Abstract

Various energy sources are available for tissue dissection and vessel sealing in laparoscopic colorectal surgery. The electrothermal bipolar vessel sealing system (EBVS) and ultrasonic energy (UE) devices are widely used to provide hemostatic dissection in laparoscopic procedures. Nevertheless, available evidenced-based data comparing their operative results still are scarce. This study conducted a metaanalysis of controlled clinical trials comparing EBVS and UE in terms of operative time and intraoperative blood losses in laparoscopic colorectal surgery.
