BACKGROUND Ultrasonic dissection devices have been designed for use in open surgery but it is not certain how they compare with standard surgical techniques. METHODS This was a multicentre randomized controlled trial comparing ultrasonic dissection with the traditional surgical technique for haemostasis and dissection during left hemicolectomy and total gastrectomy. The primary endpoint was duration of operation; secondary endpoints were blood loss and other intraoperative parameters, and… CONTINUE READING
