Electrostatic precipitation is a novel way of maintaining visual field clarity during laparoscopic surgery: a prospective double-blind randomized controlled pilot study

Abstract

Ultravision™ is a new device that utilizes electrostatic precipitation to clear surgical smoke. The aim was to evaluate its performance during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy were randomized into “active (device on)” or “control (device off).” Three operating surgeons scored the percentage effective visibility… (More)
