Rev Hosp Juarez Mex, 76pp. Methods Prospective, longitudinal, analytical, comparative and observational study.

In the case of our study, the positive LR was 3. You can change the settings or obtain more information by clicking here. Upon applying the grading systems to the patients in the study, we found that the RIPASA score showed greater diagnostic certainty compared to the Alvarado score, with a sensitivity of The pathology report was obtained and the efficacy of both scores for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis was compared.

Predicting Survival in Geriatric Trauma Patients: Later, we calculated the LR for our results and for each of the previous similar reports Table 4. Lancet,pp. The Alvarado system includes 3 symptoms, 3 physical signs and 2 laboratory parameters; each variable is assigned a value of 1 or 2 points.

Introduction In order to avoid delay in the diagnosis of acute appendicitis and reduce the margin of error, the use of scales has been used. Usefulness of the Alvarado scoring system with respect to age, sex and time of presentation, with agguda analysis of individual parameters. The differences observed between both scores were not statistically significant.


In contrast, Nanjundaiah et al. We performed an analysis for diagnostic tests sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, par predictive value, false positive, false negative and comparative ROC curves for both scales.

APENDICITIS by Gustavo Rondon on Prezi

Chalya BMC surgery Vera aPedro M. ROC curves were generated Fig. In order to avoid delayed diagnosis, to reduce the margin of error and to identify patients requiring emergency surgery or patients without AA, the application of a scoring scale would be very useful. General practitioners should be trained alvardao the use of these scales to avoid delay in diagnosis. Leukocytosis higher than 10 In the handling of the data, confidentiality was maintained and patient anonymity was respected.

Postoperative complications occurred in 8 patients 4 seromas, 2 infections of the surgical site and 2 residual abscesses.

Patients with abdominal pain syndrome suggestive of acute appendicitis and submitted to surgical intervention were included; the Alvarado and RIPASA scores were apebdicitis applied.

The distribution of AA cases was similar to other reports, predominantly affecting patients between the second and fourth decades of life. The authors have no conflict of interests to declare related with this research. The purpose of this study was to apply both scales in the emergency department in cases of patients with presumptive diagnosis of AA and to compare these with the pathology reports after appendectomy, thereby comparing the efficacy, pxra and specificity of the Alvarado and RIPASA scores in the diagnosis of AA at a tertiary hospital serving the population of eastern Aapendicitis.


The body mass index is calculated by dividing weight alvarao kilos by height squared in meters. A new adult appendicitis score improves diagnostic accuracy of acute appendicitis – a prospective study Henna E.

The Alvarado score published in is an assessment chart Table 1whose sum gives a maximum of 10 points with a higher probability that the patient has AA. Likewise, Sinnet et al. 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 in Western populations of this new scale.
