Nonoperative management of nonperforated pediatric appendicitis has increased in U.S.A. children's hospitals between 2011 and 2020. Although most children are successfully treated, this study suggests bigger rates of subsequent check-ups and hospitalizations, as well as an increased risk of perforation at the time of failure with that type of management. Further rigorous, large-scale studies of nonoperative management in children are needed to determine its optimal use.
