Surglcel ® Reinforced Resection Lines in Left-sided Hepatectomy with Linear Stapling Device. An Experimental Study on Pigs

By Thomas Zilling and Torsten Holmin


Fourteen pigs underwent left-sided hepatectomy. The resection was performed with a linear stapling device and the pigs were randomised to either Surgicel ® reinforced resection lines or not. The median time required for resection was 25 min (range 17-30) in the Surgicel® reinforced group compared to 30 min (range 21-41) in the stapled group. This difference was, however, not statistically significant (p=0.053)
