Background: Bipolar vessel sealing systems (BVSS) are accepted to be safe and efficacious
with possible advantages over conventional methods, namely fewer requirement of postoperative
analgesics, less blood loss, shorter operative time and minimum hospital stay.
Objectives: To compare the efficacy and safety between use of BiClamp (Bipolar
Coagulation Forceps) in Vaginal Hysterectomy and Conventional Vaginal Hysterectomy.
Materials and Methods: This prospective study was done among 80 cases indicating
hysterectomy for benign diseases admitted in OBGY unit were selected randomly out of
which 40 cases underwent Conventional Vaginal Hysterectomy and 40 cases underwent
BiClamp Vaginal Hysterectomy at department of obstetrics & Gynecology in Government
medical college and hospital, Latur during November 2012 to September 2014.
Results: Mean duration of hospital stay required for participants of cases and control group
was 2.6 days and 4.2 days respectively (p<0.05). Mean duration of operation of cases and
control group participants was 70.9 min and 75.5 min respectively (p<0.05). Mean blood loss
during operation noted among the cases and control group participants was 90.1 ml and 115.9
ml respectively (p<0.05). During operation, three suture material required in in 0.0%
participants of cases group and 82.5% of control group respectively (p<0.05). Post- op
complications like fever, bladder injury, bowel injury & hemorrhage noted only in
participants of control group.
Conclusion: BiClamp Vaginal Hysterectomy post-operative pain was less, intraoperative
blood loss was less, operative time was significantly shorter, duration of hospital stay was
less and BiClamp Vaginal Hysterectomy was more Cost effective than the Conventional
Vaginal Hysterectomy
