  Purpose

There are many instruments with different energy modalities or with different properties that are available for use in total laparoscopic hysterectomy. The aim of the present study is to compare three of these instruments that are present in our clinic - HALO PKS Cutting Forceps, LigaSure and Enseal Tissue Sealer, in total laparoscopic hysterectomy with respect to operation time, blood loss, change in hemoglobin / hematocrit levels, perioperative complications, return of gastrointestinal activity and hospitalization time.
