Abstract

Single incision laparoscopic appendectomy (SILA) is gaining interest in the surgical community, as the procedure is possibly easier than single incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC), without the potential boost of iatrogenic injuries which might characterize the initial series and the learning curve (1). Anyway, even the rate of overall morbidity for SILA might be higher than that of classical laparoscopic appendectomy (LA).
