Abstract
Single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy (SILA) has gained popularity in children, and several different techniques have been described, including intracorporeal and extracorporeal techniques and single-channel and multi-channel single-port techniques. However, there has been a concern that exteriorizing an infected appendix through the umbilical channel would increase the risk of postoperative wound infections. This report aims to describe a technique for single-port laparoscopy-assisted appendectomy (SPLAA) using an operative laparoscope and conventional laparoscopic instruments, as well as a VersaStep™ sheath to protect the wound edge while removing the appendix from the abdomen.
