1. Electrocautery direct current through a high resistance metallic conductor.
2. It is essentially application of heat and burning of tissues.
3. This method uses unipolar cautery.
4. Heat generated by cautery is used for cutting of tissue.
5. Temperature – 150 to 400degree Celsius.
Precaution to use:
1. Prevent damage to posterior pillar and phargnged mucosa- Noosa phargnged stenosis.
2. Avoid contact between metal instrument and electrocautery.
3. Electrocautery blade should be guarded with a non conducting material.
