A multilocular tumor with mucin secreting epithelium. They are most often found in the ovary, but are also found in the pancreas, appendix, and rarely, retroperitoneal and in the urinary bladder. They are considered to have low-grade malignant potential.
A usually small, slow-growing neoplasm composed of islands of rounded, oxyphilic, or spindle-shaped cells of medium size, with moderately small vesicular nuclei, and covered by intact mucosa with a yellow cut surface. The tumor can occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract (and in the lungs and other sites); approximately 90% arise in the appendix. It is now established that these tumors are of neuroendocrine origin and derive from a primitive stem cell. (From Stedman, 25th ed & Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1182)

Extrathymic derivation of gut lymphocytes in parabiotic mice. (1/269)

In adult mice, c-kit+ stem cells have recently been found in their liver, intestine and appendix, where extrathymic T cells are generated. A major population of such thymus-independent subsets among intraepithelial lymphocytes is T-cell receptor (TCR)gamma delta+ CD4- CD8alpha alpha+(beta-) cells, but the origins of other lymphocyte subsets are still controversial. In this study, we examined what type of lymphocyte subsets were produced in situ by such stem cells in the small intestine, large intestine and appendix. To investigate this subject, we used parabiotic B6.Ly5.1 and B5.Ly5. 2 mice which shared the same circulation by day 3. The origin of lymphocytes was identified by anti-Ly5.1 and anti-Ly5.2 monoclonal antibodies in conjunction with immunofluorescence tests. Lymphocytes in Peyer's patches and lamina propria lymphocytes (especially B cells and CD4+ T cells) in the small intestine became a half-and-half mixture of Ly5.1+ and Ly5.2+ cells in each individual of parabiotic pairs of mice by day 14. However, the mixture was low in CD8alpha alpha+, CD8alpha beta+ and gamma delta T cells in the small and large intestines and in CD3+ CD8+ B220+ cells in the appendix. These cells might be of the in situ origin. When one individual of a pair was irradiated before parabiosis, the mixture of partner cells was accelerated. However, a low-mixture group always continued to show a lower mixture pattern than did a high-mixture group. The present results suggest that extrathymic T cells in the digestive tract may arise from their own pre-existing precursor cells and remain longer at the corresponding sites.  (+info)

Enrichment of c-kit+ Lin- haemopoietic progenitor cells that commit themselves to extrathymic T cells in in vitro culture of appendix mononuclear cells. (2/269)

The appendix as well as the small intestine have recently been found to carry c-kit+ stem cells which give rise to extrathymic T cells. In this study, the properties of c-kit+ stem cells in the appendix of mice were further characterized. When appendix mononuclear cells (MNC) were cultured in the presence of stem cell factor, interleukin-3, interleukin-6 and erythropoietin on a methylcellulose culture plate, the population of c-kitdull Lin- and that of c-kithi Lin- cells expanded. Morphological study revealed that these c-kithi Lin- cells were basophilic granular cells (possibly mast cells). Both populations of cultured appendix MNC were then injected into severe combined immunodeficient mice or cultured with Tst-4 thymic stroma cells. These in vivo and in vitro studies demonstrated that c-kitdull Lin- cells were oligopotent haemopoietic progenitor cells which gave rise to extrathymic T cells, while c-kithi Lin- cells lacked haemopoietic progenitor cell activity. In contrast to c-kit+ stem cells in the bone marrow, those in the appendix did not give rise to myeloid cells and conventional thymic T cells under any of the conditions tested. The present results suggest that the appendix primarily comprises c-kit+ cells which give rise to basophilic granular cells and extrathymic T cells and that such c-kit+ cells have the ability to replicate themselves in culture in vitro.  (+info)

Hematuria: an unusual presentation for mucocele of the appendix. Case report and review of the literature. (3/269)

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. (4/269)

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)

Characterization of a novel transcript of prostaglandin endoperoxide H synthase 1 with a tissue-specific profile of expression. (5/269)

