Finnish scientists have published a report on a five-year study of the treatment of acute appendicitis with the help of appendectomy (removal of an inflamed appendix) and taking antibiotics. Of the 256 patients treated with medication, 61 percent did without surgery for the next five years. The results are published in the journal JAMA.

When appendicitis inflammation of the cecum appendix. Since the appendix is ​​a rudimentary organ (it has lost its main role as a digestive organ during evolution), the operation to remove it during inflammation without complications is fairly safe. The first such operation was performed in the first half of the XVIII century: then an 11-year-old boy underwent an appendectomy, who quickly recovered after the operation.

Treatment before appendectomy also requires intravenous administration of antibiotics in order to reduce inflammatory processes. In the absence of perforation (rupture) of the appendix, taking antibiotics can significantly improve the patient’s condition, due to which it is assumed that antibiotics may be sufficient to treat uncomplicated appendicitis. Nevertheless, all the clinical trials undertaken so far have had serious limitations: a small number of participants and the absence of a control group.
