dc.description.abstractObjective: To compare hand-made extracorporeal knotting and hem-o-lok clip for the closure of appendix stump regarding safety, complications and cost-effectiveness. Study Design: Descriptive study. Place and Duration of Study: Baskent University Adana Teaching and Research Center, between January 2010 and December 2016. Methodology: A total of 287 patients, who underwent laparoscopic appendectomy, were enrolled in this study. Patients were divided into hand-made extracorporeal knotting and hem-o-lok clip groups. Patients were compared according to age, gender, duration of symptoms, serum leukocyte count, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) score, intraoperative findings, operation time, hospital stay, pathology report and complications. Results: Of 287 patients, 149 (51.9%) were female and 138 (48.1%) were male. The mean age was found 34.9 years. No statistical difference was observed between groups according to age, gender, duration of symptoms, serum leukocyte count, ASA score, operation time and hospital stay. Intraoperative findings were different between groups (p<0.05). Overall postoperative complication rate was 6.6%. No statistical difference was observed regarding complications Conclusion: Both hand-made extracorporeal knotting and hem-o-lok clips can be used for stump closure in laparoscopic appendectomy. Hand-made extracorporeal knotting is an effective, safe and costeffective method alternative to hem-o-lok clips.en_US
