The main argument for with- appendix without a standard open incision, excellent exposure, holding pain medication is that it may obscure the evolution and controlled technique.

The importance of anatomic con- of specific findings that would lead to the decision to operate. It is important that that providing early pain relief may allow the more critical the surgeon determine not only whether the particular clinical clinical signs to be more clearly identified57 and that severe scenario is amenable to a laparoscopic approach but also pain persisting despite adequate doses of narcotics suggests a whether the experience of the entire team and that of the serious condition for which operative intervention is likely to institution as a whole are sufficient for what may be an be necessary.

With this In my view, the decision whether to provide or withhold caveat in mind, various investigators have demonstrated that narcotic analgesia must be individualized. It may be especially desirable to provide medica- with shorter operating times, less postoperative pain, fewer tion in a manner that allows the patient to be comfortable chest complications, shorter postoperative hospital stays, and while lying in the CT scanner. In these cases, the goal of pain earlier return to normal daily activities than the former.

As another considered. Diagnostic laparoscopy has been recommended in example, the pain of acute hypolipoproteinemia may be cases in which surgical disease is suspected but its probability accompanied by pancreatitis, which, if not recognized, can is not high enough to warrant open laparotomy.

Similarly, acute and pros- ticularly valuable in young women of childbearing age, in trating abdominal pain accompanied by rigidity of the abdom- whom gynecologic disorders frequently mimic acute inal wall and a low hematocrit may lead to unnecessary urgent appendicitis.
