Single Incision Laparoscopic Appendicectomy
The usage of single-incision laparoscopic surgery may represent a noticeable difference over conventional laparoscopic surgery. In recent more, more and years articles are already published demonstrating the feasibility on this approach. Hence, that is why, we would rather perform this procedure.
Laparoscopic appendectomy has rapidly developed in recent years. Since Semm published the first complete elimination of the appendix via laparoscopic surgery in 1983 and Schreiber performed the first laparoscopic appendectomy in the patient with acute appendicitis in 1987, laparoscopic appendectomy has been a part of practically all hospitals worldwide as the usual procedure in emergency departments.
The tendency toward reduced patient morbidity after surgery has allowed the creation of techniques requiring an increasingly less invasive access to the operating field. Over the past decade, surgeons inside a bid to become less invasive and provide greater comfort to patients, have developed way of access to the abdominal cavity with less surgical trauma like natural-orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery and single-incision laparoscopic surgery.
The application of single-incision laparoscopic surgery may represent a marked improvement over conventional laparoscopic surgery. With the quantity of incisions reduced to 1 umbilical incision, the opportunity advantages will be a better cosmetic outcome, less postoperative pain on account of nonpenetration in the muscle, and avoidance of possible hemorrhagic complications from injury to the epigastric vessels. In recent more, more and years articles have already been published demonstrating the feasibility of the approach in various pathologies, although the great majority will not include large series or randomized prospective studies.
Laparoscopic appendectomy has several advantages within the open approach, like less surgical trauma, a greater postoperative recovery, exploration in the entire abdominal cavity specially in morbid obese patients and women with a fertile age, treatments for unexpected findings, a brief come back to normal patient activity, as well as a better cosmetic outcome.
