The purpose of this single centre study is to evaluate whether the use of Harmonic Synergy Dissecting Hook (Harmonic Scalpel) in breast reconstruction surgery is superior to conventional d...
The objective of this study is to compare the results of total thyroidectomy using the new harmonic scalpel device (FOCUS) to that with the previously available harmonic scalpel device (HA...
In an effort to elucidate whether the Harmonic Scalpel will improve sealing lymphatics and decrease lymphatic drainage thereby decreasing the length of time that chest tubes are required a...
Ultrasonic cutting-coagulation devices (UCCD) are surgical instruments which use ultrasonic energy to cut through and coagulate tissue. An Ethicon version (trademarked "Harmonic Scalpel" a...
The objective of this study is to compare scalpel vs. diathermy in abdominal wall incision in pregnant patients undergoing repeat elective cesarean delivery.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the harmonic scalpel compared to the conventional technique in patients submitted to total thyroidectomy.
We retrospectively evaluated the results of Harmonic Scalpel (Ethicon, Cincinnati, Ohio) used for laparoscopic decortication of simple renal cysts (SRC). Between May 2011 and December 2014, 28 patient...
The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes associated with the use of a novel monopolar scalpel with those associated with the use of an ultrasonic scalpel for cervical conization of cervical i...
To compare wound healing performed with cold blade (CSB) and ultrasonic harmonic scalpel (UHS) in the abdominal aponeurosis of rats.
The THUNDERBEAT (TB) is a relatively novel energy device that is used in laparoscopic colorectal resection (LCR), which integrates both ultrasonic and bipolar energy. There are limited data on its use...
A microscopic imaging technique that takes advantage of the process of harmonic generation that occurs when photons interact to generate new photons of a different wavelength. In second harmonic generation, two photons of the same wavelength and frequency, such as from a LASER, interact inside a medium and are converted to a photon of twice the frequency and half of the wavelength of the two incident photons. The light signals captured are used to produce images that are dependent on the unique optical properties of the material.
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)
Procedures using an electrically heated wire or scalpel to treat hemorrhage (e.g., bleeding ulcers) and to ablate tumors, mucosal lesions, and refractory arrhythmias. It is different from ELECTROSURGERY which is used more for cutting tissue than destroying and in which the patient is part of the electric circuit.
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
The induction of local hyperthermia by either short radio waves or high-frequency sound waves.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
