Summary:

An appendectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures in the world.  Since this surgical procedure is performed mostly during ‘off shift’ hours, it is imperative to provide education for CSTs and CSFAs.  Although the standard of care is Laparoscopic Appendectomy, the module also provides information on open appendectomy and the indications for both procedures.

Objectives:

The goal of this appendicitis continuing education program is to provide surgical technologists with information about how appendicitis presents, the role of surgery and possible complications. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the anatomy of the appendix
  • List the contraindications for laparoscopic appendectomy
  • Describe the surgical steps in both an open and laparoscopic appendectomy
