Abstract

Debate on the effect of in-hospital delay on the risk of perforation in appendicitis persists, and the results from previous studies are controversial. The aims of this study were to present the effect of in-hospital delay on the risk of perforation in appendicitis and to assess the utility of C-reactive protein (CRP) measurement in detecting the patients with complicated appendicitis.

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 15 January 2015.
All research outputs
#10,832,483
of 12,219,104 outputs
Outputs from Langenbeck's Archives of Surgery
#360
of 522 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#239,952
of 295,146 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Langenbeck's Archives of Surgery
#21
of 41 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,219,104 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 522 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.6. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% 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 295,146 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 41 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
