The purpose

To compare harmonic scalpel with electrocautery for outcomes i.e. estimated blood loss (EBL), operating time, drain Volume and drain Days, seroma formation, surgical site infection and postoperative pain in adult females undergoing MRM at a tertiary care hospital. We hypothesized that harmonic yields better outcome than electrocautery dissection.

Provided treatments

  • Device: Harmonic
  • Procedure: electrocautery
