FULLE C, Angelo et al. Analysis of cases of appendicular adenocarcinoma and its management in a series of 10 years in Hospital Doctor Sótero del Río. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.4, pp.297-301. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2016.12.002.

Introduction: Appendiceal tumors are a rare pathology, not exceeding 0.1% of appendectomies. Objectives: Describe the management and survival of patients diagnosed with appendiceal adenocarcinoma at the Complejo Asistencial Doctor Sótero del Río. Materials and methods: Descriptive retrospective analysis of patients underwent appendectomy, with histopathologic diagnosis of appendiceal adenocarcinoma, in the period from January 2003 to December 2013. Demographic characteristics, symptoms, management and survival were evaluated. Results: Data from 14,582 appendectomies was analyzed; 84 positive biopsies for primary appendiceal tumors (0.58%) were obtained. Of this group, 9 biopsies corresponded to an appendiceal adenocarcinoma (0.06%). Seven of the 9 patients had complete record. The median age was 53 years. Six patients presented with an acute abdomen. Right hemicolectomy underwent 6 patients. Of these, 4 received adjuvant chemotherapy. The 3-year survival was 58%. Conclusions: Appendiceal adenocarcinoma is a rare finding during an appendectomy and is associated with a low overall survival.
