In ancient times, fire was used for treating various diseases. This study aimed to analyze the history of surgical cautery. A comprehensive search was conducted in international databases, including PubMed, Medical Journal, Google Scholar, Science Direct, Iran Medex, and Scientific Information Database (SID), to access the relevant studies and Persian Medicine text books. Studies reported the use of surgical cautery in different cultures and ancient times. In the past, basic heating tools were used; however, nowadays, electrocautery devices are being used by doctors. Over time, the change in the appearance of the cautery has changed both the energy required to heat the device and the burn hazards of using the device.
