electrosection

a method of electrosurgery used to incise or excise tissue, which employs a slightly damped, modulated undamped, or undamped alternating electrical current, and requires both an active concentrating electrode and an inactive dispersing electrode. Called also electroresection. See also electrosurgery.

The four basic types of electrosurgical techniques are electrosection, electrocoagulation, electrofulguration, electrodesiccation.
Electrosection, also referred to as electrotomy or acusection, is used for incisions, exisions, and tissue planing.
The active electrodes used for coagulation are much bulkier than the fine tungsten wire used for electrosection.
The heat generated by electrosurgery depends on the duration of contact between the electrode tip and tissue, current intensity, size of tip and electrosection wave current.
