Laparoscopy appendectomy

The appendix is ​​a small tubular sac that attaches to the colon. This small bag is located just below your right abdomen. When the appendix becomes inflamed and swollen, the bacteria quickly multiply and infect, causing a large amount of pus and infectious substances to form inside it. The accumulation of pus and infectious bacteria in the appendix causes abdominal pain around the umbilical cord and its pain extends to the right abdomen. Walking and coughing can aggravate appendicitis pain. It may also cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Appendectomy is the only standard treatment for appendicitis.
laparoscopic appendectomy: The surgery of removing the appendix with the aid of laparoscopy is ​​called a Laparoscopy appendectomy
How it is performed? In laparoscopic appendectomy, the surgeon examines your appendix through a few small incisions on your abdomen. Then a small, narrow tube called the cannula enters your abdominal cavity through these incisions. The cannula is used to inflate your stomach with carbon dioxide gas which allows the surgeon to have a better view of the appendix
After the carbon dioxide gas enters your abdomen, a surgical instrument called a laparoscope is inserted through small incisions on the abdomen. The laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a high beam and a high-quality camera at its tip. This camera shows the image inside the abdominal cavity on a monitor screen so the surgeon can see your abdomen in high resolution and guide the surgical instrument to its desired point. When the physician finds the appendix in the image, the doctor sutures the end of the appendix and removes it. Then small cuts on the surface of your abdomen are cleaned, disinfected, sutured and dressed.
Laparoscopic surgery is usually the best option for elderly and overweight patients. The risks and complications of this procedure are much less than open appendectomy, and the recovery period is generally much shorter.
