The use of electrosurgery (also referred to as radiosurgery) is a type of surgery that uses electrical currents in order to perform the surgery. This type of surgery dates back to more than 100 years. For over five decades, different reviews have been conducted in the field of electrosurgery. This has led to a dramatic increase in interest in electrosurgery, resulting to an incredible intervention in microvascular surgery that has provoked the most noteworthy use of radio frequency instruments. The controlled and exact use of these radio frequency electrical current on delicate tissue sites to be cut is accomplished by methods for deliberately composed anodes. This is a persistently advancing field with dynamic research going on in various new applications. There are different sorts of surgery, which can be delivered with high recurrence instruments such as Diathermy, Bipolar, and Monopolar. This paper performs a systematic review by extracting information from a wide variety of research papers in electrosurgery topics. The purpose of a systematic review is to classify and categorize the field of electrosurgery in an unbiased way, listing the current existing trends in electrosurgery, can lead to the classification and understanding of electrosurgery as a whole, and to predict the future direction of the field by analyzing the research interest over the last couple of years.
