Abhinav Ranjan, Ajay Kumar, Sandip kumar

Abstract


Introduction: Although laparoscopic surgery has been available for a long time and laparoscopic
cholecystectomy has been performed universally, it is still not clear whether open appendectomy (OA) or
laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) is the most appropriate surgical approach for appendectomy.
Objectives: To compare results of open appendectomy with laparoscopic appendectomy in terms of following parameters:
Operating time
Duration of postoperative hospital stay
Methodology: The study was conducted in Rajendra institute of medical science, Ranchi involving 30 patient during operiod of
april 2018 to march 2019 patients who were diagnosed to have appendicitis and requiring surgical intervention.
Result: After randomization, thirty patients each in LA group and OA group were analyzed. The mean age of patients
undergoing LA and OA were 24.81 years and 24.98 years respectively. The mean duration of surgery in the laparoscopic group
was 54.45 minutes compared to 42.74 minutes in the open group (p=0.042). Duration of postoperative hospital stay was 1.13
days in the laparoscopic group as compared to 3.26 days in the open group
