Some of the newer instruments have the ability to both cut and cauterize
tissue, providing a surgeon with the control of a scalpel in the same instrument that can also cauterize
to control bleeding.
2] laser at 10 ms, 2 W, and 30 m] defocused was used to cauterize
the small peripheral vasculature.
According to Lewis, his technology could lead to such innovations as cell phone-size devices that military medics could carry to cauterize
bleeding wounds, or dental machines to enable the body to instantly absorb locally injected anesthetic.
Sometimes the doctor will cauterize
your nose, which involves having bleeding vessels sealed with chemical solution or a heating device.

Procedure time is greatly reduced not only because of the long seal length but also because surgeons do not have to reseal and cauterize

A look ahead at military medicine of the future, including an ultrasound system for combat units that would locate and cauterize
internal wounds -- a device being tested for DARPA by Stanford faculty and researchers.
Doctors who perform ``bloodless'' operations do so through the use of surgical instruments which, in some cases, cauterize
as they cut; medications that slow bleeding and promote clotting; cell saver or ``blood recycler'' machines; and operating techniques like minimal-access surgery.
Only about 15 percent of cases of wet macular degeneration are treatable using the only current technology available--laser light to cauterize
the rogue vessels to stanch the flow.
The surgeon also has to cauterize