The enzyme prostaglandin endoperoxide H synthase (PGHS) has a pivotal role in the prostanoid biosynthetic pathway because it catalyses the formation of prostaglandin H(2) (PGH(2)), the common precursor of prostanoids. Two PGHS isoforms have been reported, PGHS-1 and PGHS-2, which have 61% identity (at the amino acid level) and 73% similarity (at the nucleotide level) between the two human enzymes. Transcription of the PGHS-1 gene leads to the formation of two transcripts (2.8 and 5.1 kb); two transcripts of 2.8 and 4.5 kb are produced from the PGHS-2 gene. By Northern blot analysis with the entire coding region of human PGHS-1, 2.8 and 5.1 kb transcripts as well as a novel 4.5 kb transcript were detected in the human megakaryoblastic cell line MEG-01. We designed a strategy to characterize the 4.5 kb PGHS transcript. Probes specific for each PGHS-1 and PGHS-2 were designed on the basis of the 3' untranslated region (3' UTR), where no similarity is present. The 4.5 kb transcript was detected only with the PGHS-1-specific 3' UTR probes and not with the PGHS-2-specific 3' UTR probe. To investigate the origin of the 4.5 kb PGHS-1 transcript, the remaining 947 bp of the 5.1 kb PGHS-1 transcript was generated by 3' rapid amplification of cDNA ends (3' RACE) and sequenced. A non-canonical polyadenylation signal (AAGAAA) located upstream of a potential cleavage site (CA) was found and could generate the 4.5 kb PGHS-1 transcript. Analysis of the sequence also produced several possible G/U-rich elements downstream of the potential cleavage site. An RNA dot-blot with 50 different human tissues was probed with the 4.5 and 5.1 kb PGHS-1-specific probes. A signal for the 4.5 kb PGHS-1 transcript was detected in the bladder and appendix. Signals of lower intensity were detected in the colon, bone marrow, small intestine, uterus, prostate, peripheral leucocyte, lymph node and stomach. In conclusion, our results suggest that the cell line MEG-01, the bladder and the appendix contain a new PGHS-1 transcript of 4.5 kb that can be produced from the PGHS-1 gene and we provide a better strategy for distinguishing PGHS-1 transcripts from PGHS-2.  (+info)

ICBP90, a novel human CCAAT binding protein, involved in the regulation of topoisomerase IIalpha expression. (6/269)

The one-hybrid system with an inverted CCAAT box as the DNA target sequence was used to identify proteins acting on key DNA sequences of the promoter of the topoisomerase IIalpha gene. Screening of cDNA libraries from the leukemia Jurkat cell line and from the adult human thymus resulted in the isolation of a novel protein of 793 amino acids (89,758 Da). This protein has in vitro CCAAT binding properties and has been called ICBP90. Adult thymus, fetal thymus, fetal liver, and bone marrow, known as active tissues in terms of cell proliferation, are the tissues richest in ICBP90 mRNA. In contrast, highly differentiated tissues and cells such as the central nervous system and peripheral leukocytes are free of ICBP90 mRNA. Western blotting experiments showed a simultaneous expression of topoisomerase IIalpha and ICBP90 in proliferating human lung fibroblasts. Simultaneous expression of both proteins has also been observed in HeLa cells, but in both proliferating and confluent cells. Overexpression of ICBP90 in COS-1-transfected cells induced an enhanced expression of endogenous topoisomerase IIalpha. Immunohistochemistry experiments showed that topoisomerase IIalpha and ICBP90 were coexpressed in proliferating areas of paraffin-embedded human appendix tissues and in high-grade breast carcinoma tissues. We have identified ICBP90, which is a novel CCAAT binding protein, and our results suggest that it may be involved in topoisomerase IIalpha expression. ICBP90 may also be useful as a new proliferation marker for cancer tissues.  (+info)

Assessment of the prevalence of vCJD through testing tonsils and appendices for abnormal prion protein. (7/269)

