  2. 2. Antibiotic therapy as single treatment of acute appendicitis

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT BACKGROUND Appendectomy has been the established treatment of acute appendicitis during the last century, regarded as a simple and safe procedure, although hampered with postoperative complications and increased standard mortality. Modern research has indicated that selected patients with acute appendicitis can be treated by antibiotic therapy alone. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Small bowel obstruction and toxicity of a new model of adhesion prevention

    Sammanfattning : Abstract Background: Small bowel obstruction (SBO) is a common surgical diagnosis. If no signs of strangulation are evident, the majority of the patients can be conservatively managed. Approximately one third of the patients need surgical treatment and there is a need for early parameters that can predict operative intervention. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Suspected appendicitis is the most common cause of emergency abdominal surgery in children. Because of the often atypical clinical findings, the diagnosis of appendicitis is difficult and may be delayed. Perforation has been reported to occur in 23-73% of children with acute appendicitis.
