Incidental appendectomy at cesarean section: a prospective study.

Abstract

In conclusion, the present study describes a controlled series and demonstrates the safety of incidental appendectomy at cesarean section. A slight increase in operative time accompanied appendectomy group, but the length of hospital stay and postoperative morbidity were not different. It's our recommendation that at cesarean section if the abnormal appendix is found, appendectomy should be done. Normal appendix can also be removed whenever the opportunity presents in non-risk patients.
