Objective. The quantum energy surgical device (QESD) employs an innovative, "no-touch" thermal coagulation, incision and evaporation technique in which thermal energy is delivered to tissue in the format of high-energy neutral argon gas atoms. The aim of this study is to compare QESD and bipolar coagulation (BC) through assessment of both haemostasis and histological damage to isolated femoral arteries of rats.
