LAPAROSCOPIC APPENDIX REMOVAL (APPENDECTOMY)
Appendicitis is an infection of the appendix. Treatment requires an operation to remove the infected appendix. If the operation does not take place, or even delays, appendicitis will result to a perforated appendix and peritonitis.
During a classic appendix removal surgery, a 5cm incision is necessary over the right side of the abdomen that is one-third of the distance from the anterior superior iliac spine to the navel (the McBurney incision) and exposure of the internal oblique muscle.
