Removing Appendix Is Pretty Easy Now

Before knowing about Appendectomy, let us take a glance at “what is appendicitis”.  Appendicitis is the condition when appendix gets inflamed, where the appendix is a worm-shaped pouch that projects out from cecum.

Brief Description on Appendectomy

An appendectomy is a common emergency surgery which is performed to treat appendicitis by the surgical removal of the appendix. Removal of appendix is the easiest and quickest way to treat appendicitis.

In 1735, the first report on appendectomy procedure came. A surgeon from the English army, Amyan, who performed appendectomy without anesthesia to remove an inflamed appendix.

Main symptoms of Appendicitis

  • Severe stomach pain
  • constipation or diarrhea
  • vomiting
  • loss of appetite
  • low fever

How is appendectomy performed

Appendectomy procedure can be performed by either open surgery or by Laparoscopic technique. The open method requires a 2 to 3-inch incision in the lower right–hand side of the abdomen, where laparoscopic appendectomy is a minimally invasive procedure by three small incisions in the abdomen area under general anesthesia.

For laparoscopic appendectomy procedure, firstly a cannula is inserted to inflate the abdomen with carbon dioxide gas that allows the surgeon to clearly see the appendix. After abdominal inflation, a laparoscope is inserted through one of the incisions, which is attached to a monitor that guides the surgeon to see inside the abdomen. The appendix is tied off with stitches and removed through the incisions. These incisions are then cleaned, closed, and dressed.

Small incisions and minimal scarring.......short surgery which usually takes only 15 to 30 minutes......less postoperative pain.......Short hospital stays......early return to normal activity.....
