    Aim: In childhood, laparoscopy-assisted single-port appendectomy (SPA), including the advantages of open and laparoscopic surgery, is not widely used. However, there is debate whether the retrieval of the infected appendix via the umbilicus results in a higher infection rate compared with other...
