There are devices that apply energy to cut, coagulate, and desiccate the tissue with minimal bleeding and by overcoming the hindrance of laparoscopy facilitate minimal access surgery. The inappropriate utilization of electrosurgical devices may expand horrible morbidity and mortality. The present article surveys different electrosurgical sources as far as their basic uses and safe practices.
The aim of this review is to discuss about various types of available energy sources, their biophysics, their tissue effects, and complications. It also emphasizes the advantages and disadvantages of these electrosurgical devices and the need for learning required with them.
Materials and methods
With the end goal of this review, a general pursuit was led through NCBI, SpringerLink, and Google. Articles depicting laparoscopic or minimally access surgeries utilizing single or different energy sources were considered, in addition to articles contrasting different marketed energy devices in lab settings. Keywords, such as laparoscopy, vitality, laser, electrosurgery, monopolar, bipolar, harmonic, ultrasonic, and difficulties were utilized as a part of the search.
The authors in this review of the literature likewise accentuate on the unprejudiced learning of all the energy devices before using them. It also shows that the performance of the energy devices depends upon the type of effect needed. There is no accord as to which device is ideal for a given purpose. The specialized expertise level of the specialist and the learning about the device are both critical variables in choosing safe results.
To defeat the deceptions of laparoscopic hemostasis and cutting, electrosurgery has turned out as an imaginative innovation. It has made the life of an expert simple. Be that as it may, everything accompanies its own burdens. Electrosurgery also has its own disadvantages and complexities. The utilization of electrosurgery ought to be constrained just for spots where essential. An expert ought to try to know totally about the device he/she is utilizing and ought not to be driven by marketing companies.
