BackgroundBipolar electrosurgical devices and ultrasonic devices are routinely used in open and advanced laparoscopic surgery for hemostasis. New electrosurgical and ultrasonic instruments demonstrate improved quality and efficiency in blood vessel sealing.MethodsThe 5-mm laparoscopic Gyrus PKS™ Cutting Forceps (PK), Gyrus Plasma Trissector™ (GP), Harmonic Scalpel® (HS), EnSeal™ Tissue Sealing and Hemostasis System (RX), LigaSure™ V with LigaSure™ Vessel Sealing Generator (LS), LigaSure™ V with… CONTINUE READING
