ConclusionsAs a result, high neoplasm in ADD patients can be shown with incidence of perforation and plastron, and in order to avoid possible neoplasm or major complications, it is necessary to carry out new studies for the right diagnosis of ADD whether the diagnosis is done preoperatively or ıntraoperatively. We recommend surgical resection of the ADD, which may even be incidentally detected during any surgical procedure, due to its high risk of neoplasm and rapid perforation.

Publication date: Available online 12 September 2019Source: Surgery (Oxford)Author(s): Rishabh Singh, Andrea ScalaAbstractUse of minimally invasive approaches to acute abdominal surgical emergencies has increased in recent decades. Uptake has been slower than for elective surgery, however, with concerns regarding inadvertent injury and operative time being most frequently cited. Laparoscopy for abdominal pain has shown to be safe and is a useful diagnostic procedure in the context of unexplained abdominal pain. Minimally invasive surgery has also been shown to be the approach of choice in appendicitis and cholecystitis. La...

Authors: Dietrich CF, Hollerweger A, Dirks K, Higginson A, Serra C, Calabrese E, Dong Y, Hausken T, Maconi G, Mihmanli I, Nürnberg D, Nylund K, Pallotta N, Ripollés T, Romanini L, Săftoiu A, Sporea I, Wüstner M, Maaser C, Gilja OH Abstract Transabdominal gastrointestinal ultrasound (GIUS) is unique in its capacity to examine the bowel non-invasively and in its physiological condition, including extra-intestinal features such as the splanchnic vessels, mesentery, omentum and lymph nodes- even at the bedside. Despite this, and its extensive documentation for its usefulness, it has only been fully im...

The purpose of this study is to determine if patients with psoriasis are at an increased risk of developing appendicitis, cholecystitis, or diverticulitis compared to the general population. A retrospective, population-based, cohort study was performed utilizing data from the Kaiser Permanente Southern California (KPSC) health network during the study period January 1, 2004 through December 31, 2016. Of 1,690,214 KPSC patients eligible for our study, 10,307 met our diagnostic and inclusion criteria for psoriasis.

Rationale: Primary epiploic appendagitis (PEA) is a rare cause of acute abdomen caused by spontaneous torsion or venous thrombosis of epiploic appendices, it commonly manifests with acute lower quadrant pain, thus may mimic acute diverticulitis, appendicitis, or mesenteric infarction. Patient concerns: In this case report, we report a 44 years old man who presented with persistent sharp pain in the left lower quadrant abdomen, Laboratory tests were mostly normal, contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) revealed a slightly high density shadow with fat foci in the middle was presented around the local descending co...

is uncommon in Western populations with few to zero reports on endoscopic correlations. Although ultrasound or imaging studies typically detect advanced forms to be differentiated from acute appendicitis and/or Crohn’s disease, in more subtle presentations with an indicatio n of urgent ileocolonoscopy, endoscopy may reliably establish an unequivocal diagnosis.

ConclusionThe rate of positive CT diagnosis is considerably higher for the lower abdominal quadrants, predominately due to appendicitis and diverticulitis. However, CT results (positive vs. negative) for all four quadrants strongly correlated with hospital admission versus discharge. Clinical-only diagnosis represented

ConclusionsComputed tomography is of great value for the diagnosis of cecal diverticulitis and its differentiation from acute appendicitis. Conservative treatment is sufficient in uncomplicated cases, while surgery is reserved for those with associated large abscess or free perforation.

Publication date: 2019Source: European Journal of Radiology Open, Volume 6Author(s): William Janika Brackett, Shikha Khullar-GuptaAbstractThis is a case report documenting the risk in imaging misinterpretation of a pediatric patient that presented with an acute abdomen. Computed Tomography (CT) demonstrated an inflamed blind ending loop of bowel in the pelvis without an obvious cecal connection. The patient was taken to the operative theater, a normal appendix and perforated Meckel’s diverticulitis were resected. Meckel’s diverticulum is the most common small bowel abnormality and can have complications. We wil...
