We developed Mini Loop RetractorⅡ(MLR)in 1997 and have experienced many reduced port laparoscopic surgery using this device. MLR is available with either a tight or loose grip. We can grip inflammatory tissue without damage using MLR. We started applying single incision laparoscopic appendectomy with the Glove's Method using MLR since June, 2009. Since then, a total of 172 patients underwent appendectomy by this method at our hospital. The mean operative time was 50.5±17.6 minutes and intraoperative blood loss was little. The mean postoperative hospital stay was 3.57±2.73 days. Postoperative complications were observed in 4 patients(2.33%). Our method became a standard operation that can be performed by young surgeons, thus a useful method for appendectomy.
