The leading indicator of a successful outcome of surgical intervention is generally recognized as an assessment of QL, which includes the physical, psychological, emotional and social functioning of a person. The results of the QL study after 6 months and 1 year following the appendectomy showed significantly higher total physical and mental health indicators in patients after minilaparotomy by the proposed method. Long-term results 1 year after appendectomy in these patients demonstrate the stability of the restored clinical parameters.
