Abstract

Aim: Both LigaSure (LS) and Harmonic Scalpel (HS) are new surgical technologies that have been used to secure hemostasis in various fields of surgery. There is little information in the literature about the use of LS and HS in thyroid surgery. The aim of this study was to report our experience with LS and HS in thyroid surgery.
