Both mucosal abrasion and decreased blood flow will end in acute appendicitis
and its complications.
A], January 27 ( ANI ): According to a recent research, colonoscopy can "prompt" appendicitis
up to one week after the examination, in certain patients.
The classic clinical presentation of acute appendicitis
, including RLQ pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, and leukocytosis, is confounded by normal changes in maternal physiology during pregnancy.
Conclusion: Modified alvarado score is a highly sensitive test with fair degree of specificity for the early diagnosis of acute appendicitis
especially in the adults.
78g/ml in those diagnosed with non-acute appendicitis
Increasing use of CT scanning in acute appendicitis
increases the cost of care, stay time in the emergency department and delays the time for surgery.
As the pathogenesis of appendicitis
represents occlusion of the appendiceal lumen, followed by overgrowth or translocation of bowel flora resulting in inflammation of the wall of the appendix, anaerobes and gram-negative gut flora represent the most important pathogens.
Objective: In this study, we aimed to show the effectiveness of Alvarado score and its components to predict the correct diagnosis of acute appendicitis
and to find an optimum cut-off value for Alvarado score.
is the most common intra-abdominal emergency worldwide.
Wound infections, bleeding, and intraabdominal abscess are short-term complications of appendectomy, while incisional hernia, bowel obstruction, and stump appendicitis
(SA) are long-term complications (2).
Herein, we report a case of AML initially presented as acute nonsuppurative appendicitis
due to leukemic cell infiltration which is a rarer manifestation of de novo AML.
Conclusion: SILA using the 10-mm laparoscope and glove port technique may be a safe and feasible operation for mild to moderate appendicitis
Laparotomy was performed and it came out to be missed appendicitis
which buried into the abdominal wall and caused the pus track down anteriorly to appear as anterior abdominal wall abscess as one of its rare complication.
is a rare disease in newborns with a high mortality because of unspecific clinical features.
for emergency surgeries, acute appendicitis
is the most common disease entity.
