Laparoscopic appendectomy must be the gold standard. Nowadays, many centers still continue to go on with McBurney’s incisions. Why? Expensive devices may be a reason. Low cost appendectomy allows for a diagnostic laparoscopy and offers a therapeutic option with the lowest price. On the other hand, residents must begin the learning curve in laparoscopy as soon as possible not only with a training center (training in cadaveric or animals) but they must also start practicing on humans with watchful surgeon/teacher’s eyes. The aim of this video is to demonstrate that low-cost laparoscopic appendectomy is feasible not only for surgeons but also for residents operating with an expert.
