Abstract

Background

Energy sources have been an important part of surgery in achieving hemostasis and bloodless field to operate. Nowadays the most recent and commonly used are the bipolar vessel sealing system (LigaSure) and the harmonic scalpel (HS).

Purpose

To do a comparative review between the LigaSure vessel sealing system and harmonic scalpel to make surgery faster, safer and better.

Materials and methods

The literature regarding this review article was searched online on various websites like Google, PubMed, World Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgeons, YouTube. Search words used were LigaSure vs harmonic scalpel, LigaSure vessel sealing system, role of vessel sealer and HS in laparoscopic surgery.

Conclusion

LigaSure vessel sealing system (LVSS) proves to have a hand above the HS as it depends of the surgeon's convenience to use which of the energy sources when it comes to handling and maneuverability during surgery resulting in an overall faster, safer and a bloodless experience.

Energy System and Endosuturing in Single Incision Laparoscopy Surgery

[Year:2013] [Month:May-August] [Volume:6] [Number:2] [Pages:7] [Pages No:86 - 92]

Abstract

Background

SILS is a newer laparoscopic technique emerging in this era. So this article aims to provide an overview on safer surgical skills by understanding basic principles and proper application of energy source and endosuturing techniques.

Materials and methods

Articles of relevant studies are explored from Google, HighWire Press, PubMed, SpringerLink using keywords—single incision laparoscopy surgery (SILS), energy source in SILS, suturing in SILS.

Aim

The main aim is to evaluate the best energy source which can be used in SILS with better ergonomics and to define the good suturing technique in single port laparoscopic surgery.

Results

Most of the studies show that newer energy devices, such as LigaSure, harmonic and EnSeal, are being used with advantage of less smoke, less operative time, very minimal blood loss, less drop in hemoglobin value postoperatively, and reduced duration of hospital stay. Endosuturing using roticulators, Endostitch is easier, though intracorporeal and extracorporeal knotting can also be perfomed same like conventional laparoscopy.

Conclusion

LigaSure, harmonic and EnSeal can be safely used as multifunctional devices in the available space in SILS without changing the instruments frequently as in conventional laparoscopy. Both intracorporeal and extracorporeal knot can be put by practice and with aid of newer suturing devices.

A Review of Randomized Controlled Trials comparing Single Port Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy with Conventional Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

[Year:2013] [Month:May-August] [Volume:6] [Number:2] [Pages:5] [Pages No:93 - 97]

   DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-10033-1189  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

Aim

To determine the safety and benefits of single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Materials and methods

A search for randomized controlled trials comparing single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy with conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy was conducted using Google scholar, HighPress and SCOPUS.

Results

Single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy has a longer operating time, with equivocal postoperative pain, and offers better cosmetic result with low morbidity.

Conclusion

Single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy is at least as safe as conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy in carefully selected patients.

Laparoscopic Management for Hydatid Disease of Liver: Experience of Single Center

[Year:2013] [Month:May-August] [Volume:6] [Number:2] [Pages:4] [Pages No:98 - 101]

   DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-10033-1190  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

Objectives

The objectives of this study were to investigate the characteristics and outcome of patients with hydatid disease of the liver who were laparoscopically managed at our clinic and to define technical details of the method.

Materials and methods

Between January 2011 and June 2012, 11 patients with hydatid disease of the liver were considered for laparoscopic surgery in our department. All the patients underwent to laparoscopic surgical interventions.

Results

In all patients, laparoscopic cystotomy, unroofing with laparoscopic cutting and sealing instruments for surgical dissection and omentoplasty were performed. No conversion to laparotomy was necessary. No radiological recurrens was observed in a mean follow-up of 11 months (range: 3-18 months).

Conclusion

Laparoscopy is quite feasible to perform in hydatid disease of the liver and, the use of laparoscopic cutting and sealing instruments allows effective dissection and partial cystectomy. Cyst size and grade is not restrict laparoscopic surgery for liver hydatic disease. Obliteration of the residual cystic cavity decreases postoperative complication rates, so an effective omentoplasty is essential especially for laparoscopic procedures. The use of helical fasteners allows effective omental flap fixation.

Laparoscopic Myomectomy for Large Fibroids with Synchronized use of Uterine Artery Embolization

[Year:2013] [Month:May-August] [Volume:6] [Number:2] [Pages:4] [Pages No:107 - 110]

   DOI: 10.5005/jp-journals-10033-1193  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

Objective

To determine the feasibility and efficacy of the laparoscopic myomectomy for large fibroids (>10 cm) with use of synchronous uterine artery embolization.

Design

A prospective observational case series of laparoscopic myomectomy performed for single and multiple uterine fibroids.

Setting

A tertiary referral center for gynecological oncology and minimal access surgery.

Population

A 15 premenopausal women with large fibroids who wished to conserve their uterus from March 2005 to August 2011.

Materials and methods

Laparoscopic myomectomy was performed using harmonic scalpel with synchronized preoperative uterine artery embolization (UAE) following multidisciplinary team discussion. Tissue retrieval was performed by morcellation.

Main outcome measures

Early discharge and reduced intraoperative blood loss.

Results

Of all 15 cases, mean number of fibroids removed was 2 (range: 1-4) and mean mass of tissue excised was 450 gm (range: 320-1540). The mean diameter of the fibroids removed was 13 cm (range: 10-20 cm). Mean estimated blood loss was 156 ml (range: 25-1,000 ml) and the mean operating time was 113 minutes (17-200 minutes). All cases were successfully completed laparoscopically with no conversions to open surgery. One patient who had a 13 cm broad ligament fibroid required a 2 unit blood transfusion intraoperatively and another patient developed a single port-site infection 2 weeks following the procedure. Histology confirmed benign leiomyomas in all cases.

Conclusion

Laparoscopic myomectomy with use of synchronized UAE using harmonic scalpel is feasible and efficient procedure for single or multiple large fibroids within an experienced multidisciplinary setting.