The objective of this study was to determine the age group or groups which will provide the most information on the potential size of the vCJD epidemic in Great Britain via the sampling of tonsil and appendix material to detect the presence of abnormal prion protein (PrP(Sc)). A subsidiary aim was to determine the degree to which such an anonymous age-stratified testing programme will reduce current uncertainties in the size of the epidemic in future years. A cohort- and time-stratified model was used to generate epidemic scenarios consistent with the observed vCJD case incidence. These scenarios, together with data on the age distribution of tonsillectomies and appendectomies, were used to evaluate the optimal age group and calendar time for undertaking testing and to calculate the range of epidemic sizes consistent with different outcomes. The analyses suggested that the optimal five-year age group to test is 25-29 years, although a random sample of appendix tissue from all age groups is nearly as informative. A random sample of tonsil tissue from all age groups is less informative, but the information content is improved if sampling is restricted to tissues removed from those over ten years of age. Based on the assumption that the test is able to detect infection in the last 75% of the incubation period, zero detected infections in an initial random sample of 1000 tissues would suggest that the epidemic will be less than 870,000 cases. If infections are detected, then the model prediction suggests that both relatively small epidemics (800+ cases if one is detected or 8300+ if two are detected) and larger epidemics (21,000+ cases if three or more are detected) are possible. It was concluded that testing will be most informative if undertaken using appendix tissues or tonsil tissues removed from those over ten years of age. Large epidemics can only be excluded if a small number of infections are detected and the test is able to detect infection early in the incubation period.  (+info)

The coexistence of low-grade mucinous neoplasms of the appendix and appendiceal diverticula: a possible role in the pathogenesis of pseudomyxoma peritonei. (8/269)

We examined 38 appendectomies with diagnoses of mucocele, diverticulum, or adenoma to study the coincidence of appendiceal diverticula and appendiceal low-grade mucinous neoplasms and to examine the possible role of diverticula in the pathogenesis of pseudomyxoma peritonei. Invasive adenocarcinomas and retention cysts were excluded (six cases). Cases were classified as adenomas or mucinous tumors of unknown malignant potential, with or without diverticula. Medical records were reviewed for multiple parameters, including presenting symptoms, presence of pseudomyxoma peritonei, and presence of associated malignancies. Binomial statistics were used to calculate the probability that the observed prevalence of low-grade mucinous neoplasms and diverticula together was significantly different from the expected prevalence of diverticula or low-grade mucinous neoplasms alone, using historical controls from the literature. Twenty-five percent of the total cases (8 of 32) contained both a low-grade mucinous neoplasm (7 cystadenomas and 1 mucinous tumor of unknown malignant potential) and a diverticulum. Thus, 8 of 19 low-grade mucinous neoplasms (42%) were associated with diverticula. Of the appendices with both low-grade mucinous neoplasms and diverticula, three contained dissecting acellular mucin within the appendiceal wall, four showed diverticular perforation, and one had pseudomyxoma peritonei associated with the ruptured diverticulum. A significant percentage (P < .001) of cases contained low-grade mucinous neoplasms and diverticula together. The case of coexistent low-grade mucinous neoplasm, diverticulum, and pseudomyxoma peritonei suggests that diverticula could play a role in the pathogenesis of pseudomyxoma peritonei. This could occur either by involvement of preexisting diverticula by the neoplasm or by distention of the appendiceal lumen by mucin, leading to increased intraluminal pressure and subsequent diverticulum formation at a weak area in the wall. Either mechanism might allow low-grade mucinous neoplasms to penetrate the appendiceal wall more easily.  (+info)

The vermiform appendix is a blind-ended tube that projects from the cecum. The term vermiform comes from Latin and it means worm-shaped. Thus, the vermiform appendix is a projection that is worm-shaped connected to the cecum. The average size of a human vermiform appendix is about 9 cm in length whereas the diameter is generally between 7 and 8 mm. It is often found in the lower right quadrant of the abdomen. Its position corresponds to the so-called McBurneys point. For herbivores, the vermiform appendix is essential since it is responsible for the breaking down of cellulose present in the cell wall of plants. In humans and other animals, it became a redundant process since it has no particular daily function. Nevertheless, it is postulated to be associated with maintaining gut flora, particularly during a recovery from diarrhea.1 ...

