Comparison of the safety of energy based devices in thyroid surgery

Bartu Badak, Fezan Sahin Mutlu.

Abstract
Background: Thyroid surgeries are one of the most commonly performed surgeries all over the world. Energy based devices have become more popular in thyroid surgery in recent years. This study designed to compare the effectiveness and safety of energy based devices versus conventional techniques in thyroid surgery.

Methods: 120 patients who underwent thyroid surgery (bilaterally total thyroidectomy, bilaterally total thyroidectomy+santral lymph node dissection, bilaterally total thyroidectomy+modified radically lymph node dissection) in recent last year divided into three groups. Group 1 has been identified for patients who underwent these operations with using ‘Ligasure’, group 2 with ‘Harmonic Scalpel’, and group 3 with ‘electrotome’. These 3 groups compared versus conventional clamp and tie method (group 4) according to operation time, postoperation hemostasis control, postoperation (48. hour) Ca, PTH levels and preoperative maximal T.A value. Ligasure technique is named as group A, Harmonic is named as group B, electrotome is named as group C and conventional technique is group D.
Results: There are differences among the 4 groups in term of parameters as hospital, stay, peroperative tension levels, posoperative Ca and PTH levels, postoperative drainage except for parameter of operation time.
Conclusion: In our thyroid surgeries it’s clear that operation time is similar between all groups, postoperative drainage and homeostasis control is less and more comfortable in group A (ligasure) according to others and the hospital stay time is shorter in group A. Postoperative Ca, PTH levels are lower in group A according to group D.

Key words: Thyroid, surgery, comparison, energy based devices
