123. Pain over speed bumps in diagnosis of acute appendicitis: diagnostic accuracy study.

Pain over speed bumps in diagnosis of acute appendicitis: diagnostic accuracy study. OBJECTIVE: To assess the diagnostic accuracy of pain on travelling over speed bumps for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis. DESIGN: Prospective questionnaire based diagnostic accuracy study. SETTING: Secondary care surgical assessment unit at a district general hospital in the UK. PARTICIPANTS: 101 patients aged 17-76 years referred to the on-call surgical team for assessment of possible appendicitis. MAIN (...) OUTCOME MEASURES: Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values, and positive and negative likelihood ratios for pain over speed bumps in diagnosing appendicitis, with histological diagnosis of appendicitis as the reference standard. RESULTS: The analysis included 64 participants who had travelled over speed bumps on their journey to hospital. Of these, 34 had a confirmed histological diagnosis of appendicitis, 33 of whom reported increased pain over speed bumps. The sensitivity
