The principal aim of this study was to document the effectiveness of tonsillectomy in dogs using a vessel-sealing device compared with a standard technique with tonsillectomy forceps. A secondary aim of the study was to document histopathological changes of the excised tonsillar tissue in dogs with brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome. 20 dogs were studied. The time taken to remove a tonsil using LigaSure was a mean of 44.8 seconds (sd 15 seconds, 95 per cent CI 40  to 57 seconds) and with the standard technique a mean of 305...

Robson Azevedo Dutra, Adriana Cartafina Perez Boscollo
Background: The anorectal anomalies consist in a complex group of birth defects. Laparoscopic-assisted anorectoplasty improved visualization of the rectal fistula and the ability to place the pull-through segment within the elevator muscle complex with minimal dissection. There is no consensus on how the fistula should be managed. Aim: To evaluate the laparoscopic-assisted anorectoplasty and the treatment of the rectal urinary fistula by a bipolar sealing device...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the feasibility of an oncologically acceptable management for an intermediate-risk endometrial cancer (EC) in an elderly, using the combination of transvaginal single-port laparoscopy and sentinel node policy. METHODS: For this 85-years old patient, BMI 32kg/m(2), with IB grade 2 endometrioid EC, a single vaginal approach was attempted [1] to perform a total hysterectomy, bilateral salpinago-oophorectomy and pelvic node assessment guided by SND [2]...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the best haemostatic strategy for hysterectomy through a network meta-analysis. METHODS: We conducted a systematic literature search of the PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases and extracted data from randomized controlled trials comparing haemostatic strategies for hysterectomy. Direct comparisons and network meta-analyses were conducted in RevMan and ADDIS. Consistency models were established to identify the differences among different haemostatic strategies, and cumulative probability was used to rank the included strategies...

INTRODUCTION: When total thyroidectomy is performed for substernal goitre, a high risk of morbidity is reported. Advanced vessel sealing devices provide an alternative to the conventional clamp and tie technique. The aim of this study is to compare the outcome of patients who underwent total thyroidectomy for substernal goitre using Ligasure Small Jaw, Harmonic Focus, or conventional technique. METHODS: Between 2011 and 2014, from a population of 393 patients undergoing surgery for thyroid disease, 75 (49 females, 26 males, mean age: 57...

BACKGROUND: We compared surgical outcomes of LigaSure™ Small Jaw, which is a multifunctional thermal device that incorporates a tissue divider versus LigaSure Precise™ in thyroid surgery. METHODS: A retrospective, single-center study was carried out in an acute-care teaching hospital in Barcelona, Spain. Between January 2008 and June 2015, consecutive patients scheduled for total thyroidectomy were included in the study. Surgical outcomes were operative time, length of skin incision, use of a suction drain, intraoperative bleeding, postoperative complications and length of hospital stay...

UNLABELLED: Carotid paragangliomas are rare tumors of slow growth, progressive, and highly vascularized; surgery is the chosen treatment, and most surgeons perform an approach with a longitudinal cervicotomy. OBJECTIVE: We present a case of carotid paraganglioma Shamblin III with skull base extension. METHODS: Submandibular approach and vascular sealing device of the Ligasure(®) system were used in the surgery. RESULTS: We achieved complete resection using these adjunctive techniques...

This meta-analysis compared harmonic scalpel and LigaSure(®) systems with the conventional clamp-and-tie technique in thyroidectomy. Medline, Cochrane, EMBASE, and Google Scholar databases were searched until December 30, 2015. Randomized controlled studies (RCTs) or two-arm prospective studies were included. The primary outcome was operation time. The data were evaluated both by pair-wise meta-analyses and network meta-analysis within a Bayesian framework using Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. Compared with the conventional hemostasis, there was a significant reduction in operation time with harmonic scalpel (HS) and LigaSure (LS) (difference in means = -24...

Harmonic scalpel and LigaSure vessel sealing systems have been suggested as options for saving surgical time and reducing postoperative complications. The aim of the present meta-analysis was to compare surgical time, postoperative complications and other parameters between them in for the open thyroidectomy procedure. Studies were retrieved from MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, EMBASE and ISI Web of Science until December 2015. All the randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing Harmonic scalpel and LigaSure during open thyroidectomy were selected...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of the newest bipolar vessel sealing system (BVSS; LigaSure™ Small Jaw) to that of conventional technique in axillary dissection. METHODS: Sixty-one patients with breast cancer were randomized to a conventional dissection surgical technique (CONV group; n = 30) by scalpel and monopolar cautery or that using a vessel sealing system (BVSS group; n = 31). RESULTS: There was a significant difference between both groups in the mean number of days until drain removal (6...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of haemorrhoidectomy done by using LigaSure with conventional Milligan Morgan haemorrhoidectomy. METHODS: This randomized controlled trial was done at Department of Surgery Dow University Hospital Karachi during January 2013 to September 2015. A total of 55 patients were included in the study. Patients were randomly allocated to group A (Haemorrhoidectomy by Ligasure) and group B (Milligan Morgan Haemorrhoiectomy).

INTRODUCTION: To present a series of patients who underwent surgical treatment for massive localized lymphedema (MLL) of the male genitalia and explore the utility of the LigaSure hemostatic vessel sealing device (VSD) for resection of advanced cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Although conservative and microsurgical treatments have been reported, MLL of the male genitalia requires open surgical resection with primary reconstruction. We reviewed our prospectively maintained database of all lymphedema excisions performed between January 2007 and December 2014 comparing resection with Bovie electrocautery to resection with the LigaSure VSD...

BACKGROUND: A longitudinal vaginal septum might present as a nonobstructive or obstructive type. Both can result in dyspareunia, difficult tampon insertion, persistent vaginal bleeding despite tampon placement, and dysmenorrhea. Surgical correction is warranted for symptomatic cases. CASE: We present a 16-year-old female adolescent with a complex cloacal anomaly, uterine didelphys, longitudinal vaginal septum, and other congenital anomalies. The patient was unable to use tampons during menses because of the small caliber on both vaginal canals...

INTRODUCTION: Thyroid disease is common in elderly population. The incidence of hypothyroidism and multinodular goiter increases with age. Surgery in elderly patients has been considered to be more hazardous than in a youthful population. Besides the traditional surgical hemostatic techniques, different hemostatic approaches, which further minimize the risk of bleeding and complications during thyroidectomy, have become available. Aim of this study was to review and compare the outcomes of total thyroidectomy (TT) in elderly performed with different energy system...
