Laparoscopic Appendectomy and Open Umbilical Hernia Repair


Main Text

In this case, Dr. Saillant performs a laparoscopic appendectomy on a 24-year-old female who initially presented with perforated appendicitis that was managed conservatively with antibiotics. The patient elected for an interval appendectomy scheduled 6-8 weeks following her presentation. She also had an umbilical hernia, which was repaired upon removal of the laparoscopic ports.
