Perforated appendicitis presenting as a thigh abscess: a lethal combination.

Typical cases of acute appendicitis have excellent treatment outcomes, if managed appropriately.1 We discuss an unusual case of perforated retrocaecal appendicitis that presented as a right thigh absc...

Second date appendectomy: Operating for failure of nonoperative treatment in perforated appendicitis.

Nonoperative treatment of acute appendicitis is embraced by many surgical teams, driven by low to moderate quality randomized studies that support noninferiority of antibiotics versus appendectomy for...

Delta neutrophil index: A reliable marker to differentiate perforated appendicitis from non-perforated appendicitis in the elderly.

Delta neutrophil index (DNI) is a new inflammatory marker and the present study aimed to evaluate the predictive value of the DNI for the presence of a perforation in elderly with acute appendicitis.

Impact of Percutaneous Drainage on Outcome of Intra-Abdominal Infection Associated with Pediatric Perforated Appendicitis.

Perforated appendicitis can result in potentially serious complications requiring prolonged medical care. The optimal approach to successfully managing this condition is controversial.

Laparoscopic Appendectomy in Children With Perforated Appendicitis: A Meta-Analysis.

The purpose of this meta-analysis was to compare the influence of different surgical procedures on perforated appendicitis in pediatric population.

Clinical Trials [2057 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Prospective Randomized Evaluation of Antibiotic Regimen Following Appendectomy for Perforated Appendicitis

The purpose of this study is to compare traditional triple antibiotic therapy against dual single day dosing antibiotic therapy in the management of perforated appendicitis in children.

Irrigation Versus No Irrigation for Perforated Appendicitis

The purpose is to quantify the effect of irrigation during laparoscopic appendectomy for perforated appendicitis.

Role of Intravenous Versus Home Oral Antibiotics in Perforated Appendicitis

To compare the effect of a single-agent home intravenous (IV) versus oral antibiotic therapy on complication rates and resource utilization following appendectomy for perforated appendicit...

Intravenous Versus Intravenous/Oral Antibiotics for Perforated Appendicitis

The objective of this study is to scientifically evaluate two different management strategies for perforated appendicitis. The hypothesis is that early discharge with oral antibiotic ther...

The Impact of IV Acetaminophen on Pain After Appendectomy for Perforated Appendicitis

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Acute inflammation of the APPENDIX. Acute appendicitis is classified as simple, gangrenous, or perforated.

A congenital defect in which the heart is located on the right side of the THORAX instead of on the left side (levocardia, the normal position). When dextrocardia is accompanied with inverted HEART ATRIA, a right-sided STOMACH, and a left-sided LIVER, the combination is called dextrocardia with SITUS INVERSUS. Dextrocardia may adversely affect other thoracic organs.

A genus of gram-negative, anaerobic bacteria in the family Desulfovibrionaceae. It was originally recovered from infections in patients with gangrenous and PERFORATED APPENDICITIS. It is also associated with ABSCESS; BACTEREMIA; and BILIARY TRACT sepsis.

A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
