BACKGROUND: Enterobius vermicularis (EV) is the most common helminthic infection in the world. This small parasite is predominant in the pediatric population. The presence of EV in the appendix can cause or mimick appendicitis. The aim of our study was to compare patients with EV infection and those without EV infection, and to identify predictive factors that may help the diagnosis of EV infection in patients presenting with right iliac fossa pain and avoid negative appendectomy. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all the appendices removed between January 2012 and December 2016 was conducted at the department of pediatric surgery, Hedi Chaker Hospital, Sfax, Tunisia...

Our study aimed to evaluate the outcome of the surgical treatment of appendicular plastron after deferred or emergency appendectomy. We conducted a retrospective, descriptive study of 27 patients treated for appendicular plastron from January 2000 to 31 December 2007. Diagnosis was based on clinical examination showing a mass in the right iliac fossa, on ultrasound or made intraoperatively. All patients undergoing emergency surgery were classified in Group I while those undergoing deferred surgery were classified in Group II...

INTRODUCTION: There remains a paucity of literature on survival related to pediatric appendiceal tumors. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence, surgical management, and survival outcomes of appendiceal tumors in pediatric patients. METHODS: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Registry was analyzed for pediatric appendiceal tumors from 1973 to 2011. Parameters analyzed were: tumor type, surgical management (appendectomy vs. extensive resection), tumor size, and lymph node sampling...

OBJECTIVES: Acute appendicitis is the most prevalent cause of non-obstetrical surgical disease during pregnancy. There is no consensus on the optimal surgical management of acute appendicitis in pregnancy. Our aim is to identify surgical and obstetrical outcomes of laparoscopic (LA) and open approach (OA) in pregnant patients with acute appendicitis. STUDY DESIGN: Medline, Scopus, Google Scholar, Cochrane CENTRAL Register of Controlled Trials and Clinicaltrials...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Recent epidemiologic studies have suggested that appendectomy could be a risk factor for primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) although the results were inconsistent. This systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to summarize all available evidence. METHODS: A comprehensive literature review was conducted using MEDLINE and EMBASE database through January 2018 to identify all studies that reported the risk of PSC among individuals who had appendectomy versus those with no history of appendectomy...

Invasive aspergillosis is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients who have undergone lung transplantation. Aspergillus infections usually involve the respiratory tract, with vascular invasion and subsequent dissemination. However, acute appendicitis associated with localized aspergillosis is rare, especially among patients who have undergone prophylaxis with voriconazole. We present a case of primary Aspergillus appendicitis diagnosed by histologic examination in a patient who underwent lung transplantation...

We report a case of appendicitis with an abscess that was treated with single-incision laparoscopic ileocecal resection with D2 lymphadenectomy because of intraoperative suspicion of appendiceal cancer. A 73-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of right lower abdominal pain. She was diagnosed with appendicitis with an abscess. Although single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy was planned, appendiceal cancer was suspected from intraoperative findings. Therefore, we performed single-incision laparoscopic ileocecal resection with D2 lymphadenectomy...

Introduction: Appendectomy is still the most commonly performed intra-abdominal operation worldwide. Interestingly, it has not reached the same popularity as other laparoscopic surgical procedures. Although multiple techniques have been described, a standard approach has not been described for the laparoscopic technique yet. Aim: To perform hybrid appendectomy for acute appendicitis on McBurney's point, aiming to perform an easier and quicker procedure while limiting the trauma to the abdominal wall by obtaining the advantages of both laparoscopic and open techniques...

A 37-year-old female patient, 57 kg and 160 cm, underwent laparoscopic appendectomy. In the recovery room, fentanyl 100 mcg was intravenously administered for pain control. Three minutes after the administration, the patient developed intense and uncontrolled myoclonus, lower limb rigidity, agitation, aphasia, and periocular and neck swelling. The myoclonus and rigidity were suspected to be due to the opioid administration, and thus, naloxone was administered, but the symptoms were not improved. The patient's symptoms continued until the patient received administration of physostigmine...

BACKGROUND: Routine prophylactic abdominal drains after laparoscopic appendectomy for perforated appendicitis in children are still controversial. Throughout the history of surgery, potential benefits of the abdominal drains have been described. However, in recent studies, no benefits were observed and serious complications have been reported. METHODS: From January 2000 to December 2013, all charts of the pediatric patients who underwent laparoscopic appendectomy in our tertiary center were revised...

PURPOSE: We hypothesized that laparoscopic (LA) or open appendectomy (OA) outcomes in complicated appendicitis are associated with weekend vs. weekday procedure date. METHODS: We queried the Kids' Inpatient Database (1997-2012) for complicated (540.0, 540.1) appendicitis treated with LA or OA. Propensity score (PS)-matched analysis compared outcomes associated with weekend vs. weekday LA and OA. RESULTS: Overall, 103,501 cases of complicated appendicitis were identified...

BACKGROUND: Appendicitis is the most common abdominal surgical emergency worldwide. Differences between high- and low-income settings in the availability of laparoscopic appendectomy, alternative management choices, and outcomes are poorly described. The aim was to identify variation in surgical management and outcomes of appendicitis within low-, middle-, and high-Human Development Index (HDI) countries worldwide. METHODS: This is a multicenter, international prospective cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Hospitals usually reduce staffing levels and services over weekends. This raises the question of whether patients discharged over a weekend may be inadequately prepared and possibly at higher risk of adverse events post-discharge. OBJECTIVES: To assess the outcomes of common general surgery procedures for patients discharged over weekends, and to identify the key predictors of early readmission. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study...

INTRODUCTION: Acute, intermittent, and chronic abdominal pain is a common complaint after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of medical imaging and the need for surgery treating abdominal pain after RYGB in a cohort with long-term follow-up. METHODS: Data from 569 patients who underwent RYGB as the primary bariatric procedure at a public hospital in Norway between April 2004 and June 2011 were prospectively registered in a local quality registry for bariatric surgery...

PURPOSE: Standardized care via a unified surgeon preference card for pediatric appendectomy can result in significant cost reduction. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of cost and outcome feedback to surgeons on value of care in an environment reluctant to adopt a standardized surgeon preference card. METHODS: Prospective observational study comparing operating room (OR) supply costs and patient outcomes for appendectomy in children with 6-month observation periods both before and after intervention...

BACKGROUND: Traditionally, patients treated conservatively for periappendiceal abscess or phlegmon would subsequently undergo interval appendectomy (IA); however, recent evidence has shed doubt on the necessity of this procedure. This study aimed to assess the outcomes of patients who underwent IA, in comparison with those operated acutely for appendicitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis identified patients who underwent IA between 2000 and 2016...

BACKGROUND: Skill transfer represents an important issue in surgical education, and is not well understood. The aim of this randomized study is to assess the transferability of surgical skills between two laparoscopic abdominal procedures using the virtual reality simulator in surgical novices. METHODS: From September 2016 to July 2017, 44 surgical novices were randomized into two groups and underwent a proficiency-based basic training consisting of five selected simulated laparoscopic tasks...