Misfolded α-synuclein is a pathological hallmark of Parkinsons disease (PD). Killinger et al. now report that the human appendix contains an abundance of misfolded α-synuclein and that removal of the appendix decreased the risk of developing PD. The appendix of both PD cases and healthy individuals contained abnormally cleaved and aggregated forms of α-synuclein, analogous to those found in postmortem brain tissue from patients with PD. Furthermore, α-synuclein derived from the appendix seeded rapid aggregation of recombinant α-synuclein in vitro. In two large-scale epidemiological studies, the authors demonstrated that an appendectomy occurring decades prior reduced the risk of developing PD, suggesting that the appendix may be implicated in PD initiation. ...

Some mammals have an appendix connected to their cecum-the first section of the large intestine-but others dont. How and when did that once-mysterious organ originate?. Midwestern University Anatomist Heather Smith led an extensive study of 533 mammal species, looking for clues to appendix evolution. Three of the teams scientific observations contradict evolutionary expectations.. This body part bears a wrong reputation as a useless leftover from supposed evolutionary ancestors that once used it. Now science has revealed plenty of valuable activities the appendix performs. It harbors microbes that help the gut recover after traumatic times. Lymphoid tissue also lives there, showing the appendixs integration with the immune system.. Evolution suggests three expectations for appendix origins. First, if the supposed ancestor of only one kind of mammal evolved an appendix, then only members of that kind should have inherited the trait and still have it today. Similarly, if the supposed ...

or caecal] appendix; vermix; or vermiform process) is a blind-ended tube connected to the cecum, from which it develops embryologically. The cecum is a pouchlike structure of the colon, located at the junction of the small and thelarge intestines. The appendix has more recently been identified as an important component of mammalian mucosal immune function, particularly B-lymphocyte-mediated immune responses and extrathymically derived T-lymphocytes. This structure helps in the proper movement and removal of waste matter in the digestive system, contains lymphatic vessels that regulate pathogens, and lastly, might even produce early defences that prevent deadly diseases. Additionally, it is thought that this may provide more immune defences from invading pathogens and getting the lymphatic systems B and T-cells to fight the viruses and bacteria that infect that portion of the bowel and training them, so that immune responses are targeted and more able to reliably and less dangerously fight off ...
Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Raff on why did the ct not show my appendix: will not see rectum but most of large intestine will be seen
In this study, we have shown the presence of ET-1-positive stromal cells and pp-ET-1 mRNA-expressing cells and demonstrated their different distributions and relative frequencies in normal control appendix, histologically normal appendix, and inflamed appendix. In particular, a subgroup of histologically normal appendixes from patients with a clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis had an increased number of ET-1-positive stromal cells and elevated pp-ET-1 mRNA expression, similar to the inflamed appendix. However, in this subgroup of histologically normal appendixes, there were more immunoreactive cells in the lamina propria than in the submucosa and muscularis, whereas the converse was true of inflamed appendix (more immunoreactive cells in the muscularis and submucosa than in the lamina propria). The lower incidence of positive cells in the mucosa of inflamed appendixes may be attributed to partial or complete destruction of the lamina propria by the inflammatory process.. Furthermore, our ...
Now here comes the screwed up part! About 30 minutes later (after I already wrote an e-mail to Romys thesis adviser that he couldnt go into work because he will be getting his appendix removed that day), another doctor comes in. This doctor said something we could not believe. He asked us to confirm that Romy had a CAT scan taken for the same reason one year ago in February. We said yes. Then he kind of smiled and said that the previous doctor had looked at the February 2012 CAT scan by mistake and ordered the puss and appendix removal based on the FEBRUARY scan!!! It was only after they realized they were looking at the old CAT scan (which was supposedly just constipation!?), that they recognized how bad Romy was that day. The new CAT scan revealed a badly ruptured appendix. His appendix was ruptured so badly that they canceled the puss suction and the appendix removal. All the doctor could say was that the new CAT scan was very messed up. Puss, scar tissue, and fluid everywhere. He said ...
In fact, even Charles Darwin said the appendix is a vestigial organ, or one that has become essentially useless over time ~ a concept that is still spouted in biology textbooks to this day.. Recently, however, researchers from Duke University Medical Center have made a very good case for why your appendix may actually be incredibly important. Writing in the Journal of Evolutionary Biology, they point out that an appendix has been maintained in mammalian evolution for 80 million years or longer.. The fact that it has been around for so long, surviving species changes and also existing in a wide variety of species (70 percent of all primate and rodent groups contain species with an appendix, according to the Duke researchers) suggests it plays a critical function in survival... but what?. Well, last year researchers discovered that your appendix actually produces good bacteria and helps protect good bacteria in your gut..

