Acute appendicitis, the most common cause of acute surgical abdomen, is associated with intra-abdominal complications, such as perforation, that increase morbidity and mortality. Early and accurate pr...
Based on the epidemiological and clinical data, acute appendicitis can present either as uncomplicated or complicated. The aetiology of these different appendicitis forms remains unknown. Antibiotic t...
Diagnosing acute appendicitis (appendicitis) based on clinical evaluation, blood testing, and urinalysis can be difficult. Therefore, in persons with suspected appendicitis, abdominopelvic computed to...
The authors present a case of acute appendicitis during a first trimester pregnancy. Appendicitis in pregnancy is especially dangerous because perforation of the appendix increases the likelihood of m...
Non-operative management of acute uncomplicated appendicitis has shown promising results but might carry the risk of delayed diagnosis of premalignant or malignant appendiceal tumors found by chance i...
Acute appendicitis is a common condition requiring urgent surgery but is often difficult to distinguish from other non-surgical conditions such as urinary infections, pelvic inflammatory d...
It has recently been published that hyperbilirubinemia is a reliable marker for the preoperative diagnosis of perforated acute appendicitis. The investigators believe, based on their own ...
Appendicectomy has been the treatment of acute appendicitis for over a hundred years. Appendicectomy, however, includes operative and postoperative risks despite being a "routine" operatio...
Accurate diagnostic biomarkers for acute appendicitis (AA) are lacking. Circulating fibrocytes (CFs) are increased in inflammatory states. It is not known whether they are altered in appen...
Patients undergoing open appendectomy for acute appendicitis were enrolled in a randomized prospective study.
Acute inflammation of the APPENDIX. Acute appendicitis is classified as simple, gangrenous, or perforated.
Proteins that are secreted into the blood in increased or decreased quantities by hepatocytes in response to trauma, inflammation, or disease. These proteins can serve as inhibitors or mediators of the inflammatory processes. Certain acute-phase proteins have been used to diagnose and follow the course of diseases or as tumor markers.
A member of the CXC chemokine family that plays a role in the regulation of the acute inflammatory response. It is secreted by variety of cell types and induces CHEMOTAXIS of NEUTROPHILS and other inflammatory cells.
An early local inflammatory reaction to insult or injury that consists of fever, an increase in inflammatory humoral factors, and an increased synthesis by hepatocytes of a number of proteins or glycoproteins usually found in the plasma.
A diverse group of agents, with unique chemical structures and biochemical requirements, which generate NITRIC OXIDE. These compounds have been used in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and the management of acute myocardial infarction, acute and chronic congestive heart failure, and surgical control of blood pressure.
