Abstract

Background: Present research aimed to evaluate the wellbeing and the effectiveness of laparoscopy for managing complicated appendicitis. Subjects and Methods: Present descriptive research was carry out on 50 patients at tertiary care institution of Gujarat for the period of 1 year. This study is including patients of complicated appendicitis undergoing laparoscopic management. Parameters studied included Age, Gender, WBC count, wound infection and hospital stay. Results: There was increase of total leucocytic count (leukocytosis) in most of the patients; Mean WBCs was 12.71 5.37. 33 patients had pus free IPF collection and perforated appendicitis (PA), 11 patients had turbid free IPF collection with AA (highly inflamed appendix), 2 case was mucocele of the appendix, 2 cases of appendicular abscess (3.3%) and 2 cases of gangrenous appendix. Conclusion: management of complicated appendicitis laparoscopically is practicable, secure and can present a small occurrence of infectious impediments, fewer post-operative pain, fast revival and improved cosmesis on the cost of extended operating time than OA.