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 ...
Chimpanzees and other apes are our closest living relatives, and they all have an appendix that looks a lot like ours. So its reasonable to infer that our common ancestor 30 million years ago also had one.. But when Dr. Fisher researched the guts of other primates, the picture got blurrier. In some cases its absent, but in other cases its spot-on looking like a human appendix, she said.. Some primate species fall somewhere in between these two extremes, with just a narrowed tip forming on the cecum. Dr. Fisher suspects that the appendix evolved several times in primates, but she cannot say what conditions favored its evolution. Since the data is so poor, I think any trend would just be a lucky happenstance, she said.. Still, I wondered how such a dangerous and disposable organ could survive over evolutionary time.

Primary adenocarcinoma of the appendix is a rare disease in clinical practice. Moreover, primary adenocarcinoma of the appendix in the pediatric age group is even rarer with very little cases being published. Here, we report a case of primary adenocarcinoma of the appendix with local invasion into adjacent organs in a child who was initially diagnosed as having an acute appendicitis. A 13-year-old girl presented with abdominal pain of 3-month duration. Imaging study showed a mass including the fecalith that occupied her pelvic and right lower abdominal cavity. Drainage of the abscess and appendectomy were performed by the preoperative diagnosis of an acute appendicitis with an appendiceal mass. Postoperative histopathological examinations revealed the appendiceal adenocarcinoma. She then received the whole mass resection, ileocecal resection with lymph node dissection. The masses were tightly adherent with infiltration into the sigmoid colon, uterus, and right ovary. These organs were all dissected, and
Thats interesting: the only groups that have an appendix are the Glires (rodents and rabbits), primates, monotremes, and some marsupials. Theres definitely a pattern to the distribution: it is not the case that the appendix is a random glitch in the organization of the gut, but is maintained consistently in some lineages for as long as 80 million years, and is consistently lost in others.. The data are useful to have and provide considerable food for thought; where I disagree with the authors is in the interpretation of that data. I dont think purely morphological data give us enough information to resolve the issues they bring up.. Heres what the authors conclude from that distribution. The most parsimonious explanation is that the ancestral state of mammals was to lack an appendix, so that the majority of extant mammals are exhibiting the primitive, appendix-less state. The appendix then independently evolved 2-4 times, with the lineages that acquired it also marked by frequent secondary ...
According to a study in Science Translational Medicine, the appendix works as a storage of lfa-synuclein protein that is associated with memory-related illness. Therefore, appendectomy reduces the likelihood of patients with Parkinsons disease.. Our findings suggest that the appendix is ​​the site of the origin of the Parkinsons disease and the development of methods that develop new treatment strategies that take advantage of the role of the gastrointestinal tract in the onset of the disease, said Viviane Labrie.. Despite the fact that we have a good reputation that is largely unnecessary, the appendix really plays an important role in our immune system, it regulates the formation of intestinal bacteria, and now, as our work proves, the disease is Parkinsons, the scientist explained.. The risk reduction of Parkinsons disease became apparent only when the appendix and the alpha-synuclein contained in it had been removed early in life in the years prior to the disease, suggesting that ...

Appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix. Symptoms commonly include right lower abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and decreased appetite. However, approximately 40% of people do not have these typical symptoms. Severe complications of a ruptured appendix include widespread, painful inflammation of the inner lining of the abdominal wall and sepsis. Appendicitis is caused by a blockage of the hollow portion of the appendix. This is most commonly due to a calcified stone made of feces. Inflamed lymphoid tissue from a viral infection, parasites, gallstone, or tumors may also cause the blockage. This blockage leads to increased pressures in the appendix, decreased blood flow to the tissues of the appendix, and bacterial growth inside the appendix causing inflammation. The combination of inflammation, reduced blood flow to the appendix and distention of the appendix causes tissue injury and tissue death. If this process is left untreated, the appendix may burst, releasing bacteria into the ...
Definition: Inflammation/Infection of the appendix. The appendix is a small extension of the intestine that is connected to the large intestine (colon). The appendix is usually located in the right lower side of the belly, and it is tubular in shape. Its length differs based on the age. The appendix has no known important function. Appendicitis is inflammation and infection of the appendix and often results from blockage of the appendix by stool (feces). Sometimes, the feces form a small stone called a fecalith. Other causes of appendicitis include swelling of lymph tissues within the appendix wall because of recent infection. Sometimes worms can also block the appendix. Once blockage of the appendix occurs, several things happen ...
Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix. Appendix is a small, finger-shaped tubular structure attached to the large intestine located at the right side of lower abdomen. There is no known function of appendix in human body. When infected with bacteria or due to the blockage, the appendix gradually swells and gets filled with pus. If not treated on time the appendix may rupture spreading the infectious material into the abdomen and even in the blood. Hence, a patient with appendicitis needs to get emergency care before it ruptures.. Anybody can develop appendicitis but it occurs more commonly between the ages of 10 to 30 and is more common in males than females.. Causes. The cause of inflammation in appendix may not be known in many cases. However, in some case, it is thought to be caused by a blockage of the lumen of appendix by the hard stool and indigestible food particles. Once the blockage causes pooling of secretion, bacteria invade the appendix and start inflammation and ...
An infected appendix gradually fills with pus and swells. As it is in its inflamed state, it causes significant pain and discomfort to the body through lethal symptoms. If the pain from these symptoms is bad enough, they could cause the patient to go into shock. As the disease of the appendix grows worse without proper treatment, it ultimately explodes, dealing a significant damage to the body. Not many patients survive after the appendix has exploded. That is why patients need to have their appendix surgically remove, as is the only sure treatment of appendicitis, to prevent such unfortunate event. This surgical operation is called appendectomy. Since there has been no apparent use for the appendix as studied, there is no harm in the removal of the appendix.. Appendicitis is truly a dangerous disease. Most of the times, it takes weeks before the appendix succumbs to the infection and explodes. But there are also cases in which the appendix explode as early as 24 hours after the symptoms show. ...

All laboratory appendices should be interpreted with caution since normal values differ widely among clinical laboratories. The values given in this Appendix are meant primarily for use with this text. In preparing the Appendix, the editors have taken into account the fact that the system of international units (SI, syst_me international dunités) is now used in most countries and in most medical and scientific journals.1 However, clinical laboratories in many countries continue to report values in traditional units. Therefore, both systems are used in the Appendix. Values in SI units appear first, and traditional units appear in parentheses after the SI units. The dual system is also used in the text except for (1) those instances in which the numbers remain the same but only the terminology is changed (mmol/L for meq/L or IU/L for mIU/mL), when only the SI units are given; and (2) most pressure measurements (e.g., blood and ...
Appendix Surgery. The appendix, a small portion of the large intestine, can become infected, causing a condition known as appendicitis. Typical symptoms of appendicitis include pain in the right side of the abdomen (near the navel, then progressing lower and to the right), abdominal swelling, nausea, vomiting, disruption of normal bowel movement, and a low fever that appears after the other symptoms.. The treatment the doctors usually prescribe is the removal of the appendix through an appendectomy. In some cases, they perform laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgical procedure using specially designed scopes and instruments.. ...
Mucocele of the appendix is rare and represents only the tip of the iceberg of underlying benign and malignant pathological processes. Intraoperative diagnosis is also tricky because the inflammation of the appendix often hides the tumor. The preoperative diagnosis is essential to differentiate appendiceal mucocele from acute appendicitis as the treatment varies from open surgical versus laparoscopic surgical approach and for decreasing intraoperative and postoperative morbidity and mortality rate. We present three cases of appendiceal mucocele. The purpose of this paper is to make the physicians aware of the entity, its associations and the effect on management. This review will provide radiologic and pathologic correlation for the preoperative diagnosis of benign and malignant causative processes and differential diagnostic considerations.
A surgeon who accidentally removed a womans ovary instead of her appendix has been struck off after being branded a danger to patients.. Dr Lawal Haruna, 59, botched up three operations over the course of two years.. Patient B was treated by him when she was admitted for abdominal pain while he was working for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.. During the operation, one of her ovaries was removed leaving her appendix - which was causing her great pain - in situ. A tribunal heard how it was lucky she was not of child-bearing age as it could have affected her fertility.. Dr Haruna botched up two further operations - mistaking a lump of fat for an appendix in one case and a skin tag for a cyst in another.. Colleagues described the operations as poorly executed and never events.. Read more in the Daily Mail.. ...

