Laparoscopy in Acute Suppurative Appendicitis
2 years ago
Minimal invasive surgery had a considerable impact on common surgical techniques and has almost replaced established operative procedures such as cholecystectomy. However, the laparoscopic approach for the treatment of acute appendicitis is still not very popular. Prospective studies demonstrate that laparoscopic appendectomy is at least as good as open appendectomy and that the laparoscopic approach results in a reduced postoperative infection rate.
