Group A individuals were treated by cauterization with unipolar cautery
Conclusion: Monopolar cautery
though causes decreased intraoperative blood loss however requires longer anesthesia and causes significant post operative pain to the patient.
artifact interfered with accurate staging in 7/119 (6%) of cases.
The treatment choices adopted in the present report like surgical excision, electro cautery
After the turbinate is resected, suction cautery
can be used to coagulate the raw edge.
Rather than focusing on alternative methods, we maintain that preventive measures to minimise skin flap complications should reinforce basic surgical principles: avoiding skin closure under tension; ensuring adequate perfusion to the flaps by respecting the recommended thickness and length; and minimising the use of cautery
, which invariably leads to a degree of burn.
2], was the group of patients whose RA was harvested with ultrasonic cautery
and group U[C.
He said: "Sometimes the softpalate cautery
is done at the same time because it is not a particularly difficult operation and it has very few complications.
A retrospective cohort study audited recurrence rates in 408 patients (mean age 41 years, range 5 months to 90 years) whose pyogenic granulomas were treated with either surgical excision or combinations of curettage, shave, and cautery
However, newer technology in the form of nasal endoscopes and bipolar nasal cautery
probes potentially permits the localisation and cauterisation of the bleeding site in an awake patient in an outpatient setting.
There was a threefold increase in complications in patients who were American Society of Anesthesiologists class III, compared with class I or II patients; a fivefold increase in patients who took warfarin, compared with those who used aspirin or NSAIDs; and a fivefold increase for a polyp removed with cautery
Patients were crossed over to cautery
if bleeding lasted more than 15 minutes or if there was more than 100 mL of blood loss.
