Recently, we developed the new tool, which has a blade type scalpel at the tip of the Microtaze, and it can coagulate and cut at the same time. This improved Microtaze was used for theradical operation of the breast cancer, then comparison and examination was performed betweenthe used group and the non-used group of the new Microtaze.
The operation was able to finish with only some ligations by using this scalpel, and almostequal between the two groups in amount of bleeding and operation time. No peculiar complicationswere observed in the used group.
In future, this operation will be finished with less bleeding and less operation time. The new Microtaze will be used not only breast cancer but also various operations.
