  • Schistosomal appendicitis in Kuwait A5-year study. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Surg Case Rep 2016 Oct 17; 28:303-309
  • Abo-Alhassan F, Faras F, … Dhar PM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although schistosomiasis is a rare causative agent of acute appendicitis, this however can't be confirmed until histological evaluation. Therefore, adequate follow up postoperatively is necessary to insure eradication of the disease and to prevent further serious consequences.
  • Predictive factors and outcomes of negative appendectomy. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Surg 2016 Jul 28
  • Jeon BG
  • CONCLUSIONS: When CT findings are equivocal, in deciding to operate for acute appendicitis, additional ultrasonography can be performed. Furthermore, if the patient is younger than 15 years and the white blood cell count is normal, it is recommended to monitor changes in symptoms a little longer rather than operating hastily.
  • Appendectomy Skin Closure Technique, Randomized Controlled Trial: Changing Paradigms (ASC). [Journal Article]
  • WJWorld J Surg 2016; 40(11):2603-2610
  • Andrade LA, Muñoz FY, … Gonzalez IG
  • CONCLUSIONS: Open appendectomy skin closure with a unique absorbable intradermic stitch is safe, with a reduced seroma and abscess incidence, compared to traditional closure, and an equivalent dehiscence and superficial infection incidence, allowing a lower hospital attention cost and length of hospital stay for treatment of complications. The relative risk of complications with traditional skin closure is 2.91 higher, compared to this new technique.

  • A rare presentation of ectopic ovary in a female adolescent and the impact of obesity: a case report. [Journal Article]
  • JMJ Med Case Rep 2016 Oct 19; 10(1):287
  • Agbor VN, Njim T, Aminde LN
  • CONCLUSIONS: An ectopic inguinal ovary remains a rare occurrence. An urgent and careful exploration of the hernia sac is the standard of care. Careful physical examination of obese girls and women is vital particularly in emergency settings, as obesity in our patient contributed greatly to a missed diagnosis. Clinicians should potentially consider the possibility of an ectopic ovary when faced with girls and women presenting with right iliac fossa pain.
