"I would say this study is definitive, after 110 observations in each group and absolutely no differences between groups in outcomes, that a moderate volume of saline irrigation does not affect outcome during laparoscopic appendectomy for perforated appendicitis in children," said Shawn D. St. Peter, MD, director of the Center for Prospective Clinical Trials and a pediatric surgeon at Children's Mercy Hospital, Kansas City, Mo. The results, however, cannot be extrapolated to other contaminated cases, he cautioned.
The debate over irrigation of the peritoneal cavity has gone on for more than a century, with the first reports of irrigation dating back to 1906. However, robust studies in patients with perforated appendicitis are few and all previous studies were conducted in the pre-laparoscopic era. Anecdotal reports suggest surgeons are split over whether to irrigate for a perforated appendix.
Dr. St. Peter and his colleagues designed a prospective, randomized trial to compare the effects of irrigation with those of suction alone during laparoscopic appendectomy in children with perforated appendicitis. Perforation was defined as stool in the abdomen or a hole in the appendix.
