Syndrome douloureux de la fosse iliaque droite et laparoscopie: appendicectomie de routine ou non? [Pain syndrome in the right iliac fossa and laparoscopy: routine appendectomy or not?]
Helvetica Chirurgica Acta
Diagnostic laparoscopy is useful in the evaluation of patients with lower right quadrant pain when the diagnosis is uncertain. The object of this study was to determine whether a normal appendix should be routinely removed at laparoscopy. We have decided to do this in children, men under the age of 30 and women of childbearing age. However we do not perform appendectomy in men over the age of 30, women over 50 and in immunodeficient patients. This is a working hypothesis and is the basis of an on-going prospective study in our unit
