The laparoscopic appendectomy has been around for more than 20 years and is still one of the most common procedures in general surgery. We present a novel approach to trocar placement that can potentially reduce operating time compared to the tradi- tional technique. 12 patients were operated with appendicitis with this technique here. Average operating time was 17 minutes. No adverse events were recorded.
