In this article, we present 80 noncomplicated acute appendicitis that we operated. The patients was separated into two groups. The first group, appendiceal stump was tied and dropped in abdominal cavity in 40 cases and second group, it was tied and inverted into the cecum in the other 40 cases. The cases were observed in the postoperative period concerning intraabdominal abscess, brid ileus, incisional wound infection and hospitalization duration. No significant difference has been found between these two groups.
