OBJECTIVE To compare use of neodymium:yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) surgical laser and bipolar electrocoagulation (BEC) for laparoscopic ovariectomy (OVE) in dogs. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical trial. ANIMALS Female dogs (n=72). METHODS Laparoscopic OVE by Nd:YAG laser (600 microm optical fiber, contact mode) in 36 dogs was compared with laparoscopic OVE by bipolar electro-coagulating grasping forceps. Dogs were paired (laser, electrocoagulation) matched for breed, age, body weight… CONTINUE READING
