Title: Incidental neoplasms found on routine emergency appendectomy in a single institution
Background: Neoplasms of the appendix are an infrequent finding found incidentally on pathological evaluation of the appendectomy specimen. We propose a retrospective
chart review to cover all appendectomies performed at the BDF hospital between January 2017 to December 2018. We will include specimens obtained via laparoscopic
methods. exclude non-emergent appendectomies performed on their own or as part of a right hemicolectomy for known or suspected neoplastic lesions of the
appendix. We expect our findings to reflect international findings with an overall rate of 1 in 300. We feel this will further emphasize the need for a high index of
suspicion on part of the clinician as well as an attempt to excise the mesoappendix in emergent appendicitis.
1. Identify the overall rate of incidental neoplasms of the appendix in a single institution.
2. Identify demographic variants that my increase the risk of these findings.
3. Make recommendations with regards to preoperative imaging and surgical technique based on these findings.
Patients with incidental neoplasms, acute appendicitis, normal/hypertrophic appendix are included in our study. However, patients that have been misdiagnosed with
ovarian cyst are excluded from our study.
