Energy sources for laparoscopic surgery

  1. 1. Consultant - Dr.S.Easwaramoorthy MS FRCS (England)FRCS (Glasgow) FRCS (Edinburgh) Dept of Minimal Access Surgery Lotus Hospital, Erode Laparoscopic Energy Sources Points for Practice!
  2. 2. History of Energy Sources Harvey Cushing William Bovie 1928
  3. 3. Newer Energy Sources
  4. 4. Monopolar Electro surgeryMonopolar Electro surgery •Active Electrode •Return Pad Patient is part of the Circuit! Current Density
  5. 5. Tissue Response Generator Split return electrode pad Active Electrode Monitoring Voice Command System Argon Plasma Coagulation Advances in Electro surgeryAdvances in Electro surgery
  6. 6. Impedance Measurement
  7. 7. Factors Modifying the Tissue Effects Current Density Vs Tissue Impedance 1. Size of active electrode 2. Cut or Coagulation mode 3. Power setting 4. Duration of exposure 5. Tissue Impedance
  8. 8. Tissue Impedance Water Tank (Voltage) Flow of Water (Current) Outlet (Impedance)Ohm’s Law: I=V/R
  9. 9. Tissue Responsive Generators
  10. 10. Split Pad
  11. 11. RReturneturn EElectrodelectrode MMonitoringonitoring
  12. 12. Electrosurgical Injuries during Laparoscopy Electro surgical injuries are not always due to ‘Pilot’ error. Zone 1 Insulation Failure Conductive Coupling Capacitive Coupling
  13. 13. Insulation FailureInsulation Failure Zone 2 Injury
  14. 14. Prevention of Electrosurgical Injuries Active Electrode Monitoring Insuloscope
  15. 15. Bipolar Diathermy
