Materials & Methods: The study was conducted in department of surgery of our hospital for a period of 6 months. A total of 50 patients who are diagnosed with acute appendicitis were included in the study and are categorised into two groups (Group A receiving Single Dermatome Laparoscopic Appendectomy and Group B receiving Conventional Laparoscopic Appendectomy). Hospital stay and duration of analgesia were noted.
