mm Hg after an uncomplicated laparoscopic appendectomy in a 65-year-old, homeless male who has had many years of untreated kidney disease and whose preoperative blood pressure was 212/103 mm Hg probably is hypotension. While the blood pressure reading of 125/64 mm Hg is "normal" in the conventional sense, the male patients tissues and peripheral vasculature have probably compensated ...

Acute appendicitis (AA), a common intra-abdominal surgical pathology, requires a comprehensive understanding of its presentation, evaluation, diagnosis, and overall operative management. In the United States, AA occurs in approximately 7% of the population, with a mortality of 0.2-0.8%.The morbidity and mortality are related to the presenting stage of disease and increases in cases of perforation.. Briefly, the pathophysiology and progressive timeline of AA is attributed to luminal obstruction causing distension, ineffective venous and lymphatic drainage, bacterial invasion, and, finally, perforation with associated leakage of contents into the peritoneal cavity.. The presentation, evaluation, and diagnosis of AA are notoriously inconsistent, with a multitude of factors attributing to these discrepancies. The classic history consists of anorexia and periumbilical pain, followed by nausea, right lower quadrant (RLQ) pain, and vomiting, as well as leukocytosis. History and physical examination ...

On the topic of medical errors mentioned in the post: I attended a lecture on this during my internal medicine rotation during which we were quoted all of these stats about how physicians are killing their patients. I was listening up to the point where he used appendectomies as an example. The physician lecturer quoted some number of appendectomies that were done in error. But I actually gave a lecture on this myself during surgery. The fact is that there is a concept of number needed to treat which applies to most medical procedures and regimens. If a surgeon is not removing a minimum 2% healthy appendices, with up to 8% still being within the NNT, that surgeon is actually removing TOO FEW appendices. But this physician was including these as surgeries done in error. After that, my confidence is his critical thinking abilities plummeted and I began wondering what agenda he was trying to push, and whether all of his stats on physician errors ignored the concept of NNT to inflate his ...

MSAs with higher spending on one procedure generally had higher spending on the other two procedures. High- or low-spending MSAs were not concentrated in particular regions of the nation.. The price of the initial hospital inpatient admission accounted for 91 percent or more of the difference in episode spending between MSAs in the lowest- and highest-spending quintiles. The price of the initial admission was the largest contributor to the difference for two reasons. First, it represented the ...

Thank you for contacting us here at Ask The Expert.. Im sorry to hear about the pain you are experiencing. While it is uncommon for pain from abdominal surgery such as you have had to cause hip and knee pain there may be some referred pain, this is where pain is experienced away from an area that is inflamed or swollen, that is possibly contributing.. Referred pain from the appendix region usually is experienced in the diaphragm, mid- section of the body, and upper abdominal areas, however, if some nerves in the groin area have become affected due to the surgery there is a slight possibility that this might be contributing to the hip and knee discomfort you feel. Because you are also experiencing pain in other joints alongside the hip and knee pain in this instance it is possibly more suggestive of a generalised inflammatory reaction within the body, this can occur sometimes after complex surgery. You do not mention if you are taking any medications, and if that is the case there is also the ...

The cost of surgical procedures is always a concern for patients and health care providers. This study compares, the total cost of open appendectomy (OA) with LA in children who required an appendectomy for acute appendicitis. Suitable and safe cost-effective techniques were also explored to reduce the cost of these procedures. Methods: The medical records of all the children (ranging between 0 and 12 years) at Sultan Qaboos University Hospital in Oman, who required OA or LA from June 2009 to July 2011, were reviewed. Results: LA were performed in 75 patients while OA were done in 34. Patients from the OA and ...

