    Background: Laparoscopic appendicectomy (LA) has proved to be a safe, effective procedure for appendicitis. However, its application in the current surgical practice is still far less than the laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Therefore, its role as a gold standard operation for acute appendicitis...
