  • Bipolar coagulation has long been a safe and effective method of achieving surgical hemostasis. With the advent of laparoscopic procedures, the safety of bipolar coagulation has become even more vital. Unfortunately, the inability of this technology to divide tissue safely has limited its use. For the last 18 months, a new bipolar coagulating/cutting forceps has been evaluated. Its overall benefit has been its ease of use and a reduction in operating time and cost.
