The results of minilaparotomy in patients with acute appendicitis

Alexey Charyshkin; Maksim Yartsev;

220 patients with acute appendicitis were studied in the period from 2008 to 2017. The mean age was 38.9±14.3 years. All patients underwent surgical treatment: appendectomy made from a mini-access with drainage of the abdominal cavity. Distribution of patients into groups according to the method of minilaparotomy: the first group consisted of 140 patients operated by the traditional method of minilaparotomy and appendectomy. In the second group – 80 patients, appendectomy was performed by the method of mini-access (Charyshkin A. L., Yartsev M. M., patent № 2612983). The original method of minimally invasive access for appendectomy extends the availability for surgery by 4.8 cm2, in relation to the standard minilaparotomy, reduces the time of surgery by an average of 11.5 minutes. Thus the proposed method of minilaparotomy reduces purulent-inflammatory wound complications by 3.9 %.
