Laparoscopic Excision of Omental Infarction Mass: A Case Report

Ibrahim Akkoyun, Ayca Tas Tuna.

Abstract
Omental infarction is a very rare cause of an acute abdomen in children. Symptoms, in particular, display a great similarity to those of appendicitis. A 10-year-old boy with omental infarction was successfully treated by laparoscopic excision. The authors have demonstrated that laparoscopic excision is a technically feasible and safe method associated with a shorter hospital stay, no requirement for analgesics and a good cosmetic outcome.

Key words: Omental infarction, omental torsion, laparoscopy, children
