ATAIDE, Michelli Westphal de et al. Laparoscopic-assisted or open ovariohysterectomy using Ligasure atlas in dogs. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2010, vol.40, n.9, pp.1974-1979. Epub 01-Out-2010. ISSN 1678-4596. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782010005000158.
In this study the authors compared two different procedures of ovariosalpingohysterectomy (OSH) in dogs. For that, 18 dogs were randomly assigned into 2 different groups: group I (GI) in which the OSH was performed by celiotomy and group II (GII) in which it was a video-assisted procedure using two portals positioned in the umbilical and pre pubic regions, under dorsal recumbence position. In both groups the method of hemostasis was the Ligasure atlas®. The authors did not observe significant differences between both methods for the surgical time or complications during and after the surgical procedure and blood loss. It was concluded that OSH using video-assisted surgery with two portals and the conventional technique, both using Ligasure atlas® are safe, fast and effective to be used in dogs.
