Case description

Laparoscopic appendectomy is a safe and efficient procedure for acute appendicitis. Laparoscopic vessel sealing devices have revolutionized modern laparoscopy and make it easier. To date, its use in laparoscopic appendectomy has been described only with respect to use for dividing the mesoappendix. Using a stapler is simple and safe, and its only weakness is its high price in comparison with other methods of securing the appendiceal stump. Staplers are said to be safer than laparoscopic loop ligatures regarding the formation of intraabdominal abscesses and readmission.
