ORLive Presents: Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Using Electrosurgery Procedure: Features the ForceTriad™ Energy Platform

Live Webcast: September 20, 2007 7:00 PM EDT (23:00 UTC)

DURHAM, NC--(Marketwire - August 14, 2007) - On September 20th, Dr. Craig Sobolewski and Dr. Jeffrey Wilkinson from Duke University Health System will present a panel discussion of a total laparoscopic hysterectomy performed by Dr. Sobolewski at Durham Regional Hospital, Durham, NC.

The event will occur at 5 pm GMT for the European audience, and again at 7 pm EDT for the American audience.

Before the procedure, Dr. Sobolewski will discuss the advantages of using electrosurgical technology during a total laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery, "We'll be using the Ligasure™ System for vessel sealing. We believe this is the optimal choice as it provides secure efficient seals and does so in a reliable way each time. For the majority of our fine dissection we use standard unipolar technologies and technique and have found that the ForceTriad™ Energy Platform for electrosurgery has allowed us to do this in a very efficient manner."

Dr. Sobolewski and Dr.Wilkinson will also accept live email questions from both the European and American audiences after the procedure.

The program is made possible by an educational grant from Covidien (formerly Valleylab).
