Özet

Acute appendicitis is one of the main pathological conditions requiring emergency surgical intervention. The most widely accepted scoring system is modified Alvarado scoring system (MASS). In this study we aimed to improve the efficiency of MASS by adding a new parameter and to evaluate its efficiency in the diagnosis of acute appendicitis.
