A quote from the following paper...
"In appendicitis, we can open the abscess, inject Peroxide of Hydrogen, and so thoroughly sterilize the pus cavity that we need not fear infection of the general peritoneal cavity, if we wish to separate intestinal adhesions and remove the appendix veriformis.  Many a patient, who is now dead, could have been saved if Peroxide of Hydrogen had been used when he had appendicitis."
