Executive Summary

Laparoscopic appendectomy procedures take longer, are more expensive than conventional surgery and have similar results, say doctors from the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee. Drs Robert Ikard and Charles Federspiel compared data from 230 patients, reports Arzte Zeitung. Laparoscopy procedures took an average of 75 minutes compared with 45 for traditional surgery. However, patients undergoing conventional surgery remained in hospital for an average of 3.6 days compared with 2.6 for those treated laparoscopically.
