The diagnosis and treatment of acute appendicitis in the aged
Sine the turn of the century, the elderly population, particularly those over the age of 80, has been increasing steadily. Consequently, the surgeon will be confronted frequently with the diagnostic challenge of acute appendicitis in this population. Over the past ten years, 13 patients over the age of 80 were treated for acute appendicitis at the St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital Center. The mean duration of symptoms was 2. Ninetytwo percent had perforated prior to surgery, and 23 percent did not survive the disease.
Unequivocal international guidelines regarding the diagnosis and management of patients with acute appendicitis are lacking. After a systematic review of the literature by an international group of surgical research fellows, an expert panel with extensive clinical experience in the management of appendicitis discussed statements and recommendations. Results from both the web survey and the consensus meeting in Bucharest are presented as percentages. In total, 46 statements and recommendations were selected for the web survey and consensus meeting. More than members and attendees voted on them.
Appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix. Appendicitis is caused by a blockage of the hollow portion of the appendix. The diagnosis of appendicitis is largely based on the person's signs and symptoms. The standard treatment for acute appendicitis is surgical removal of the appendix. Surgery decreases the risk of side effects or death associated with rupture of the appendix. In about The presentation of acute appendicitis includes abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever.
Metrics details. Acute appendicitis AA is among the most common causes of acute abdominal pain. Diagnosis of AA is still challenging and some controversies on its management are still present among different settings and practice patterns worldwide. In July , the World Society of Emergency Surgery WSES organized in Jerusalem the first consensus conference on the diagnosis and treatment of AA in adult patients with the intention of producing evidence-based guidelines. An updated consensus conference took place in Nijemegen in June and the guidelines have now been updated in order to provide evidence-based statements and recommendations in keeping with varying clinical practice: use of clinical scores and imaging in diagnosing AA, indications and timing for surgery, use of non-operative management and antibiotics, laparoscopy and surgical techniques, intra-operative scoring, and peri-operative antibiotic therapy. Literature search has been updated up to and statements and recommendations have been developed according to the GRADE methodology.

The epidemiology and the outcomes of acute appendicitis in elderly patients are very different from the younger population. Elderly patients with acute appendicitis showed higher mortality, higher perforation rate, lower diagnostic accuracy, longer delay from symptoms onset and admission, higher postoperative complication rate and higher risk of colonic and appendiceal cancer. The aim of the present work was to investigate age-related factors that could influence a different approach, compared to the WSES Jerusalem guidelines on general population, in terms of diagnosis and management of elderly patient with acute appendicitis. The statements were then voted, eventually modified and finally approved by the participants to the Consensus Conference. The current paper is reporting the definitive guidelines statements on each of the following topics: diagnosis, non-operative management, operative management and antibiotic therapy.
Стратмор задумался. - С какой стати он должен на него смотреть? - спросил. Сьюзан взглянула ему в. - Вы хотите отправить его домой. - Нет.
Может, заскочить на секунду, когда просмотрю эти отчеты.
Увы, Мидж платили за то, чтобы она задавала вопросы, и Бринкерхофф опасался, что именно с этой целью она отправится прямо в шифровалку. Пора готовить резюме, подумал Бринкерхофф, открывая дверь. - Чед! - рявкнул у него за спиной Фонтейн. Директор наверняка обратил внимание на выражение глаз Мидж, когда она выходила.
В чем. - Пусти меня, - сказала Сьюзан, стараясь говорить как можно спокойнее. Внезапно ее охватило ощущение опасности. - Ну, давай же, - настаивал Хейл. - Стратмор практически выгнал Чатрукьяна за то, что тот скрупулезно выполняет свои обязанности.
