Other Name: Habitual appendectomy wound closure
- Decrease in wound complications after appendectomy [ Time Frame: 1-30 days after surgery ]Complication like wound seroma, infection, dehiscence or abscess would be registered in each one of the two groups and the incidence compared between them to stablish which one is the best option.
- Factors associated with appendectomy complications developement [ Time Frame: Previous to surgery and during surgery ]General data and surgery data will be analyzed
