Colon cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the large intestine (colon). The colon is the final part of the digestive tract. Colon cancer typically affects older adults, though it can happen at any age.
Treatment for colon cancer usually involves surgery to remove the cancer. Other treatments, such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy, might also be recommended.
Today, doctors use two approaches for colon cancer surgery: Open surgery and minimally invasive surgery. Open surgery is the conventional approach, using an abdominal incision, and may require a longer hospital stay. Minimally invasive surgery is performed using laparoscopic or robotic tools, this surgery requires a smaller incision and allows for a quicker recovery.
The ultrasonic scalpel is a surgical instrument that uses ultrasonic energy to cut and coagulate tissue. It is used in colon cancer surgery to remove the cancerous part of the colon while cutting through the tissue and sealing blood vessels at the same time. The use of an ultrasonic scalpel has several advantages including less bleeding, less pain, and faster recovery time.
SurgSci ultrasonic scalpel has the following advantages:
1. Reduce adhesion, eschar, and smoke, and obtain a clear surgical field of vision.
2. It integrates separation, cutting and coagulation to save operation time.
3. One operation can cut and coagulate blood vessels or tissue bundles with a diameter of 5mm.
4. The operation efficiency is higher, the speed is faster, the trauma is small, and the hemostatic effect is good.
