Background: When the Laparoscopic Appendectomy (LA) procedure was first established, individuals with uncomplicated appendicitis were the majority of those who underwent it due to safety concerns. Concerns about the surgical difficulties of laparoscopic treatment of acute perforated appendicitis, probable postoperative complications, and conversion to an OA during the surgery persist. Objective: In this study, we looked at the effectiveness and safety of laparoscopy in treating perforated appendicitis. Methodology: 30 individuals who undergone laparoscopic appendectomy procedures at Assiut University hospitals are included in the study. Following fulfilment of the requirements for enrollment from the department of general surgery, the study population was included. All of the patients enrolled in this trial gave their informed consent. Clinical observations, complete blood counts, and abdominal sonography were used to make the patient's diagnosis. Results: For perforated appendicitis, thirty patients had laparoscopic appendectomy. Of the 30 patients, there are 27 cases of perforated appendix, 1 case of gangrenous appendix, and 1 case of appendicular abscess. Infection of the wound following surgery, conversion rates, and length of hospital stay are quite low. Conclusion: The results of this study demonstrated that the BEST method for treating perforated appendicitis is laparoscopic appendectomy.
