PurposeThis study was conducted to describe the clinicopathological characteristics of appendiceal tumors and to evaluate their appropriate management.MethodsBetween September 2000 and September 2005, 28 appendiceal tumors were identified by a retrospective review of 3,744 appendectomies.ResultsTwenty-eight patients were found to have appendiceal tumors (incidence, 0.7%).The largest single group of tumors were benign mucinous cystadenomas (50%); carcinoids (32.1%) were next, and they were… Expand
Single-center analysis of appendiceal neoplasms.
TLDR
The incidence of appendiceal neoplasms has increased in recent years, potentially due to increased and earlier detection by newer imaging modalities. Expand
Analysis of Appendiceal Neoplasms on 3544 Appendectomy Specimens for Acute Appendicitis: Retrospective Cohort Study of a Single Institution
TLDR
The information obtained from this study suggests that pathological examination of the specimen may not be necessary if there is no doubt according to preoperative radiological diagnosis and/or intraoperative findings of the surgeon. Expand
Acute appendicitis, inflammatory appendiceal mass and the risk of a hidden malignant tumor: a systematic review of the literature
TLDR
Hidden appendiceal neoplasm in acute appendicitis are rare, fortunately, however, its incidence is much higher in patients presenting appendicesal inflammatory mass, hence, interval appendectomy should be considered in this subgroup of patients. Expand
Appendiceal neoplasm risk associated with complicated acute appendicitis—a population based study
TLDR
Appendiceal tumor prevalence in acute appendicitis was low, and the risk of missed appendiceal tumors related to antibiotic therapy of uncomplicated acuteappendicitis is very low. Expand
Increased Risk of Neoplasms in Adult Patients Undergoing Interval Appendectomy
TLDR
The incidence rate of neoplasms was significantly higher in patients undergoing interval appendectomy, and should be considered when choosing treatment options after successful nonsurgical management of complicated appendicitis. Expand
Tumores malignos del apéndice cecal en pacientes operados por apendicitis en la IV Región de Chile
TLDR
In this series of patients, appendicular tumors had similar characteristics to those reported abroad, and all patients had a favorable evolution without associated mortality or tumor relapse. Expand
NEOPLASIAS MALIGNAS PRIMARIAS DEL APÉNDICE CECAL: ESTUDIO COMPARATIVO ENTRE 2 HOSPITALES REGIONALES
TLDR
Although appendiceal tumors appear in only 0.3% of all appendectomies, the pathological study of the excised appendix is fundamental for the diagnosis. Expand
Rising incidence of appendiceal neoplasms over time: Does pathological handling of appendectomy specimens play a role?
TLDR
An additional increase in incidental appendiceal neoplasms found in appendectomies performed for a clinical picture of acute appendicitis is confirmed, which may be related to more thorough specimen assessment and support a modification in the way appendectomy specimens are handled in pathology labs post-operatively. Expand
Risk of appendiceal neoplasm after interval appendectomy for complicated appendicitis: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The risk of appendiceal neoplasms in patients treated with interval appendectomy for complicated appendicitis is 11%; mucinous neoplasm is the most common histopathological type. Expand
Preoperative Factors Associated with Appendiceal Tumors in Nonelective Appendectomy.
TLDR
While incidental appendiceal tumors can present as acute appendicitis, 3 patient variables and one imaging finding were identified that may increase suspicion for appendicesal tumors. Expand

Appendiceal tumors
TLDR
Most appendiceal tumors are benign and can be managed by appendectomy, except adenocarcinomas and carcinoids larger than 2 cm, which are most appropriately managed by right hemicolectomy, and a suggested management algorithm is provided. Expand
Primary appendiceal neoplasms.
TLDR
A retrospective review of the files of 1,740 appendectomies performed during a 10-year period disclosed 13 patients with primary appendiceal tumors with Adenocarcinoma of the appendix, which is a two- to four-fold higher incidence than reported in the literature. Expand
Malignant neoplasms of the appendix
TLDR
Right hemicolectomy is recommended as the treatment of choice for all malignant appendiceal neoplasms, except for small CCT less than 2 cm in diameter at the tip of the appendix, with a low proliferative index, without angiolymphatic or mesoappendiceal extension. Expand
Adenocarcinoma of the appendix: an unusual disease.

Clinicopathologic Features and Predictors for Survival of Mucinous and Nonmucinous Appendiceal Adenocarcinoma
TLDR
Mucinous appendiceal adenocarcinoma had clinicopathologic characteristics and a prognosis similar to nonmucinous, except that there was more leukocytosis in nonmukinous tumors. Expand
The Natural History of Surgically Treated Primary Adenocarcinoma of the Appendix
TLDR
Primary adenocarcinoma of the appendix should be treated by right hemicolectomy, even if it is a secondary procedure, and surveillance for synchronous or metachronous tumors, especially in the gastrointestinal tract, is warranted. Expand

TLDR
Patients undergoing surgery for appendiceal adenocarcinoma can be stratified according to prognostic variables and the role of adjuvant therapies for patients with poor prognostic factors needs to be evaluated in a multi-institutional setting. Expand
