The rats were anesthetized with ketamine on the first day (100 mg/kg), when electrocauterization
of the vertebral artery was done.
This study shows that diluted vasopressin may decrease operation time and electrocauterization
frequency during laparoscopic stripping of ovarian endometriomas; however, the difference between case and control groups was not statistically significant.
Several treatments including surgery, cryotherapy, electrocauterization
, laser or topical agents all focus on eradicating the lesions; however, the treatment strategy can vary depending on the disease location, severity, and the patients immune status .
4) Possible treatment modalities have been reported, including surgical excision, laser ablation, cryotherapy, electrocauterization
, interferon, and retinoic acid.
PATIENT'S CLAIM The ObGyn used excessive electrocauterization
during the first operation, leading to fistula development.
Recurrent complete heart block in a healthy patient during laparoscopic electrocauterization
of the fallopian tube.
is a process by which tissue is burnt using heat conduction from a metal probe heated by electric current.
Severe acanthosis or pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia can lead to the development of unusually large lesions which should be treated with electrocauterization
, cryotherapy or surgical excision.
The skin lesions were refractory to con-ventional therapies, including cryotherapy, electrocauterization
, and topical retinoids.
Some authors describe conservative treatments such as carbon dioxide laser excision, knife excision, cryotherapy, radiotherapy, electrocauterization
, internal artery ligation, uterine artery embolization, local excision, conization, and laser ablation.
