No prospective evaluation of surgical smoke evacuation systems has yet been conducted anywhere
in the world. A prospective randomized study was conducted to clarify the usefulness of a surgical smoke

reducing the occupational exposure of doctors and nurses involved in surgical procedures to surgical smoke,
volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde, etc.
