Cecectomy is thought to be easier and swifter in contrast to other surgical dealings, the ileal cannulation (Parsons, 2002).
1987) found no effect of cecectomy on AA digestibility in grains but observed little variation for oilseed meals.
In recent years, with increasing animal welfare concerns, approval of surgical procedures for cecectomy is becoming difficult by Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees.
An involved margin would be a rational basis for a cecectomy given the assumption that it indicates a possibility that residual disease remains in the appendiceal stump or cecum that can lead to disease recurrence or dissemination.
We recognize that, given the assumption that an involved margin denotes the presence of residual tumor and its attendant risk for recurrence or dissemination, some might find it unacceptable to recommend conservative follow-up rather than cecectomy.
A partial cecectomy is technically feasible and can be safely performed, but an unexpected extended bowel resection, such as ileocecectomy or right hemicolectomy, can increase morbidity and mortality due to such factors as intestinal anastomosis formation and the spread of inflammation over wide areas owing to the manipulation of inflamed tissue .
Ultimately, based on preoperative CT of the abdomen which showed a complicated appendicitis without periappendiceal abscess, 44 patients underwent either partial cecectomy or extended cecectomy, such as ileocecectomy or right hemicolectomy.
We divided the patients into two groups, those who underwent a partial cecectomy (partial cecectomy group) and those who underwent an ileocecetomy or right hemicolectomy (extended cecectomy group), based on whether the resection range extended beyond the cecum.
The partial cecectomy group included 23 patients; 18 patients had a perforated appendicitis with abscess (or microabscess), 3 patients had a perforated appendicitis without abscess, and 2 patients had an advanced appendicitis without perforation.
