Comparison between open and laparoscopic appendectomy: A systematic review
International Journal of Surgery Science
Open appendectomy (OA) has been the treatment of choice for acute appendicitis since its introduction by Mc-burney in 1884. Laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) though widely practiced, has not gained universal approval. LA was first described in 1983. Some early studies showed equivocal results about benefit of LA. Recent studies showed overall benefit in favour of LA. So, we decided to do this study with a view to evaluate the therapeutic benefit of LA by comparing with conventional OA.
