Kaushal D. Suthar MS*, Shashikant V. Umaraniya MS**, Prashant N Mukadam MS***.

Abstract
Objective: Comparative study of Diagnostic accuracy of Modified Alvarado Score and Ultrasonography in Acute Appendicitis. Methods: A total of 798 patients of with all age group, both male and females, with clinical features suggestive of acute appendicitis were selected non-randomly for the study. Data was collected as Alvarado score, ultrasonograpic findings and histopathological reports. Statistical analysis was performed and results of both Alvarado score and Ultrasonography were compared. Results: Of 798 patients taken, maximum percentage of patients were in age group 21-30 yrs with males dominated the series. The sensitivity and specificity of alvarado score was 80.36% and 81.89% with PPV 91.02% and NPV 64.61% and diagnostic accuracy of 80.82% respectively. Ultrasonography study revealed 85.05% sensitivity and specificity of 51.02%,PPV and NPV were 79.86% and 59.90% and diagnostic accuracy was 74.68% respectively. Conclusions: The Alvarado score is better investigative tool than ultrasonography alone in diagnosis of acute appendicitis. [Kaushal S NJIRM 2017; 8(6):41-45]

Key words: Alvarado Score, Ultrasonography, Acute Appendicitis.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
