Abstract

Background: Most of the complications of thyroid operations are related to ligation and coagulation procedures. LigaSure(R) is an alternative method for vessel sealing and ligation and may decrease operative complications. This study analyzed the effect of LigaSure(R) use on duration of operation and on complication occurrence, compared to that of conventional methods.