Acute appendicitis is a common cause for a visit to the emergency department and appendectomy represents the most common emergency procedure in surgery. The rate of negative appendectomy however has remained high despite modern diagnostic apparatus. Therefore, there is need for a better preoperative screening of patients with suspected appendicitis. Calprotectin represents a predominant protein in the cytosol of neutrophil granulocytes and has been extensively investigated with regard to bowel pathologies. This study investigates the expression of calprotectin in the lumen of the vermiform appendix of patients undergoing appendectomy for suspected appendicitis. Appendix specimens from patients undergoing emergency appendectomy for suspected acute appendicitis were examined. Acute appendicitis was confirmed on histopathology. The qualitative expression of calprotectin in the vermiform appendix specimens was analyzed using specific calprotectin antibodies. Vermiform appendix specimens from 52 ...
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

Appendicitis occurs when the interior of the appendix becomes filled with something that causes it to swell, such as mucus, stool, or parasites. The appendix then becomes irritated and inflamed. The blood supply to the appendix is cut off as the swelling and irritation increase. Adequate blood flow is necessary for a body part to remain healthy. When blood flow is reduced, the appendix starts to die. Rupture (or perforation) occurs as holes develop in the walls of the appendix, allowing stool, mucus, and other substances to leak through and get inside the abdomen. An infection inside the abdomen known as peritonitis occurs when the appendix perforates.. Appendicitis may occur after a viral infection in the digestive tract or when the tube connecting the large intestine and appendix is blocked or trapped by stool. Because of the risk of rupture, which may occur as soon as 48 to 72 hours after symptoms begin, appendicitis is considered an emergency and anyone with symptoms needs to see a doctor ...

Appendicitis is the inflammation, swelling and infection of the appendix. It may occur at any age but is mostly seen in youth. Appendix is a small tube-like structure attached to part of the large intestine also called colon. Appendicitis occurs when the appendix is blocked. If the blockage continues, the inflamed tissue becomes infected and die due to lack of blood supply. As a result, the appendix ruptures. The symptoms of appendicitis include abdominal pain which may even radiate to lower right abdomen. Some other symptoms include appetite loss, diarrhea, fever, frequent and painful urination, nausea and vomiting.. Appendicitis pain may start with mild cramping and becomes more steady and severe with time. According to the experts, it develops when the appendix is obstructed. Things that may block appendix may be building up of hardened stool, enlarged lymphoid follicles, intestinal worms, traumatic injury or tumors.. Appendicitis can be either acute or chronic. The symptoms develop suddenly ...

Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix when bacteria multiplies, usually caused by the opening of the appendix being blocked or a gastrointestinal viral infection. A person diagnosed with appendicitis will require an appendectomy, or a surgery that would entail the removal of the appendix. If the condition is left untreated, the appendix can rupture and even result in death. Appendicitis is considered a medical emergency, so it's important to know how to recognize the signs of appendicitis and how to get help.
Answer: Villous adenoma. Histology: The dilated appendix is lined by adenomatous epithelium arranged both in a flat and undulating lining as well as a more overt villiform appearance. In areas, the epithelium is attenuated with abundant mucinous secretions. Mucin extravasation is seen under the adjacent colonic mucosa of the cecum. The mucin contains lymphocytes and histiocytes and elicits a surrounding giant cell reaction. No epithelial cells are noted within the mucin.. Discussion: A spectrum of lesions may be seen within the colon and appendix associated with mucin extravasation. At the most benign, one may have a dilated appendix lined by normal epithelium dilated with mucin as the result of an obstruction. Associated with the mucocele, there may be locally extravasation of mucin. Removal of the mucocele is curative. In the current case, there is a villous adenoma of the appendix with abundant mucin production. This mucin has also locally extravasated in the region of the appendix. In ...

