EDITORIAL
Jaffar M Khan, Robert J Lederman
Transcatheter electrosurgery has emerging value in a range of other new procedures that require traversing tissue (transcaval access, transcatheter Glenn Shunt) or slicing tissue (LAMPOON slicing of the mitral valve and BASILICA slicing of the aortic valve). This is the first report of bipolar radiofrequency wires used to cross lesions in humans, reported here in seven re-entry CTO cases. The bipolar configuration may provide directionality to charge without need for wire alignment and advancement, but is theoretically disadvantageous for tissue "cutting" because of problems with charge concentration...

Electrosurgery is widely used in various surgical operations. When tissue is cut with high-frequency current, the cell contents at the incision area evaporate and together with water and possible soot particles, form surgical smoke. The smoke contains cell metabolites, and therefore, possible biomarkers for cancer or bacterial infection. Thus, the analysis of surgical smoke could be used in intraoperative medical diagnostics. We present a method that can be used to detect the characteristics of various tissue types by means of differential ion mobility spectrometry (DMS) analysis of surgical smoke...

Electrosurgery produces surgical smoke. Different tissues produce different quantities and types of smoke, so we studied the particle characteristics of this surgical smoke in order to analyze the implications for the occupational health of the operation room personnel. We estimated the deposition of particulate matter (PM) from surgical smoke on the respiratory tract of operation room personnel using clinically relevant tissues from Finnish landrace porcine tissues including skeletal muscle, liver, subcutaneous fat, renal pelvis, renal cortex, lung, bronchus, cerebral gray and white matter, and skin...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to develop a novel technique called bioprosthetic or native aortic scallop intentional laceration to prevent coronary artery obstruction (BASILICA). BACKGROUND: Coronary artery obstruction is a rare but fatal complication of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). METHODS: We lacerated pericardial leaflets in vitro using catheter electrosurgery, and tested leaflet splaying after benchtop TAVR. The procedure was tested in swine...

Radiotherapy is a reliable method to cure cervical cancer patients, but it could cause serious urological complications after the treatment due to the anatomical location of the cervix. The main purpose of this retrospective analysis is to study the incidence, latency, and therapeutic efficacy of urological complications caused by radical hysterectomy with postoperative radiotherapy or radiotherapy alone in patients with cervical cancer.A retrospective analysis was conducted on patients with cervical cancer who received radical hysterectomy with postoperative radiotherapy or radiotherapy alone at the First Hospital of Jilin University between January 2010 and May 2016...

The human papillomavirus (HPV) has an affinity for squamous cells of stratified keratinized epithelium, thus affecting the lower genital, nasal, and oral tracts. In the oral cavity, HPV is associated with pathoses such as the verruca vulgaris (common wart), squamous cell papilloma, condyloma acuminatum (venereal wart), and focal epithelial hyperplasia (Heck disease). Among the treatments available for these lesions are cryotherapy, electrosurgery, surgical removal, laser therapy, and trichloroacetic acid (TCA)...

RATIONAL: Burns at the site of the return electrode (i.e., grounding pad) are possible effects of electrosurgery. Despite this knowledge, however, ignorance or negligence with regards to proper handling of the grounding pads still often occurs. Burn injuries can be easily prevented by taking the necessary precautions; thus, during plastic surgery, careful attention should to be paid. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 38-year-old female patient was admitted to our ward to be performed augmentation mammoplasty...

BACKGROUND: Surgical energy injuries are an underappreciated phenomenon. Improper use of surgical energy or poor attention to patient safety can result in operating room fires, tissue injuries, and interferences with other electronic devices, while rare complications can be devastatingly severe. Despite this, there is no current standard requirement for educating surgeons on the safe use of energy-based devices or evaluation of electrosurgery (ES) education in residency training, credentialing, or practice...

PURPOSE: To compare the holmium-laser puncture and electrosurgery-incision in neonates with intravesical ureterocele. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the results of laser-puncture of ureterocele (LP group) in 12 patients (mean age 9.8 days, range 4-28) and electrosurgery-incision in 20 patients (ES group) (mean age 10.2 days, range 6-28), treated at our institution. Patients had their records reviewed for preoperative findings, endoscopic procedure description, and postoperative outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Battery replacement or revision surgery for neuromodulation implants is conventionally performed using sharp dissection. Meticulous dissection within thick scar tissue is vital to avoid damage to surrounding lead(s), which could result in more extensive revision surgery. Traditional electrosurgery devices are contraindicated as the emitted energy can be transferred to the hardware, resulting in implant or tissue damage with severe consequent complications. OBJECTIVE: We report our experience and potential applications of a novel, pulsed monopolar radiofrequency energy device (PEAK PlasmaBlade, Medtronic PLC, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA), which facilitates dissection around implants without the risk of damaging or transmitting energy through the system...

OBJECTIVE: This study examines the healing dynamics of in vivo porcine muscle tissue wounds hemostatically treated with a saline-coupled bipolar tissue sealer (SCBS) compared with traditional electrosurgical (ES) coagulation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Six cutaneous incisions were created on the dorsum of 28 adult male Yorkshire swine. The underlying muscle tissue was incised with a cold scalpel then treated with either SCBS (at 170 W) or traditional ES (at Coag 45 W)...

Actinic keratosis, leukoplakia, carcinoma in situ, and superficially invasive carcinomas of the lower lip are caused mainly by the cumulative effects of exposure of the vermilion of the lower lip to ultraviolet radiation. Current treatments all have limitations: cryosurgery or electrosurgery is suitable to treat only focal lesions; topical chemotherapy, which is an option for diffuse actinic damage, yields unreliable results; and laser treatment fails to rejuvenate the vermilion. However, "lip shave", which involves full-thickness excision of the damaged vermilion and reconstruction with an advancement labial mucosal flap, will produce a fresh mucosal lining to the vermilion border...

BACKGROUND: To compare conventional electrosurgery, LigaSure (Valleylab, Boulder, CO), and Harmonic scalpel (Ethicon Endosurgery, Cincinnati, OH) in terms of perioperative and postoperative outcomes during laparoscopic myomectomy (LM). METHODS: We retrospectively studied 817 women with symptomatic fibroids who underwent LM between January 1997 and September 2015. Three different instruments were used separately during surgery. The number and weight of removed fibroids, blood loss, operative time, postoperative decrease in the hemoglobin level, and length of hospital stay were measured for statistical analysis...

High exposures to electromagnetic fields (EMF) can occur near certain medical devices in the hospital environment. A systematic assessment of medical occupational EMF exposure could help to clarify where more attention to occupational safety may be needed. This paper seeks to identify sources of high exposure for hospital workers and compare the published exposure data to occupational limits in the European Union. A systematic search for peer-reviewed publications was conducted via PubMed and Scopus databases...
