Keyhole surgery could be the most efficient procedure for ruptured aneurysm

Keyhole surgery could be the most efficient procedure for ruptured aneurysm
The use of keyhole surgery to repair ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm is both clinically and cost effective and should be adopted more widely, concludes a randomised trial published by The BMJ. This is the first randomised trial comparing the use of keyhole (endovascular) aneurysm repair versus traditional open surgery to repair ruptured aneurysm, with full midterm follow-up.

microMend: a time-saving wound closure device

microMend: a time-saving wound closure device
Sutures and staples are the usual options for closing wounds postoperatively, but they can be painful and require surgical skills. The microMend Skin Closure Device, produced by Seattle-based KitoTech Medical, has provided an alternative. The design of the microMend is conceptually similar to a bandage, like Steri-Strip. The device is made of a thin adhesive backing with two arrays of tiny “microstaples” on either side.

AR glasses improve operations on tumours

AR glasses improve operations on tumours
Malignant tumours often form metastases that spread to other parts of the body via the lymphatic system. High surgical skills are required to identify the precise location of the affected lymph nodes, enabling them to be completely removed. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a navigation aid that simplifies such interventions. 3D-ARILE is an AR system that superimposes a virtual image of the exact position of the lymph nodes using data glasses.

World’s first super-microsurgery operation with ‘robot hands’

World’s first super-microsurgery operation with ‘robot hands’
Plastic surgeons at Maastricht UMC+ have used a robotic device to surgically treat lymphedema in a patient. This is the world’s first super-microsurgical intervention with ‘robot hands’. The surgeons used the robotic device to suture vessels of 0.3 to 0.8 millimeter in the arm of the patient. The robotic device, created by Eindhoven company Microsure, enhances the surgeon’s precision, making this type of procedure easier to perform.

Heart valves formed from patient’s own tissue

Heart valves formed from patient’s own tissue
A new method allows surgeons to reconstruct entire heart valves from the patient’s own tissue. This surgical procedure is currently only used at a handful of centres in the world. Recently, PD Dr. Markus Krane, Deputy Director of the Cardiovascular Surgery Department of the German Heart Centre Munich, has also used the new method on patients in Munich. The method is particularly advantageous for children and young patients.

AtriClip PRO•V device launched in the U.S.
AtriCure has announced that it has launched the AtriClip PRO•V Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Exclusion System in the United States. The new device offers an open-ended design combined with a tip-first closure mechanism to enable easier navigation and placement when operating in minimally-invasive surgery (MIS) environments. The AtriClip PRO•V represents a significant addition to the company’s already deep offerings for epicardial left atrial appendage management.
