To investigate the clinical value of Ligasure vessel sealing system (LVSS) in haemorrhoidectomy.
From December 2002 to November 2003, clinical data of 36 cases undergoing haemorrhoidectomy with LVSS were compared with those of 30 cases undergoing traditional operation,considering visual analogue scale(VAS), hospital time,operation time,hospital expenses,postoperative complication.
There were no significant differences in hospital expenses,postoperative complications between the two groups,but the postoperative pain scores of Ligasure haemorrhoidectomy was better than that of traditional operation. The hospital stay and operation time of Ligasure haemorrhoidectomy were shorter than those of the traditional operation.
Ligasure vessel sealing system has more advantages such as less pain, safety, facility to perform, and a shorter operation time.
