Objective:To compare surgical site infections rate in obese patients after laparoscopic surgery with open general abdominal surgery. Background:In mixed surgical populations, surgical site infections are fewer in laparoscopic surgery than in open surgery. It is not clear if this is also the case for obese patients, who have a higher risk of surgical site infections than nonobese patients. Methods:MEDLINE, Embase, and The Cochrane library (CENTRAL) were searched systematically for studies on… 
Laparoscopic Emergency Surgery for Diverticular Disease That Failed Medical Treatment: A Valuable Option? Results of a Retrospective Comparative Cohort Study
TLDR
Compared with open surgery, laparoscopic surgery for patients in whom medical treatment for complicated diverticular disease failed is associated with favorable outcomes, including a reduced rate of morbidity and a shorter length of stay.
Open versus laparoscopic surgery for primary appendiceal tumors: a large multicenter retrospective propensity score-matched cohort study in Japan
TLDR
Laparoscopic surgery is comparable to open surgery and can be considered a treatment option for primary appendiceal tumors and was not identified as an independent prognostic factor for overall survival in multivariate analysis.
Risk Factors for Surgical Site Infection in Open and Laparoscopic Hartmann Closure: A Multivariate Analysis
TLDR
It is indicated that laparoscopy can significantly reduce SSI, particularly in obese patients, and patients undergoing Hartmann closure are at risk for SSI.
Effect of Surgical Skin Antisepsis on Surgical Site Infections in Patients Undergoing Gynecological Laparoscopic Surgery: A Double-Blind Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
Surgical site infections were more common than expected among patients who underwent gynecological laparoscopies and no skin preparation solution provided an advantage compared with the other solutions in reducing infection rates.
Surgical site infection following abdominal surgery: a prospective cohort study
TLDR
Potentially modifiable independent risk factors for SSI after abdominal surgery including open surgical approach, contaminated wound class and emergency surgery should be addressed systematically and tailoring the antibiotic prophylactic regimen to target the commonly isolated organisms in patients at higher risk forSSI is recommended.
Laparoscopic repair reduces incidence of surgical site infections for all ventral hernias
TLDR
Laparoscopic repair, compared to open repair with mesh, decreases rates of SSI in all types of ventral hernias with no difference in recurrence, suggesting that laparoscopic approach may be the treatment of choice for all types.
Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair in patients with obesity: should we be scared of body mass index?
TLDR
Class III obesity is associated with longer length of hospital stay after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair, but without differences in postoperative complications and long-term outcomes compared with class I and class II obesity.

Laparoscopic versus open appendectomy for the obese patient: a subset analysis from a prospective, randomized, double-blind study
TLDR
In this study, laparoscopic appendectomy did not show a benefit over the open approach for obese patients with appendicitis and no significant differences were seen in any of the secondary outcomes except for a longer operative time among the obese patients.
Laparoscopic versus open surgical techniques for ventral or incisional hernia repair.
TLDR
The short-term results of laparoscopic repair in ventral hernia are promising and in spite of the risks of adhesiolysis, the technique is safe, Nevertheless, long-term follow-up is needed in order to elucidate whether laparoscope repair of ventral/incisional hernia is efficacious.
The role of laparoscopic surgery for ulcerative colitis: systematic review with meta-analysis
TLDR
Laparoscopic surgery for ulcerative colitis was at least as safe as open surgery, even better in postoperative fasting time, postoperative hospital stay, and overall complication rate, and clinical value needed further evaluation with more well-designed and long-term follow-up studies.
Laparoscopic versus conventional appendectomy - a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
LA provides considerable benefits over OA, including a shorter length of hospital stay, less postoperative pain, earlier postoperative recovery, and a lower complication rate.
Laparoscopic Versus Open Gastric Bypass in the Treatment of Morbid Obesity: A Randomized Prospective Study
TLDR
LGBP is a good surgical technique for the management of morbid obesity and has clear advantages over OGBP, such as a reduction in abdominal wall complications and a shorter hospital stay, and the midterm weight loss is similar with both techniques.
Is obesity a high-risk factor for laparoscopic colorectal surgery?
TLDR
Laparoscopic colorectal segmental resections are feasible in obese patients, however, increased rates of conversion to laparotomy should be anticipated and the risk of postoperative complications is significantly increased, prolonging the length of hospitalization when compared to that of nonobese patients.
Surgical site infections and cost in obese patients undergoing colorectal surgery.
TLDR
Pay-for-performance policies that do not account for this increased rate of SSI and cost of caring for obese patients may lead to perverse incentives that could penalize surgeons who care for this population.
Open vs Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: Comparison of Operative Morbidity and Mortality
TLDR
Wound care problems and ventral hernias are more common in Group B (open) and anas tomotic stenoses are moreCommon in Group A (laparoscopic).
Laparoscopic Versus Open Gastric Bypass for Morbid Obesity: A Multicenter, Prospective, Risk-Adjusted Analysis From the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program
TLDR
Multicenter, prospective, risk-adjusted data show that laparoscopic Gastric bypass is safer than open gastric bypass, with respect to 30-day complication rate.
Laparoscopic vs Open Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: A Prospective Randomized Trial
TLDR
Both laparoscopic and open RYGBP are effective and well received surgical procedures in morbid obesity and conversions and/or reoperations in 1/4 of the patients indicate that Lap-RYGBP at present must be considered an investigational procedure.
