Dr. Whit Holcomb presents common scenarios of appendicitis. Topics of discussion include appendicitis categories of acute non perforated appendicitis, perforated appendicitis, appendicitis presenting with a well defined abscess. Multiple case presentations give rise to discussion of the time interval in which the patient should be operated on, ultrasound usage in adolescent females, surgical approaches- open, three-port laparoscopic, single-incision laparoscopy through the umbilicus, nonoperative appendicitis treatment, ruptured appendix with abscess, and appropriate antibiotics.
