Post-thyroidectomy neck hematoma represents a major concern for surgeons because it can result in severe and even life-threatening complications. In fact, postoperative hemorrhage may result in airway compression and respiratory distress, and therefore, effective hemostasis is an important goal in thyroid surgery. Postoperative hematoma occurs at a rate of approximately 0.1% to 1.1%. Almost all cases occur in the first 6 h after surgery and can be the result of several surgeon or patient factors. For many years the clamp-and-tie technique has been the most common way to divide the main vascular pedicles of the thyroid gland...

BACKGROUND: Recently, several energy-based devices (EBDs) have been developed and applied in the context of thyroid surgery. EBDs can reduce operation time, blood loss, and postoperative pain. Compared to conventional electrocautery, EBDs operate at a relatively lower temperature and produce minimal lateral tissue damage. Yet, during device operation, the tip of the EBD is hot enough to cause thermal nerve damage, increasing the need for surgeons to be cautious about EBD application. To increase the safety of EBDs, we attached nerve stimulators to the tips of two EBDs and compared them to conventional monopolar nerve stimulation using a porcine model...

REVIEW
Steven R Brown
Haemorrhoids are common, affecting up to one quarter of all adults according to some estimates. Numerous interventions exist for their management, ranging from topical and medical therapies to outpatient treatments and surgical interventions that aim to fix or excise. Given the polysymptomatic nature of the disease, it is difficult to effectively judge which treatment option is best. Recently introduced novel haemorrhoid management techniques, such as stapled haemorrhoidopexy, Ligasure™ excision and haemorrhoidal artery ligation, aim to reduce harm whilst maintaining or improving on outcome...
