Importance of Using Electrosurgical Units (ESU) in Surgical Operation

Electrosurgery generator units (ESU)

The concept of using heat as a form of therapy and treatment to stop bleeding has been used for centuries. This was initially known as thermal cautery where tissues were burnt by thermal heat, including steam or hot metal with the intention of destroying damaged or diseased tissue to prevent infections and reduce bleeding.

An electrocautery is the simplest means of stopping blood. These electrocauteries burned tissues using a platinum wire heated by an electric current. Due to their function, they were used only for coagulation.

The term electrosurgery (also called radiofrequency surgery) refers to the passage of high-frequency alternating electrical current through the tissue in order to achieve a specific surgical effect. Although the mechanism behind electrosurgery is not completely understood, heat production and thermal tissue damage is responsible for at least the majority–if not all–of the tissue effects in electrosurgery.

Electrosurgery uses high voltage and high frequency alternating current (AC) and the electrosurgical circuit is composed of an electrical generator or Electrosurgery generator units (ESUs), an active electrode, the patient and a return electrode. Current enters the body because it is included in the circuit and biological tissue provides impedance which results in heat production as the electrons try to overcome this resistance.

Due to needs according to importance of electro surgery mentioned above, Cavendish System Engineering Company, by designing and producing a wide range of electrosurgery devices, has solved the needs of physicians and surgeons for these products.

Kavandish System successfully designed and manufactured the first Iranian-made Electrosurgical Unit. This ESU met the rigorous requirements of international standards and has been approved by the most renowned Iranian surgeons and clinics. Today, company growth to over 50 employees is a testimony to the validity of KavandishSystem's original ambitious goals.
Kavandish is now focused primarily on further expansion and internationalization of the company. Attracting top quality scientists and engineers has assisted Kavandish on its way towards that expansion and internationalization.

Kavandish System was established in 1995. Today, Kavandish is a well-known science-based company in the field of electronics in general and medical devices in particular with a wide range of the most up-to-date HF Electrosurgical Units (ESU) to meet all requirements of modern surgery and owns close to 70% of national market and focusing on growth of 20% export revenue. Innovation, experience, enthusiasm, integrity, commitment, team spirit and professionalism are the key values which shape us as Kavandish System.
