    Abstract

    Purpose: The aim of this study is to compare bipolar radiofrequency-driven vessel sealer, bipolar electrocautery, polyglactin 910 sutures, and endoclips in appendiceal stump closure with respect to operative time, appendiceal stump strength, and inflammation in a rat appendiceal model. Methods: Forty-eight Wistar-Albino rats, which had previously created appendicitis, were divided into 2 (groups A and B). Each group was further subdivided into 4 subgroups (AL, ABPC, AC, AS, BL, BBPC, BC, and BS) each containing 6 rats. An appendectomy was performed, and the stump was closed by bipolar radiofrequency-driven vessel sealer in the L, bipolar electrocautery in the BPC, endoclips in the C, and ligatures in the S subgroups. Cecum bursting pressures were determined instantly after the operation in group A and on the seventh postoperative day in group B. All operative times were measured. Appendices and appendiceal stumps underwent histopathologic examination. Statistical analyses were performed with Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney U tests. P
