Study Finds Starion Instruments' Tissue Welding Technology Reduces Pain and Bleeding in Tonsillectomy Patients
Date:11/6/2007

served. In addition, patients in the tissue welding group showed a general trend toward lower pain scores, with the difference being statistically significant from the first to the fourth post-operative days (p < .05). Tissue welding demonstrated the greatest improvement in pain over cold dissection on the first post-operative day; a difference of 2.3 points on a 10-point scale.

Stavroulaki and her team also noted that Starion's tissue welding forceps are easy to handle without the need for special training. Since they are disposable, the forceps eliminate the risk of transmitting variant Creutzfeld-Jakob disease, which may exist with reusable instruments.

According to the researchers, tissue welding tonsillectomy "is a new innovation that appears to provide a valuable addition to our surgical armamentarium for reducing the postoperative morbidity that is usually experienced after total tonsillectomy." Furthermore, the results "provide evidence that patients treated with the tissue welding tonsillectomy may experience improved quality of recovery." Moving forward, they will investigate postoperative morbidity after tissue welding tonsillectomy in pediatric patients.
