TUDURY, E.A. et al. Hemostasis and incision into the ovary pedicle of cats undergone elective ovariosalpingohysterectomy using the technique of the three bipolar forceps or eletrobisturi. Comparative study. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2014, vol.66, n.5, pp.1427-1434. ISSN 0102-0935.

In ovariosalpingohisterectomy (OSH) surgery, there are several techniques for hemostasis and resection of ovarian pedicle, the most common being the three tweezers technique. The bipolar eletrobisturi can be used effectively for hemostasis and cutting tissue. The aim of this research was to compare, in cats, hemostasis and resection of ovarian pedicle eletrobisturi with bipolar forceps and the three techniques, both via median celiotomy, in relation to time and surgical hemostatic efficiency (hematocrit). Forty cats aged six months to seven years, weighing between 1.68 and 4.14kg, underwent hemostasis and pedicle of this section, 20 with the conventional technique and 20 with eletrobisturi bipolar. Statistical analysis showed that the use of bipolar eletrobisturi generates a significant decrease in the mean duration of surgery when compared with a method without differences in hematocrit comparing pre-and post-surgery. Through the multiple regression model we found that the variables age, weight, number of pregnancies, number of births and number of cycles did not significantly influence the time. We conclude, therefore, that the bipolar eletrobisturi is efficient and fast for hemostasis and dieresis ovarian pedicle of cats undergoing elective ovariohysterectomy.
