BackgroundSuccessful vascular sealing by radiofrequency (RF)-induced tissue fusion is well established. The present study reports on a novel electrode structure design together with its experimental assessment for RF thermo-fusion of porcine colonic segments.Materials and methodsTwo types of electrode were constructed and used in the present study: one with a conventional smooth surface (S) and the other with a novel reciprocating concave–convex (CC) configuration. Finite element modeling was… CONTINUE READING
