Background: To explore the efficacy and safety of a new type of testicular excision with ultrasonic dissector.
Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on 69 patients with advanced prostate cancer undergoing orchiectomy in our hospital between June 2017 and June 2019. All patients were divided into a traditional surgery group (n = 27) and an ultrasonic scalpel surgery group (n = 42). The operation time, intraoperative blood loss, postoperative hospital stay and postoperative complication rates were compared.
Results: The ultrasonic scalpel surgery group had significantly shorter
operation times and less intraoperative blood loss than the traditional surgery
group (each P
Conclusions: The surgery time for testicular excision using the ultrasonic knife is short, the operation is simple and the complications are few and thus it may become a form of replacement for traditional testicular excision.
