Abstract

Summary Argon enhanced coagulation is now available for laparoscopic utilization. Despite widespread acceptance and popularity for open surgical procedures, the safety and efficacy of the argon beam coagulatorfor laparoscopic procedures is unknown. We report a preliminary study on argon enhanced coagulation during complex reconstructive genito-urinary procedures in a canine model. The safety, utility, and tissue effects from laparoscopic argon enhanced coagulation during 12 radical prostatectomies and four augmentation cystoplasties comprise the study. Gross and histological examination of anastomoses/suture lines following microsurgical reconstruction are analysed.
