Abstract

Two new prototype probes, BICAP® and Heater, were assessed to determine their effectiveness in controlling post-biopsy bleeding during laparoscopy. A total of 88 patients with a wide spectrum of liver diseases were studied. Both probes were equally effective in stopping bleeding in all patients. We recommend the use of either of these devices in controlling post-biopsy bleeding.
