PMID:  1125887     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Over a 9-year period at one hospital 25 appendectomies were performed during pregnancy. In 20 cases the appendix was acutely inflamed. All mothers survived. Two women aborted and two went into premature labour. One of the premature infants survived. The fetal loss associated with acute appendicitis was 15%. Early diagnosis and operation is essential.
