Antibiotics may substitute surgery to treat appendicitis

Using surgery to treat appendicitis in children and teens may become a thing of the past as antibiotics proves effective.
Incase you don’t know, Appendix is a small organ attached to the large intestine which is mostly seen as the storehouse for bacteria that aids the digestive system. It can become infected or blocked leading to an inflammation known as appendicitis. This inflammation is mostly experienced by children and teens, and usually treated through an operation to remove the appendix.

A new review of 10 previous studies of 413 children over the past 10 years who received non-operative treatment for appendicitis has found no reported safety concerns or adverse events related to non-surgical treatment. However, the recurrence rate of appendicitis was 14 percent in patients who received antibiotic treatment instead of surgery.
