FALLS CHURCH, VA--(Marketwire - August 15, 2008) - On Tuesday, September 23, 2008, John Elkas, MD of Inova Fairfax Hospital and Warner Huh, MD of the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital will lead a live webcast of a panel discussion on the various uses of the LigaSure Impact™ instrument and the Force TriVerse™ electrosurgical device during open hysterectomies complicated by the presence of cancer.

The doctors will review video footage of several cases performed by Dr. Elkas on June 2nd at Inova Fairfax hospital. These procedures feature multiple uses of the latest in tissue fusion and electrosurgical technology during gynecologic and oncologic procedures. "The instruments bring increased speed and efficiency to all my procedures at the same time giving me confidence in the hemostasis provided by the instruments. They are an essential part of my practice," says Dr. Elkas. "The fact that I can keep my focus on the operating field while activating and adjusting the power from the surgical field is a great safety feature."

There will be live webcasts at 18:00 CEST for the European audience as well as 7:00 PM EDT and 7:00 PM PDT for the eastern and western U.S. Audience members will be encouraged to email live questions to the doctors during webcasts.

These presentations are made possible by an educational grant from Covidien.
