AbstractA prospective study was performed on 635 patients with appendicitis operated on by 7 trainees and 119 patients operated on by 6 senior surgeons with more than 8 years of surgical experience. In patients with normal appendices, postoperative sepsis was extremely low. For early and late appendicitis, the infection rates of the trainees decreased as experiences accumulated, but they were still higher than that of the senior surgeons. The difference in infection rates in acute appendicitis did not reach statistical significance between any of the training stages and between the various stages and the rate of the senior surgeons. The differences in infection rates in late appendicitis between stage 1 and stage 3 was significant, as was the difference in infection rates between stage 1 and the infection rate of the senior surgeons. Therefore, we have concluded that overall, the limited experience of trainees is related to the rate of postoperative sepsis in late appendicitis, although the infection rates of individuals trainees vary a lot.