In tetrapods, the pharynx is much shorter, and the esophagus correspondingly longer, than in fish. In the majority of vertebrates, the esophagus is simply a connecting tube, but in some birds, which regurgitate components to feed their young, it is extended towards the lower end to form a crop for storing food before it enters the true stomach.[36][37] In ruminants, animals with four stomachs, a groove called the sulcus reticuli is often found in the esophagus, allowing milk to drain directly into the hind stomach, the abomasum.[38] In the horse the esophagus is about 1.2 to 1.5 m (4 to 5 ft) in length, and carries food to the stomach. A muscular ring, called the cardiac sphincter, connects the stomach to the esophagus. This sphincter is very well developed in horses. This and the oblique angle at which the esophagus connects to the stomach explains why horses cannot vomit.[39] The esophagus is also the area of the digestive tract where horses may suffer from choke.

Although the precise shape and size of the stomach varies widely among different vertebrates, the relative positions of the oesophageal and duodenal openings remain relatively constant. As a result, the organ always curves somewhat to the left before curving back to meet the pyloric sphincter. However, lampreys, hagfishes, chimaeras, lungfishes, and some teleost fish have no stomach at all, with the oesophagus opening directly into the anus. These animals all consume diets that require little storage of food, no predigestion with gastric juices, or both.[62] The gastric lining is usually divided into two regions, an anterior portion lined by fundic glands and a posterior portion lined with pyloric glands. Cardiac glands are unique to mammals, and even then are absent in a number of species. The distributions of these glands vary between species, and do not always correspond with the same regions as in humans. Furthermore, in many non-human mammals, a portion of the stomach anterior to the ...
The parapharyngeal space is shaped like an inverted pyramid. Lateral and inferior to the parapharyngeal space is the carotid sheath, containing the internal carotid artery and cranial nerves IX, X and XI. Behind both the parapharyngeal space and carotid space lies the retropharyngeal space, and deep to this a potential space known as the danger space. The danger space serves as an important pathway for complicated infections of the posterior pharynx to enter the chest and spinal column. Anterior to the parapharyngeal space is the masticator space which contains the lower dental row, muscles of mastication, the inferior alveolar nerve as well as branches of cranial nerve V. Lateral to the parapharyngeal space lies the parotid space, which contains the parotid gland, the external carotid artery and cranial nerve VII.[1] Although initial evaluation is typically by physical exam and endoscopy, follow up with CT and MRI usually is needed if surgical intervention is planned.[2] Bony anatomy around the ...

The small intestine is found in all tetrapods and also in teleosts, although its form and length vary enormously between species. In teleosts, it is relatively short, typically around one and a half times the length of the fish's body. It commonly has a number of pyloric caeca, small pouch-like structures along its length that help to increase the overall surface area of the organ for digesting food. There is no ileocaecal valve in teleosts, with the boundary between the small intestine and the rectum being marked only by the end of the digestive epitheliu.[22] In tetrapods, the ileocaecal valve is always present, opening into the colon. The length of the small intestine is typically longer in tetrapods than in teleosts, but is especially so in herbivores, as well as in mammals and birds, which have a higher metabolic rate than amphibians or reptiles. The lining of the small intestine includes microscopic folds to increase its surface area in all vertebrates, but only in mammals do these develop ...

CENTURY. The design of cannon in the sixteenth century was an empirical process, carried on within narrow limits established by the failure which almost invariably rewarded any radical departure from established practice. In the absence of a theory of internal ballistics or a theory relating stress and strain in thick-walled tubing, it could hardly have been otherwise.. In the sixteenth century almost all cannon fell into one of three categories according to design: the culverins, the cannons, and the pedreros. These categories cut across national boundaries with the Ottomans and Portuguese proceeding along a specialized and separate line of development in producing very large pedreros which do not seem to have been initiated elsewhere. The manufacture of at least the Ottoman pedreros, however, apparently differed from that of their western equivalents. More will be said about this later. Hybrid cannon-culverins, usually referred to as bastard cannons or reinforced cannons, were occasionally ...
