In laparoscopic surgery, usually a vascular pedicle or a tissue to be cut is first coagulated and later cut by scissors separately. Here the author has created an instrument with dual function of hemostasis as well as cutting without changing the instruments.


The author has used the described instrument for comparision in 16 laparoscopic appendicectomy and 14 laparoscopic hysterectomy. Here the parameter was time required for only cauterization and subsiquent cutting. Appendix was ligated by Meltzers knot.
