Abstract

The records of 886 patients who had appendectomy performed by the same surgeons within a five-year period were used to contrast appendiceal stump inversion vs simple ligation. Our analysis contrasted inversion vs simple ligation techniques as related to postoperative complications, hospital stay, and pathologic diagnosis. Adhesions requiring repeated operation to relieve bowel obstruction occurred in five of 87 patients with acute gangrenous appendicitis treated by inversion. Of 106 patients with acute gangrenous appendicits treated with simple ligation, postoperative obstruction developed in none. No other statistically significant differences existed between the two techniques. These data suggest that simple ligation is at least as good as and probably better than inversion of the appendiceal stump.
