Abstract

APSA 2010 recommendations do not support antibiotic use post-operatively following appendectomy for uncomplicated appendicitis, but compliance varies by institution. This study determined the rate of post-operative antibiotic use in uncomplicated appendicitis and found that 10% of patients were discharged on antibiotics, using the NSQIP files.
