Appendicitis is a common condition, which is often seen by the general practitioners as well as in the emergency departments. It is normally treated with laparoscopic appendectomy. This review gives an overview of the long-term surgical complications ileus and incisional hernia and of the impact of appendicitis and appendectomy on female fertility. The literature shows, that there is a low risk of ileus and incisional hernia after appendectomy, and that there is no change in female fertility after appendectomy, not even in cases where the appendix was perforated.
