acute appendicitis in the elderly

Senile acute appendicitis (senile acute appendicitis) refers to acute inflammatory lesions of the appendix that occur in the elderly over 60 years old. Due to the deterioration of the physiological functions of the body and organs of the elderly, the lymphatic tissue of the appendix mucosa degenerates, the defense function declines, and the response to pain is slower, often late to the doctor, more serious appendix lesions, and more complications.
