In childhood, laparoscopy-assisted single-port appendectomy (SPA), including the advantages of open and laparoscopic surgery, is not widely used. However, there is debate whether the retrieval of the infected appendix via the umbilicus results in a higher infection rate compared with other laparoscopic or open techniques. The aim of the study was to determine the postoperative infection rate and possible risk factors for infection after SPA in children.
