Title
Risk factors of converting to laparotomy in laparoscopic appendectomy for acute appendicitis.

Abstract

Laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) for acute appendicitis has several advantages over open appendectomy (OA). In cases of complicated appendicitis, LA is converted to OA at a constant rate, though converting appendectomy (CA) has several disadvantages. We retrospectively determined preoperative risk factors for failure of LA and subsequent conversion to OA.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 August 2013.
All research outputs
#14,337,179
of 21,328,399 outputs
Outputs from Clinical and Experimental Gastroenterology
#173
of 293 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#106,386
of 176,284 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical and Experimental Gastroenterology
#5
of 9 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,328,399 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 293 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.6. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 176,284 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 9 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 4 of them.
