Complicated vs. Non complicated appendicitis

  • Complicated appendicitis has a perforated or gangrenous appendix.
  • Non complicated appendicitis has a non-perforated appendix.

The treatment plans are different too!

  • Non complicated appendicitis needs an immediate appendectomy
  • Complicated appendicitis need to go through an antibiotic course before going to an appendectomy.
