Clinical and laboratory evaluation of an electrosurgical laparoscopic trocar


Electrosurgical energy may be utilized as an adjunct to mechanical force for insertion of laparoscopic trocars. The advantage of this approach may be better operator control of insertion, with less risk of intraperitoneal and retroperitoneal injury. To assess the safety and efficacy of electrosurgical trocars, we compared them to mechanical trocars in… (More)
