    Resumen

    MARTINEZ VALDEZ, Alejandro  y  MORATO ARANOBIA, Pablo A. Acute appendicitis and appendicular peritonitis: report of 103 cases during the periods of 2005 to july 2008. REVISTA MEDICIS [online]. 2009, n.5, pp. 16-20. ISSN 1818-5223.

    103 patients operated by acute appendicitis in their different phases, having besides Peritonitis of appendicular origin. In retrospective form, we analyzed the interoperating diagnosis findings, clinical evolution and complications, that will allow to respond to our exposition of the relationship between frequency, appendicitis and peritonitis as well in addition to being able to explain the complications of each one. Therefore, we examined the medical histories of all patients operated in a personal series during February 2005 to July 2008 in the Obrero Hospital, Clinical Universitaria, URME Cliníc, Socavón Clinic and Policlinic Oruro. Of the 103 operated patients, a 55.33% of them presented appendicular peritonitis and only 44.66% of patients with acute appendicitis, of these last 21.73% had some degree of complication, representing a 38.51% of patients with appendicular peritonitis. Therefore it is verified that an early diagnosis of the disease takes to smaller morbidity and therefore costs of attention and earlier labor recovery.
