With the technological advances and improvements in surgical laparoscopic techniques, laparoscopic surgery has become the standard procedure of choice for many diseases. Laparoscopy, as a minimally invasive technique, has unique advantages in several areas and many scholars have proved its advantages. The rate of laparoscopic appendectomy has been reported to increase in all groups and 66% of laparoscopic appendectomy performed in nonperforated appendicitis versus 100% of use for perforated appendicitis in United States. We present our single-center experience by this study. The overall postoperative complication rate was similar with literature. Twenty-three patients who underwent emergency laparoscopic appendectomy for acute appendicitis enrolled this retrospective study. 2 patients developed postoperative wound site infection. All of the wound infections could be managed conservatively by opening the wound and did not require any further surgical intervention. Percutaneous drainage was successfully performed for soft tissue abscess. There was no mortality in the early postoperative or the follow-up period. There was no readmission for intestinal obstruction and incisional hernia for both groups. There was no secondary hemorrhagia from operation site. Laparoscopic appendectomy should be considered as the gold standard for surgical treatment of acute appendicitis.
