OBJECTIVE To determine whether a novel bipolar forceps device that uses heat-pipe technology to manage tissue temperature would result in less tissue injury compared with a conventional antistick forceps design. METHODS In ex vivo and in vivo experiments, lesions were compared at generator powers of 35 and 50 Malis units and at 3- and 10-second activation times. For the ex vivo studies, lesions were produced in specimens of fresh calf liver. Tissue temperatures were measured by using… CONTINUE READING
