Once the score is established, the diagnosis of appendicitis is classified as doubtful with less than 5 points, croterios from 5 to 6 points, probable from 7 to 8 points, and very probable from 9 to 10 points.

Has misdiagnosis of appendicitis decreased over time? More than one patient presented more than one comorbidity.

It is still a difficult diagnosis to make, especially in young persons, the elderly, and in reproductive-age women, in whom a series of inflammatory conditions can have signs and symptoms similar to those of acute appendicitis. The anatomopathological diagnosis constituted the Standard Gold in this study. Are negative appendectomies still acceptable?. Comparison of appendicitis clinical scoring systems with physician-determined likelihood of appendicitis Research Forum Abstract aepndicitis Cir Gen, 34pp.

The RIPASA system has 18 variables divided into 4 groups data, signs, symptoms and laboratory studies giving them a value of 0.

Prospective, longitudinal, analytical, comparative and observational study. The study was approved by the hospital’s Ethics Committee. The average hospital stay was 3. The study was approved by the hospital’s Ethics Committee. Am J Surg,pp.


Postoperative complications occurred in 8 patients 4 seromas, 2 infections of the surgical site and 2 residual abscesses. More than one patient presented more than one comorbidity. Leukocytosis higher than 10 Mean patient age was JAMA,pp. A descriptive critegios analysis of the demographic data of the population was completed, as well as apnedicitis analysis of diagnostic tests, using the pathology report as a gold standard sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value [PPV], negative predictive value [NPV].

Methods An analytical, observational study was conducted between June 1 and December 31, in patients of both sexes who were 18 years of age or older and came to the emergency department of the Hospital de Alta Especialidad of Veracruz with suspected diagnosis of AA and underwent appendectomy. Several scoring systems have been developed for the early and equivocal diagnosis of this entity, one of these scales is the modified Alvarado, most used in the Western population; however, the RIPASA scale emerges in showing high sensitivity and specificity for Asian and Eastern populations, there are few studies crirerios Western populations of this new scale.


An adequate clinical scoring system would avoid diagnostic errors, maintaining a satisfactory low rate of negative appendectomies by adequate patient stratification, while limiting patient exposure to ionizing radiation, since there is an increased risk of developing cancer with computed tomography, particularly alvagado the pediatric age group. The average positive LR of all the studies included in Table 4 for the Alvarado score was calculated at 3. Emerg Med J, 33pp. Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs?
