ADMIRE SURGICAL ’s Electrosurgical surgery, also known as electrocautery or diathermy, involves the use of electrical currents to cut, coagulate, or ablate tissue during surgical procedures. Various instruments are used in electrosurgery to achieve these goals. Here are some of the common instruments used:

  1. Electrodes: Electrodes are the tips or points of contact through which the electrical current is delivered to the tissue. Different types of electrodes are used for cutting (active electrode) and coagulating (dispersive electrode or return electrode) functions.
  2. Electrosurgical Pencils or Handpieces: These are handheld devices that surgeons use to control the application of the electrical current. They often include buttons or switches to toggle between cutting and coagulation modes.
  3. Electrosurgical Forceps: These specialized forceps have integrated electrodes and are used to grasp and manipulate tissue while simultaneously delivering the electrical current for cutting or coagulation.
  4. Bipolar Forceps: Unlike standard electrosurgical forceps, bipolar forceps have two electrodes close together at the tips. They are used for precise coagulation without the risk of electrical current traveling through the patient’s body.
  5. Electrosurgical Cautery Pen: These pens are used for precise cutting and coagulation in small areas or during delicate procedures.
  6. Monopolar and Bipolar Cables: These cables connect the electrosurgical handpiece or pencil to the electrosurgical generator. Monopolar cables connect the active electrode, while bipolar cables connect the bipolar forceps or other bipolar instruments.
  7. Footswitch: Surgeons often use a footswitch to control the activation of the electrosurgical unit, allowing them to focus on the surgical field without needing to manipulate the generator directly.
