Abstract

The ongoing desire to improve hemostasis and efficiency during surgery is manifested in the rapid development of electrosurgical technology. These changes have brought about a wide variety of devices available to the practicing surgeon during both open and endoscopic cases. Depending on the instrument chosen, various clinical effects ranging from simple coagulation to the sealing of large vascular bundles are obtained. However potential pitfalls or complications also exist. A thorough understanding of the pros and cons of these technological advancements can improve the operative experience for both surgeon and patient.
