This key lecture authored by Professor Didier Mutter was given during the last advanced course in operative gynecological endoscopy at the IRCAD Strasbourg last May 14-16, 2012. Professor Mutter, MD, PhD, FACS, describes the new energy devices, which can be used in laparoscopic surgery. A good knowledge of energy is essential for security reasons as well as for an adequate use of the different devices available. Clinical applications are combined with theoretical notions to promote a good understanding of all energy devices.
