Abstract

This assessment of a new hemostatic scalpel in plastic surgery is based on one surgeon's personal experience with this instrument in 348 cases representing a variety of procedures. With its improved hemostatic capabilities the hemostatic scalpel may offer the following advantages: better visualization of the surgical field, enhanced precision, and more delicate control. Considerable time and experience are necessary, however, before the scalpel can be used safely and competently.
