This video demonstrates the basic principles of laparoscopic appendectomy in a case of acute appendicitis with limited inflammatory process. The appendicular mesentery is divided using electrocautery and the appendix base is closed with endoloop. This video is enhanced by use of graphic demonstration of key landmarks using artist sketches. It provides for an excellent introduction to laparoscopic appendectomy for beginners.
