Journal Club 3/10 (Appendicitis & CT Scans)

Hey all.
Here are the documents for the JClub on 3/10/16. We discussed antibiotics vs appendectomy in treating uncomplicated appendicitis. We went over CT abdomen/pelvis. There isn’t too much of a system other than working through it in an anatomical fashion. Here are the associated with it.

For the statistical component, we discussed what non-inferiority studies are. I didn’t make a handout for it. Sorry. Let me know if you have questions about the concept of the design.

  1. Summary of Salminen Pet al. Antibiotic Therapy vs Appendectomy for Treatment of Uncomplicated Acute Appendicitis: The APPAC Randomized Clinical Trial. JAMA. 2015;313(23):2340-2348. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.6154
  2. CT Abdomen_Pelvis. There are a couple links in the handout that are nice to help guide you through a CT as well as some cases.
