Development of the Appendectomy

Foundation with its initial explanation by Fitz in the 19th century, acute appendicitis has been a important long-standing medical test; today it remains the maximum common gastrointestinal emergency in adults. Previously in 1894, McBurney advocated for the surgical elimination of the inflamed appendix and is recognised with the initial description of an Open Appendectomy (OA). With the summary of slightly invasive surgery, this classic method evolved into a process with multiple, smaller incisions; a method called Laparoscopic Appendectomy (LA). There is much literature defining the benefits of this newer method.
