The ultrasonically activated scalpel is an energy source which relies on mechanical, vibrational energy rather than thermal energy to incise tissue and achieve hemostasis. To determine the zone of tissue necrosis, microscopic sections were taken from the midpoint of culdotomy incisions performed during laparoscopic hysterectomy. Photomicrographs using… (More)
