NCT ID: NCT02627781 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Reduction of Negative Appendectomy Rate

Diagnostic Algorithm for Appendizitis (DIALAPP)

Start date: November 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

The diagnosis of acute appendicitis remains a challenge in daily clinical practice. The high incidence of appendicitis drives the need to reduce morbidity and unnecessary costs due to negative appendectomies. The aim of the present observation study is to evaluate a diagnostic and therapeutic algorithm for suspected acute appendicitis. The investigators believe that this diagnostic algorithm helps to simultaneously avoid unnecessary operations, costs and radiation exposure.
