The aim of this study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of single port laparoscopic appendectomy compared with conventional laparoscopic appendectomy in adults with acute appendicitis.
Laparoscopic appendectomy improved the postoperative functional outcomes in the treatment of acute appendectomy. In addition, recently single port laparoscopic surgery was introduced in the laparoscopy-dedicated center. When compared with conventional 3 port laparoscopic appendectomy, single port laparoscopic appendectomy was expected to be less painful, more rapid recovery of bowel function, and better cosmetic. In this prospective randomized trial, we tried to investigate the superiority of this new technique in adult patients with acute appendectomy.

Despite growing popularity, practical advantages of single-port laparoscopic appendectomy (SLA) over conventional three-port laparoscopic appendectomy (CLA) have yet to be established well...
This is a prospective trial of single incision versus standard 3-port laparoscopic appendectomy. The hypothesis is that there may a difference in wound infection rates, operative time, ...
The aim of this prospective randomized trial is to compare the feasibility of open with laparoscopic appendectomy in suspected acute appendicitis. The investigators especially focused on t...
Appendectomy is the most common surgical procedure performed in emergency surgery. Because of lack of consensus about the most appropriate technique, appendectomy is still being performed ...
Appendicitis is the most common benign inflammatory disease that requires an operation. Laparoscopic appendectomy using three trocar is generally performed, and reveals good surgical outc...
Previous comparisons between single-port laparoscopic appendectomy (SPLA) and multi-port laparoscopic appendectomy have been conflicting and limited. We compare our single-surgeon, SPLA experience wit...
Management of appendicitis has evolved dramatically in the last 120 years, from McBurney's large incision to minimally invasive laparoscopic appendectomy to hardly noticeable incisions with SILS. As...
Acute appendicitis is a common surgical emergency. This study was conducted to compare the outcome in terms of duration of surgery, length of hospital stay, and wound infection rate following laparosc...
Transumbilical laparoscopic-assisted appendectomy (TULAA) is fast and cost-effective since no endoloops, staplers or wound protection devices are used. We analyzed the effects of TULAA as first approa...
Infectious Complications After Laparoscopic Appendectomy in Pediatric Patients with Perforated Appendicitis: Is There a Difference in the Outcome Using Irrigation and Suction Versus Suction Only? Results of a Multicentric International Retrospective Study.
Analyzing the recent literature, it seems that the use of irrigation increases the incidence of intra-abdominal abscesses (IAAs) and infectious complications in perforated appendicitis. The aim of thi...
A vascular malformation of developmental origin characterized pathologically by ectasia of superficial dermal capillaries, and clinically by persistent macular erythema. In the past, port wine stains have frequently been termed capillary hemangiomas, which they are not; unfortunately this confusing practice persists: HEMANGIOMA, CAPILLARY is neoplastic, a port-wine stain is non-neoplastic. Port-wine stains vary in color from fairly pale pink to deep red or purple and in size from a few millimeters to many centimeters in diameter. The face is the most frequently affected site and they are most often unilateral. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 5th ed, p483)
Surgical removal of the vermiform appendix. (Dorland, 28th ed)
The former British crown colony located off the southeast coast of China, comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, and New Territories. The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.
