Description

Laparoscopic appendectomy in pediatric age group is increasingly being favored. Potential advantages of laparoscopic appendectomy in children include reduced postoperative pain, a lower wound infection rate, a shorter length of stay, and a faster return to daily activities, including school and sport. After an appropriate learning curve, the difference in operating time between open appendectomy and laparoscopic appendectomy has been shown to be of no statistical significance. Laparoscopic Appendicectomy has added advantage of improved diagnosis. http://www.laparoscopyhospital.com/
