The Clinical Usefulness of the LigaSure™ Small Jaw in Axillary Lymph Node Dissection in Patients with Breast Cancer.

Abstract The LigaSure™ small jaw (LS-SJ) multifunctional tissue sealing system is mainly used in cervical operations. We aimed to evaluate the clinical efficacy of the LS-SJ in axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) in comparison to the conventional method.

AB  - BACKGROUND: The LigaSure small jaw (LS-SJ) multifunctional tissue sealing system 
      is mainly used in cervical operations. We aimed to evaluate the clinical efficacy
      of the LS-SJ in axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) in comparison to the
      conventional method. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety-two patients with breast cancer
      who underwent total mastectomy and ALND were included in this study. The patients
      were divided into the LS-SJ group (n=43) and the conventional-ALND (c-ALND) group
      (n=49). RESULTS: Patients with high body mass index values had a greater drainage
      volume and longer time to drain removal. The drainage volume was in the LS-SJ
      group was significantly lower than that in the c-ALND group. The time to drain
      removal and the hospitalization period were also significantly shorter in the
      LS-SJ group. The LS-SJ was more effective for ALND in obese patients. CONCLUSION:
      The results suggest the clinical usefulness of LS-SJ in ALND in patients with
      breast cancer, especially in obese patients.
