Publication Digest: High-energy devices in different surgical settings: lessons learnt from a full health technology assessment report developed by SICE (Società Italiana di Chirurgia Endoscopica)
MTRC shares the most relevant and impactful publications in the field of market access and HEOR for medical technologies in Europe through its Publications Digest. In a recent publication, Vettoretto et al. conducted a Health Technology Assessment in Italy to evaluate the potential benefits of high-energy devices (HEDs) compared to standard monopolar or bipolar devices in various surgical settings.
