With this thesis we aimed to broaden our knowledge on the diagnostic process and treatment of acute appendicitis and constipation in children. In the first part of this thesis we have demonstrated new risk factors
for the diagnosis and treatment of acute appendicitis, and made recommendations to adjust for these factors in practice. In addition, we have further explored
the etiology of acute appendicitis to see if we could find new treatment targets. In the second part of this thesis we have explored several factors that influence the diagnosis of constipation. Furthermore, we have presented two
methods that may in the future contribute to refine the diagnostic process of constipation at the emergency department. Finally, we recommend to treat constipation as early as possible in children, since young adults do not have
lower prevalence rates of constipation or fewer associated symptoms.
