About

In the world, there are several studies comparing the cost-effectiveness between laparoscopic appendectomy and open appendectomy. But in Vietnam, health economics studies for acute appendicitis surgery in general and laparoscopic appendectomy in particular has hardly been available, and in the context of reform of the financial mechanism for payment, questions about the cost-effectiveness between the two surgical methods are particularly concerned. Therefore, we conducted a study "Cost-effectiveness analysis and case-based payment norm modeling in patients with appendectomy at Hanoi Medical University Hospital"

Full description

Acute Appendicitis (AA) is a surgical emergency most common stomach. Appendicitis occurs at all ages. Recently, the rate tends to increase VRTC with age. In the United States, there are about 300,000 cases of appendectomy surgery per year. In Vietnam, according to statistics from a number of other authors showed that the rate of appendectomy surgery accounted for 40.5% - 49.8% of total number of cases of abdominal emergency. Open appendectomy (OA) has long been applied as the gold standard surgical procedure for the treatment of AA for over a century, since it was introduce by McBurrney in 1894 and still be common choice for procedure in many center. In 1981, due to the growth of endoscopic surgery, Semm first introduced the laparoscopic appendectomy, which render a minimal invasive procedure for abdomen and skin, nevertheless, its superiority over open appendectomy (OA) is still being debated. Some more recent paper demonstrate that Laparoscopic Appendectomy is the technique of choice in treatment of AA because of its clinical advantage and cost-effectiveness, however, more than 20 years later, the benefits of LA still remain a controversy for many researchers. There are several studies comparing the cost-effectiveness between laparoscopic appendectomy and open appendectomy in the world. But in Vietnam, health economics studies for appendix removal surgery in general and laparoscopic appendectomy in particular has hardly been available, and in the context of reform of the financial mechanism for payment, questions about the cost-effectiveness between the two surgical methods are particularly concerned. Therefore, we conducted a study "Cost-effectiveness analysis and case-based payment norm modeling in patients with appendectomy at Hanoi Medical University Hospital" with two main purposes Analyze cost-effectiveness between laparoscopic and open surgery in patients undergoing appendectomy at Hanoi Medical University Hospital in 2011 - 2013 Model case-based payment norm of appendectomy patients at Hanoi Medical University Hospital
