Pediatric appendectomy in developing countries: How does it differ from international experience?

Int J Pediatr Adolesc Med 2020 Jun 2;7(2):70-73. Epub 2019 Jul 2.

Faculty of Medicine, University of Balamand, Lebanon.

Introduction: A review of the English literature indicates the faint superiority of laparoscopic (LA) over open appendectomy (OA) in the pediatric population; however, a developing-country's experience in the field is not available yet.

Pediatric Surgery, Baoji Maternal and Child Health care Hospital of Shaanxi Province, Baoji, 721000, China.

Laparoscopic appendectomy for perforated appendicitis in children has the advantages of quick recovery, little influence of inflammatory and oxidative stress and low infection rate. Altogether 115 children with perforated appendicitis treated in our hospital from June 2018 to August 2019 were selected and divided into two groups according to different treatment methods. Laparoscopic appendectomy was used as the research group (RG) (67 cases) and open appendectomy (48 cases) as the control group (CG). Read More

Acute appendicitis is associated with appendiceal microbiome changes including elevated levels.

BMJ Open Gastroenterol 2020 Jun;7(1)

Medically Associated Science and Technology (MAST) Program, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA

Objectives: To compare the appendiceal microbiomes and examine the prevalence of species in the appendices of adult subjects with confirmed acute non-perforated appendicitis and controls with healthy appendices.

Design: Archived samples of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded appendiceal tissues were obtained from 50 consecutive female subjects who underwent appendectomy for acute, non-perforated appendicitis, and 35 consecutive female controls who underwent incidental appendectomy during gynaecological surgery.

Results: 16S rRNA gene sequencing revealed that the relative abundances (RAs) of the major phyla in appendiceal tissues (Firmicutes, Proteobacteria, Bacteroidetes, and Actinobacteria) were similar in both groups. Read More

Geriatric patients undergoing appendectomy have increased risk of intraoperative perforation and/or abscess.

Surgery 2020 May 24. Epub 2020 May 24.

Department of Surgery, University of California, Irvine, Orange, CA. Electronic address:

Background: The number of geriatric patients is expected to grow 3-fold over the next 30 years, and as many as 50% of the surgeries done in the United States may occur in geriatric patients. Geriatric patients often have increased comorbidities and more often present in a delayed manner for acute appendicitis. The aim of this study was to evaluate outcomes between geriatric patients and younger patients undergoing appendectomy, hypothesizing that geriatric patients will have a higher risk of abscess and/or perforation, conversion to open surgery, postoperative intra-abdominal abscess, and 30-day readmission.

Maasstad Ziekenhuis, afd. Chirurgie, Rotterdam.

Recently, the revised guideline 'Guideline for diagnostics and treatment of acute appendicitis' was published by the Dutch Surgical Society. A patient with limited clinical symptoms and low suspicion of appendicitis can be assessed again at a later time, during which ultrasound diagnostics can be repeated. Following an inconclusive ultrasound scan in children who possibly have appendicitis, it is no longer recommended to perform diagnostic laparoscopy; rather, MRI diagnostics are indicated. Read More

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) of superficial colorectal lesions in close proximity to the appendiceal orifice (L-PAO) was shown to be feasible except in case of deep invasion into the appendix (type 3 of Toyonaga's classification). This study aimed to determine the outcomes of ESD with double clip and rubber band traction (DCT-ESD) of L-PAO including a majority of type 3. We reviewed retrospectively all consecutive DCT-ESD of L-PAO performed in 3 French centers. Read More

Laparoscopic versus open approach for diffuse peritonitis from appendicitis ethiology: a subgroup analysis from the Physiological parameters for Prognosis in Abdominal Sepsis (PIPAS) study.

Updates Surg 2020 Mar 19;72(1):185-191. Epub 2020 Feb 19.

Department of Emergency and Trauma Surgery, Maggiore Hospital, Parma, Italy.

Diffuse peritonitis represents a life-threatening complication of acute appendicitis (AA). Whether laparoscopy is a safe procedure and presents similar results compared with laparotomy in case of complicated AA is still a matter of debate. The objective of this study is to compare laparoscopic (LA) and open appendectomy (OA) for the management of diffuse peritonitis caused by AA. Read More

Division of General Surgery, Department of Surgery, Stanford University, Stanford, California.

Acute appendicitis is one of the most common surgical emergencies globally. Its incidence is increasing in low- and middle-Human Development Index countries (LMHDICs). Although a proportion of patients can be treated successfully with non-operative management consisting of antibiotics, supportive therapy, and close observation, current diagnostic algorithms lack the granularity to identify these patients accurately.

Abdominal Drainage at Appendectomy for Complicated Appendicitis in Children: A Propensity-matched Comparative Study.

Ann Surg 2020 Jan 21. Epub 2020 Jan 21.

The National Clinical Database.

Objective: The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of abdominal drainage at appendectomy for complicated appendicitis in children.

Summary Of Background Data: Although an abdominal drain placement at appendectomy is an option for reducing or preventing postoperative infectious complication, there is controversy regarding its effect for complicated appendicitis.

Method: The study used the data on appendectomies for complicated appendicitis in children (≤15 years old) that were operated in 2015 and registered in the National Clinical Database, a nationwide surgical database in Japan. Read More

Department of Gastroenterology, Kagoshima Medical Association Hospital.

Generally, a colon lesion is evaluated by endoscopy. In many cases, total colonoscopy is often difficult to perform due to postsurgical adhesion. Here, we described a case of a colon tumor that could not be recognized by colonoscopy and palpation under laparotomy. Read More

Recovery of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria from patients with acute appendicitis using blood culture bottles

Biomedica 2019 12 1;39(4):699-706. Epub 2019 Dec 1.

Unidad de Prevención y Control de Infecciones, Hospital de San José, Bogotá, D.C., Colombia; Facultad de Medicina, Fundación Universitaria de Ciencias de la Salud, Bogotá, D.C., Colombia.

Laparoscopic management for stump appendicitis: A case series with literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Nov;98(47):e18072

Department of Surgery, Chungbuk National University Hospital.

Introduction: Appendectomy is one of the most common emergency surgical operations. Stump appendicitis is a rare complication after appendectomy and is caused by acute inflammation of the remnant part of the appendix. Because of the low index of suspicion owing to a previous history of appendectomy, the diagnosis of stump appendicitis is often delayed. Read More

University of Brussels, Head, Digestive Clinic, American College of Surgeons Belgian Chapter, Saint-Pierre University Hospital, Brussels, Belgium.

Background: Single-incision laparoscopy (SIL) was initially reported in the mid-1900's, but remained unpopular until the arrival of Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery. It was described not only for surgery involving the digestive system, but also for breast, thoracic, urologic, gynecologic and pediatric surgery. Various studies have proven its feasibility, safety and effectiveness. Read More

Single-Port Laparoscopic Cytoreductive Surgery with Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Nov 9;20:1648-1651. Epub 2019 Nov 9.

Department of Surgery, College of Medicine, King Khalid University Hospital, King Saud University Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

BACKGROUND Cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy is one of the treatment options in low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm with peritoneal dissemination. The minimal invasive surgery approach was introduced to the field after years of traditional open technique. Multi-port laparoscopic and robotic techniques were reported with good short-term outcomes in very selected patients with low PCI scores. Read More

A rare clinical entity: stump appendicitis. Case report and complete review of literature.

Clin Ter 2019 Nov-Dec;170(6):e409-e417

School of Medicine and Surgery, Section of General and Thoracic Surgery (Chair: Giuseppe Modica, MD), University Hospital of Palermo, Palermo, Italy.
