Results: The mean age of the patients in two groups was 27.2 and 25.5 years respectively. Duration of surgery was 54 min in the open group and 71 min in the laparoscopy group. This difference was statistically significant (P<0.01). Average pain score was 2.72 in open group as compared to 1.21 in laparoscopic group with P< 0.001 which was significant. The duration of analgesics used parenteral and oral in days were on an average 6.44 and 2.2 for open and laparoscopic group respectively.
