  • Many diagnostic tools for appendicitis: a scoping review. [Review]
    Surg Endosc. 2023 Feb 03 [Online ahead of print]Bahta NNA, Rosenberg J, Fonnes S
  • CONCLUSIONS: We identified 82 diagnostic tools that most frequently were based on symptoms and physical examinations. Most diagnostic tools relied on a medical doctor/surgeon with access to laboratory values. The accuracy was high across the diagnostic tools.
  • Clinical practice selectively follows acute appendicitis guidelines. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Trauma Emerg Surg. 2023 Jan 31 [Online ahead of print]Bass GA, Mohseni S, … ESTES SnapAppy Group
  • CONCLUSIONS: The observed diagnostic and treatment practices of the participating institutions displayed variability in compliance with key recommendations from existing guidelines. In general, practice was congruent with recommendations for preoperative antibiotic surgical site infection prophylaxis administration, time to surgery, and operative approach. However, there remains opportunities for improvement in the choice of diagnostic imaging modality, postoperative antibiotic stewardship to timely discontinue prophylactic antibiotics, and the implementation of ambulatory treatment pathways for uncomplicated appendicitis in the healthy young adult.
  • Acute Appendicitis in Infants - A Report of Two Cases. [Case Reports]
    J Indian Assoc Pediatr Surg. 2022 Nov-Dec; 27(6):781-783.Vendhan KC, Akhtarkhavari A, … Subramanian B
  • Acute appendicitis is the most common surgical emergency in children. However, it is uncommon in neonates and infants. Often it can be challenging to diagnose acute appendicitis in children due to atypical clinical presentation and nonspecific symptoms. This is particularly true in neonates and infants. A high level of clinical suspicion is needed to diagnose infantile appendicitis. Delayed diagn…
  • Subhepatic Appendicitis Presenting With Recurrent Abdominal Pain. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Dec; 14(12):e32939.Yousef AH, Suleimanov V
  • Gut malrotation may result in failure of descent of the cecum to the right iliac fossa, resulting in the anomaly where the cecum and appendix are situated in the subhepatic/gallbladder region. Although the true incidence of subhepatic cecum or appendix is not known, there is a handful of case reports in the literature describing the diagnosis and management of subhepatic appendicitis and associat…
  • Role of Conservative Management in Stump Appendicitis: A Case Series. [Journal Article]
    JNMA J Nepal Med Assoc. 2022 Sep 01; 60(253):828-831.Paudyal N, Saeed FA, Shrestha B
  • Stump appendicitis is a rare, delayed complication of appendectomy. It is seen following both open and laparoscopic appendectomy and may occur weeks to years following the initial appendectomy. We report two cases of stump appendicitis seen at our hospital. Both cases were diagnosed based on radiological findings and successfully managed conservatively with antibiotics. Although the usually recom…
  • Omental torsion; an unusual case of acute abdomen. Case report. [Case Reports]
    Int J Surg Case Rep. 2023 Jan 14; 103:107901.Carrillo LM, de Jesús Marín-López J, … Herrera-Gutiérrez J
  • CONCLUSIONS: It is important to consider omental torsion as another differential diagnosis of acute abdomen, which can be satisfactorily resolved via laparoscopy, thus avoiding the development of complications associated with its natural evolution.
  • Techniques for mesoappendix transection and appendix resection: insights from the ESTES SnapAppy study. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Trauma Emerg Surg. 2023 Jan 24 [Online ahead of print]Bass GA, Kaplan LJ, … ESTES SnapAppy Group
  • CONCLUSIONS: Safe mesoappendix transection and appendix resection are accomplished using heterogeneous techniques. Technique selection for both mesoappendix transection and appendix resection correlates with AAST grade. Higher grade led to more ultrasonic tissue transection and stapled appendix resection. Higher AAST appendicitis grade also correlated with infection-related complication occurrence. Despite the overall well-tolerated heterogeneity of approaches to acute appendicitis, increasing disease acuity or complexity appears to encourage homogeneity of intraoperative surgical technique toward advanced adjuncts.
