    • Abstract:
      As of late, the occurrence of appendicitis has notably diminished. However, appendicitis stays one of the more common surgical emergencies, and appendectomy stays the treatment of non-complicated appendicitis. Acute appendicitis (AA), a typical intra-abdominal surgical pathology, obliges a comprehensive understanding of its presentation, assessment, diagnosis, and overall operative administration. There are two types of surgery to remove the appendix. The standard technique is an open appendectomy and laparoscopic appendectomy. As with other laparoscopic surgical procedures, the literature defines decreased pain, earlier resumption of diet, and decreased length of hospital stay for laparoscopic appendectomy versus the equivalent open procedure. Nevertheless, this should be accurately considered in the light of the present condition of the open procedure, which already causes minimal risk and is related with an extremely short hospital stay and a low complication rate. Further disadvantages of laparoscopy incorporate increased cost and longer operating times. We conducted this review using a comprehensive search of MEDLINE, PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials from January 1, 1988, through July 28, 2017.
