Objective: To investigate the effect of wound healing by using high-frequency electrotome in the operation of breast cancer.Methods: From December 2003 to September 2004,30 patients with breast cancer were treated with high-frequency electrotome in operation and 30 patients with breast cancer were not treated with the same method. Then the drainage liquid, the cut recovery rate in phase I,necrosis rate of skin flap, hematocele rate of subcutis and days for hospitalization were observed. Results:The drainage liquid and rate of subcutaneous hematocele were higher in the experiment group than that in the control group (P0.05),so was necrosis rate of skin flap (P0.05). Recovery rate of phase I cut was lower in the experiment group than that in the control group (P0.05).Conclusion:High-frequency electrotome can increase necrosis rate of skin flap, drainage liquid, rate of subcutaneous hematocele, days of hospitalization and reduce the recovery rate of phase I cut in the operation of brease cancer.
