This video demonstrates Laparoscopic Appendectomy in Pediatric Patient perform by Dr. R.K. Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. Laparoscopic appendectomy is safe and effective in treating children with suspected appendicitis. It may be safely performed as fast-track or same-day surgery, in select children without perforated appendicitis, with a postoperative stay of ≥24 hours in the majority of such patients. The recurrence of appendicitis caused by an infection -re the usual reasons for removal. The laparoscopic technique seems to be safer than open appendectomy for acute appendicitis in children. The laparoscopic approach is most frequently used, except for young children. Superficial surgical site infections are more frequent after open surgery only in patients with complicated appendicitis. The normal appendix rate is low, most likely because of routine preoperative imaging.
