Breve resumen: Apendicectomía (laparoscópica)

Cuando un niño tiene apendicitis, el apéndice está bloqueado e infectado, y es necesario extirparlo. 

Una apendicectomía laparoscópica permite a los cirujanos extirpar el apéndice con la ayuda de una pequeña cámara de video llamada "laparoscopio". Les permite ver el interior del cuerpo mientras miran un monitor especial.

El cirujano hace una pequeña incisión (corte) en el ombligo e inserta el tubo delgado del laparoscopio. El laparoscopio actúa como los "ojos" del cirujano mientras se guía hacia el apéndice. El cirujano hace dos pequeñas incisiones más para introducir los instrumentos médicos.

Usando estos instrumentos, el cirujano corta con cuidado el apéndice del intestino grueso y lo extrae. Las incisiones se cierran con puntos que se disuelven solos y se cubren con pequeños vendajes.
