method for the laparoscopic intestinal anastomosis model using a new computerized system," Surgical Endoscopy, vol.
The average perioperative drop in HB% was 1.65gm% with LigaSure and 2.3gm% in conventional suture ligature
group, which is statistically significant (P value = 0.725).
Randomized study of bipolar vessel sealing system versus conventional suture ligature
for vaginal hysterectomy.
A vaginal exam is then performed to ensure that the suture ligature
is above the level of the vaginal fornices.
(25) If identification of the bleeding point is difficult, percutaneous placement of a suture ligature
over a roll of gauze or using a Foley catheter to tamponade the bleeder can be helpful.
This was controlled with a clamp and suture ligatures
." Despite all efforts, the patient suffered ischemic encephalopathy and never regained consciousness.
