We evaluated hand-off patterns for nursing staff during two common operations hypothesizing that hand-off patterns would be associated with increased surgical miscounts and vary during operations performed standard versus nonstandard operating hours.

Methods: We retrospectively analyzed laparoscopic cholecystectomy (N = 3888) and appendectomy (N = 1768) from 2012 to 2021 at a single institution using electronic medical records. Read More

Comparison of the Electrothermal Bipolar Sealing System (LigaSure) Versus Endoloop in Pediatric Laparoscopic Appendectomy.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2022 Jul 19. Epub 2022 Jul 19.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Harran University, Şanlıurfa, Turkey.

Laparoscopic appendectomy has long been in the process of replacing open appendectomy owing to a better wound healing, better cosmetic appearance, less pain, and less postoperative adhesion. Although there are many methods for ligating the appendix stump, studies on energy-based coagulation methods have attracted great interest in recent years. In our study, we aimed to compare the use of LigaSure™ appendiceal sealing and ligation of appendiceal stump by endoloop with regard to duration of surgery, length of hospital stay, and complications in laparoscopic appendectomies.
