Many blood-management options are available for these procedures. The purpose of the present study was to test the hemostatic efficacy of a bipolar sealer used during total hip arthroplasty in order to determine whether its use results in significantly lower transfusion requirements and/or improved clinical, functional, and health-related quality-of… CONTINUE READING
