7th April - Randomized double-blind trial comparing the cosmetic outco ... (Thread closed)

It raises some interesting points that could lead to exciting prospects, but as stated by other people here and the authors, it needs further evidence with a larger cohort before it can be adopted into clinical practice

The point about increased safety in the conclusion was a relevant one

I thought that was more of a theoretical point. Whereas the data in the paper showed that diathermy was simply the same as the scalpel. Compounded by what was said earlier about haemastasis, it is a significant jump to recommend it as being 'safer'

I think everyone has made insightful and helpful comments. For me I dont think this paper would change very much. The evidence of reduced post op pain is weak, and so it comes down to surgeon preference and I think the authors will have a hard time convincing a lot of surgeons that diathermy does not burn the skin

I agree Daniel, thanks for facilitating the discussion and thanks Scalpel for organising this, it has been really interesting!

I meant safety for the surgeons using the equipment (lack of sharps). Thanks everyone for an insightful exercise!
