Abstract

This paper presents two cases of abdominal abscess resulting from a retained faecal stone following laparoscopic appendectomy and emphasizes the significance of avoiding faecal stone omission during the intraoperative period. The research indicates that the implementation of various strategies, including preoperative assessment, utilization of a specimen bag, thorough intraoperative examination, and postoperative review, can effectively decrease the occurrence of postoperative complications. This approach has the potential to increase the success rate of the operation, enhance the treatment experience and prognosis of patients, and is significantly important in improving the safety and efficiency of laparoscopic surgery.
