Comparative study of the safety and efficacy of liquid and dry monopolar electrocoagulation in experimental canine bleeding ulcers using computerized energy monitoring.

Abstract

The drawbacks of monopolar electrocoagulation in the control of gastrointestinal bleeding include tissue adherence, unpredictable energy deposition, and a high incidence of tissue damage. Introduction of a conductive interfacial film of liquid between the monopolar electrode and the bleeding point during electrocoagulation may overcome these drawbacks. A… (More)
