In this article, a simplified technique for laparoscopic appendectomy is described in which the base of the appendix is firstly divided, and then ligated with an endoloop. An endoloop is then passed over the appendix onto the mesoappendix and tightened to secure the blood supply. The appendix can then be freed and removed. This technique has been used by the authors in difficult cases, and has produced excellent results.
