Appendectomy - Definition


Definition


An appendectomy is a surgical operation which consists of removing the ileo-cecal appendix. The appendix could be infected, often due to an obstruction, and it swells: this is appendicitis. The patient feels strong abdominal pain, most frequently localized to the right of the abdomen, often combined with a fever and nausea. An appendectomy is performed under general anesthetic, by an incision or laparotomy, or much more often now, by laparoscopy, which leaves a smaller scar. Recovery is quick despite pain which can be felt when moving in the following days.
