  1. Pain scores were evaluated using VAS after surgery. Values were presented as mean ± SD
  2. *Denoted a significant statistical difference between single-port and three-port laparoscopy groups. * and **Denoted P < 0.05 and P < 0.01, respectively. Represented a significant statistical difference between single-port laparoscopy and laparotomy groups. ††† denotes P < 0.001
