  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

The indication of appendectomy in children has been widespread. We have been performing laparoscopic appendectomy since 1992. The advantages of laparoscopic appendectomy are that detection of the appendix and evaluation of the condition within the abdominal cavity can be carried out, irrigation and aspiration can be performed under direct vision, cosmetic result is superior, and postoperative hospital stay is shorter. We believe that laparoscopic appendectomy will take over the conventional appendectomy in children who require general anesthesia even for open appendectomy.
