The Thermal Safety Profile of a New Bipolar Vessel Sealing Device for Thyroid Surgery

Aman Prasad, BS, Medical Student; Jessica Durrant, MS, DVM; Daniel D. Smeak, DVM; Jason G. Newman, MD, Professor, Otorhinolaryngology

Bipolar electrocautery devices used to achieve intraoperative hemostasis carry risk of imparting thermal energy to adjacent tissue, leading to postoperative morbidity. The aim of this study was to compare a new vessel sealing device, the CoolSeal™ Reveal (Bolder Surgical, Louisville, Colorado), with an established industry standard device, the LigaSure™ Exact Dissector (Valleylab, Boulder, Colorado), to assess their safety and the extent to which they impart thermal damage to tissue during thyroid surgery.

Thoracoscopic L Thoracoscopic Lobectomy in Infants and Children

Steven S. Rothenberg, MD

Indications for pulmonary lobectomy in infants and children include cystic pulmonary adenomatoid mal- formation, congenital lobar emphysema, chronic infection, and malignancy. These procedures can now all be done thoracoscopically avoiding the short- and long-term morbidity of an open thoracotomy. In this article we describe the technique of thoracoscopic lobectomy as well as the preoperative and postoperative care.

Keywords: thoracoscopic, lobectomy, CPAM, bronchiectasis, infants, children, Trinity, Mini, 3 mm vessel sealer, 5 mm vessel sealer
