Electrocautery is a medical procedure that uses a high-frequency electrical current to cut, coagulate, or remove tissue. This technique is commonly employed in various medical specialties, including dermatology, surgery, and gynecology. Electrocautery is particularly useful for procedures that require precision and control over bleeding.
Here’s how electrocautery treatment typically works:
Electrocautery involves the use of an electrocautery machine, which delivers a high-frequency alternating current. The current passes through a metal electrode, generating heat.
The heat generated by the electrode is used to target specific tissues. Depending on the medical procedure, the objective may be to cut through tissue, coagulate blood vessels to reduce bleeding, or remove unwanted growths or lesions.
In dermatology, electrocautery is often utilized for:
In gynecology, electrocautery may be used during procedures such as:
