BACKGROUND: In January 2010, the SICE (Italian Society of Endoscopic Surgery), under the auspices of the EAES, decided to revisit the clinical recommendations for the role of laparoscopy in abdominal emergencies in adults, with the primary intent being to update the 2006 EAES indications and supplement the existing guidelines on specific diseases. METHODS: Other Italian surgical societies were invited into the Consensus to form a panel of 12 expert surgeons. In order to get a multidisciplinary panel, other stakeholders involved in abdominal emergencies were invited along with a patient's association...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this retrospective report is to describe etiologies and therapeutic outcomes of nontraumatic abdominal surgical emergencies in elderly patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The charts of patients aged 60 years or more who underwent emergency surgery for nontraumatic abdominal disorders at a Teaching Hospital in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire from August 1998 to July 2008 were reviewed. Demographic data, clinical findings, operative protocols, and postoperative outcomes were noted...

Laparoscopic surgery has an increasing use in today's world of general surgery, especially in the treatment of diseases such as acute appendicitis, acute cholecystitis, diverticulitis, lysis of adhesions in the setting of small bowel obstruction, incarcerated or strangulated inguinal hernia, and perforated peptic ulcer disease. The aim of this paper is to discuss the diagnosis and management of each disease while placing emphasis on the role of laparoscopy in its treatment.

Emergent operation after renal transplantation (RT) has traditionally been associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. We reviewed 2340 adult patients who underwent RT at our tertiary care center and identified 55 patients who required acute care surgical consultation within 1 year of transplantation. Of these, 43 were treated operatively and 12 nonoperatively. Primary diagnoses were intestinal problems in 29 patients (53%), including diverticulitis, ischemia, perforation, obstruction, and bleeding; cholecystitis in 10 (18%); fluid collections in six (11%), appendicitis and hernias in two each (4%); gastritis in one (2%); and no diagnosis in five (9%)...

BACKGROUND: Emergency laparoscopic exploration can be used to identify the causative pathology of acute abdominal pain. Laparoscopic surgery also allows treatment of many intraabdominal disorders. This report was prepared to describe the effectiveness of laparoscopic surgery compared to laparotomy or nonoperative treatment. METHODS: A panel of European experts in abdominal and gynecological surgery was assembled and participated in a consensus conference using Delphi methods...

Evaluation of an elderly patient with acute abdominal conditions presents a challenge to the physician on account of the general poverty of history and clinical signs and the poor reliability of diagnostic procedures. The management of these pathologies are analyzed: cholecystitis, appendicitis, incarcerated hernia, small bowel obstruction, côlonic diverticular disease, intestinal ischemia and gastroduodenal ulcer. An early elective treatment of chronic pathologies like gallstones, hernias and intestinal ischemia trends to avoid complications...

BACKGROUND: The study determined the incidence of specific surgical diagnoses in patients age 80 years or older who presented to an emergency department (ED) with acute abdomens and required emergency surgical intervention within 72 hours. The usefulness of an increase in temperature and leukocytosis in the evaluation of each surgical diagnostic group is discussed. METHODS: The study was a retrospective review of ED records and operative reports of patients 80 years or older who were seen from November 1992 to September 1995 at a large midwestern tertiary-care ED with 65,000 annual patient visits...

All patients aged 80 years or more admitted to the departments of general surgery in Ringkøbing county, Denmark, during one year were studied prospectively in order to investigate morbidity and mortality following laparotomy in this patient group. A laparotomy was performed in 94 patients (67% women), in 73% as emergency cases. More than half of the patients had important coexisting diseases, and in half of the patients the cause of laparotomy was malignant disease, mostly colorectal cancer, while perforated or bleeding ulcer, cholecystitis, appendicitis, diverticulitis and incarcerated hernias were the most common benign causes of laparotomy...

We have presented four cases of infarcted appendices epiploicae. Because the clinical picture can be confusing, the diagnosis is frequently delayed or missed. Removal of the infarcted appendix results in cure, with no reported cases of recurrence. The disease can be fatal, four deaths having been reported in the literature.
