This retrospective study investigates the clinical characteristics, management strategies, and outcomes of perforated appendicitis. Perforated appendicitis is a common surgical emergency associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The study reviews patient demographics, clinical presentation, diagnostic methods, surgical interventions, postoperative complications, and long-term outcomes based on a comprehensive analysis of medical records. Management strategies, including timing of surgery, use of antibiotics, and postoperative care protocols, are critically evaluated to assess their impact on patient recovery and healthcare resource utilization. The findings contribute valuable insights into optimizing treatment approaches for perforated appendicitis to improve patient outcomes.