Introduction: Although both conditions are very common, concomitance of acute calculous cholecystitis with perforated acute has never been reported. In this paper, we present a case of acute calculous cholecystitis with perforated acute appendicitis. Case Report: A 66-year-old female presented with a four-day history of right side abdominal pain associated with nausea, pyrexic and tachycardia (pulse rate 105 beats per minute). An ultrasound of her abdomen and pelvis revealed an inflamed, thick-walled gallbladder with evidence of multiple small gallstones. Her appendix could not be visualized. A diagnostic +/- therapeutic laparoscopy was performed, which revealed an inflamed gallbladder and fluid collection in right iliac fossa with foul smelling. A combined laparoscopic cholecystectomy with open appendectomy was performed. Intraoperatively perforated appendix was found. Postoperative follow-up was uneventful and the patient was free of complaint two weeks later. Conclusion: While most of the abdominal

Mucocele of the appendix is a rare complication associated with the vermiform appendix, which mimics or complicates appendicitis. Gangrene of the Appendiceal mucocele, following torsion, is a very rare occurrence. It requires surgical excision and, if ruptured, can lead to fatal Pseudomyxoma peritonei. We report a case of a middle aged male patient, who presented with acute appendicitis, and on surgical exploration, was found to have a large, gangrenous mucocele of the appendix, which had undergone torsion ...
Appendicitis and groin hernias are frequent pathologies in acute abdominal pain. The combination of the two in De Garengeot or Amyand hernias is rare. Amyand hernias consist of an appendix located in an inguinal hernia (direct or indirect) (0.19% to 1.7% of all hernias) [2] and are more predominant in men (considering inguinal hernias are 12 times more frequent in men [3]). Children are also more prone (,3 times more frequent) due to the patency of the processus vaginalis [4]. An appendicitis located in an inguinal hernia is even rarer and occurs in only 0.07-0.13% of all hernias [2]. De Garengeot hernia is a femoral hernia with an appendix inside the sac and since the femoral canal is smaller, is a more difficult problem ...
Darshak Shah, MD, MBBS, Ashish Padnani, MD, MBBS, Gaurav Sharma, MD, MBBS, Litong Du, MD, Saurabh Sharma, MD, MBBS. New York Hospital Queens, New York.. Background:. Appendiceal Mucocele is a very rare disease and found in only 0.3-0.4% appendectomies. It is characterized by mucoid accumulation in theappendix lumen and can present with diverse clinical features or just as an asymptomatic mass. It can be distinguished based on pathology as simple appendiceal mucocele, mucocele with epithelial hyperplasia, cystadenoma and cystadenocarcinoma. the last two are classified as neoplastic forms ...
A mucocele of the appendix is a descriptive term that refers to dilation of a lumen because of accumulation of a large amount of mucin. It is a rare lesion in all resected appendiceal tumors. Schistosomiasis of the appendix is also a rare lesion and is observed in 0.4% of all appendectomies performed [7]. Simultaneous giant mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix and intestinal schistosomiasis is extremely rare. To our knowledge, this is the first case ever to be reported in the world.. The characteristic pathological tissue response of appendiceal schistosomiasis is believed to be a granulomatous inflammatory reaction to the schistosomal ova. There is formation of epithelioid cell granulomas, predominantly in the submucosa and serosa, which ultimately undergo fibrosis. The final pathologic examination of the present case revealed calcified Schistosome eggs within the mucosa, submucosa of the appendix, small intestine, colon, and lymph nodes. Considering that mucoceles are caused by mucus ...
INTRODUCTION Amyands hernia is a rare finding of the appendix inside an inguinal hernia sac with classically estimated incidence of 1%. Most cases are found intra-operatively during right-sided inguinal hernia repair. PRESENTATION OF CASE We are reporting a very rare case of left-sided Amyands hernia. An 81 year-old man with long standing left inguinal hernia was referred to our surgical assessment unit with tender irreducible left inguinal hernia. He was vitally stable with no clinical signs of intestinal obstruction. A diagnosis of irreducible left inguinal hernia without obstruction was made. Exploration of the hernia sac revealed the presence of non-inflamed appendix, caecum and terminal ileum. The contents were reduced and a mesh repair was performed with satisfactorily outcome. DISCUSSION The surgical management of Amyands hernia involves appendectomy of inflamed appendix through the inguinal incision together with hernia repair. Prophylactic appendectomy is not recommended by most authors
