The laparoscopic approach to acute surgical abdomen has been revolutionary because it allows a full inspection of all abdominal and pelvic cavities. It is important to emphasize the possibility not only to be diagnostic but also therapeutic simultaneously. In Western countries but more particularly in Portugal due to the economic crisis, it is compulsory to reduce the cost of surgery in order to maintain the laparoscopic approach. This videos aims to demonstrate the pneumoperitoneum, all the material used, and how to control the appendiceal base and artery in a feasible, reproducible, safe, and inexpensive way.
