English term or phrase: Bovie pad
Hello,

a "Bovie pad" is part of a medical device used to extract intestinal polyps by electrical coagulation and cutting.What would be the most appropriate German term? Could it be translated as "Bovie-Elektrode"?
Thanks a lot for any suggestions!

Neutralelektrode
Explanation:
From the given context this is IMO the pad which is fixed directly on the patient (lower back or thigh), the "patient return electrode" or Neutralelektrode.

These are sold today as Einmal-Neutralelektroden for single use only.
