Electrosurgery passes high-frequency (radio frequency) alternating polarity, electrical current through the subject. Electrosurgery is used cut, coagulate, desiccate, or fulgurate tissue. This requires a "dispersive electrode," commonly called a return electrode, to be placed on the subject's body. The return electrode disperses the current so that the desiccation is isolated to the focus area. Looking for a particular Bovie part number? Find the WPI part number of a Bovie instrument.
