Key Words Acute appendicitis; Laparoscopic appendectomy; Endoloops; Stapler; Post-operative complications
Core Tip Stump closure in the acute appendectomy setting could be performed via endoloop (EL) or endostapler use. The present meta-analysis assesses the experience of 996 patients consecutively treated in the department of Emergency General Surgery - St Orsola University Hospital, Bologna (Italy) and the evidence published in literature, confirming there is no superiority of a surgical method on how to perform the stump closure, with regards to wound infections, abdominal abscess, and total post-operative complications. Even when acute appendicitis is complicated, the routine use of EL is safe in most patients.
