OBJECTIVE Our aim was to quantify and compare clinical outcome and surgical inflammatory response and tissue trauma after laparoscopic hysterectomy for a benign disorder which was performed by electrosurgery or harmonic scalpel. METHODS Sixty patients scheduled for laparoscopic hysterectomy were selected according to patient preference to undergo either electrosurgery or an ultrasonic operative technique. Blood samples for assay of markers of tissue trauma (C-reactive protein, interleukin-6… CONTINUE READING
