Hemostasis with a Bipolar Sealer During Surgical Correction of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis¹

During posterior spinal fusion surgery for deformity, this study showed a significant decrease in estimated blood loss in the bipolar sealer group whether measured in total (435 ± 192mL, compared with 1009 ± 392 mL in the control group; p < 0.001) or per level fused (39 ± 17 mL, compared with 95 ± 33 mL in the control group; p < 0.001). In turn, this decreased blood loss resulted in a significantly reduced risk of transfusion (p = 0.014).
