Fukuoka Sanno Hospital Department of Surgery

Primarily we induced the single port laparoscopic surgery for cholecystectomy from September 2009 . In the next, we induced the method for appendectomy from April 2010. We did the single port laparoscopic appendectomy for 5 patients in 15 laparoscopic appendectomy cases during 20 months from April 2010 to November 2011. Post-operative days in the hospital, operative bleeding, and so on were almost same compared to the multiple port methods. But only the mean operative time is 30.6 minutes longer.
We used SILS Port for single port appendectomy, and did the operations by the parallel methods.
