The use of electrocautery is universal in modern day surgery. Through decades electrocautery has reformed from larger electrodes to smaller ones. The latest modification is the micro-dissection cautery with a fine electrode tip. We have modified the electrocautery tip to replicate the usage of micro dissection-cautery using readily available, low cost disposable needle. The idea is to replicate the benefits of micro-dissection needle with a low cost construct which can be learned easily, used widely to provide optimum surgical results to the wider sections of the society. A video demonstration for creation of the micro-dissection cautery construct is also demonstrated.
