Pancreatic fistula is an unresolved problem after distal pancreatectomy. The current study investigated the safety of LigaSure for distal pancreatic resection in a porcine model. A distal pancreatectomy was performed in 22 pigs. Animals were randomly assigned to undergo conventional scalpel transection with hand-sewn closure of the pancreatic remnant or pancreatic transection and sealing by LigaSure. Closed-suction drainage was collected daily. Animals were sacrificed on postoperative day (POD… CONTINUE READING
