The purpose

Acute appendicitis is a frequent surgical emergency, with an estimated incidence of about 80,000 cases a year (in France). It mainly affects young adults but is associated with a low complication rate and a short stay in hospital. Ambulatory treatment is an innovative type of care in which the patient is hospitalized for less than 12 hours and does not stay overnight in hospital. Ambulatory care is based on the guidelines issued by three French learned societies (the SFCD, the ACHBT and the AFCA) and has been defined by the French government as a national priority. The literature data show that 20% of patients undergoing appendicectomy for acute appendicitis can be treated on an ambulatory basis. However, the success factors for short-stay care (hospitalization <24 hours) or ambulatory care (hospitalization <12 hours) have yet to be identified. The investigators thus intend to perform a retrospective study of data from the PMSI French national hospital information system, in order to identify factors that are predictive of a length of hospital stay below 24 hours in patients having undergone appendicectomy for acute appendicitis during 2013 in France. The objective is to define the population of patients that could potentially benefit from ambulatory care.
