Dissection of tissues in Endosurgery for obesity: EXPERIMENTAL ANALYSIS OF ligated

Cover Page


In the accomplished prospective research was fulfilled a comparison between ForceTriad LigaSure-V and Harmonic Scalpel in the circumstances of pretending intraabdominal environment according to lateral heat diffusion, ligation time, burst pressure, intensiveness forming high dispersive aerosol. On isolated vessels FT LS-V has shown the best burst pressure and the shortest ligation time. While using Harmonic Scalpel there was the least effect of lateral heat diffusion and the least smoke. In the state of obesity is held the reliability of the vessel ligation by increasing lateral heat diffusion and intensively of the smoke forming.
