Abstract :

The diagnosis of acute appendicitis is mainly based on clinical examination. Various diagnostic scores are available to aid in the diagnosis of acute appendicitis with varying success rates. We compared Alvarado and RIPASA scoring systems for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis and their negative appendectomy rate in 100 patients of appendicitis. We observed that RIPASA scoring system was more sensitive but less specific than Alvarado scoring system and the accuracy of negative appendectomy rate was higher in RIPASA scoring system than Alvarado scoring system.
