High-precision surgical robot aids cochlear implantation

High-precision surgical robot aids cochlear implantation
A team of surgeons and engineers of Inselspital, Bern University Hospital, and the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research, University of Bern, have developed a high-precision surgical robot for cochlear implantation. In the same way that avionics allow a pilot to fly a plane by instrument solely based on read-outs from the cockpit, the surgical robot developed by the researchers for RCI has the capabilities to perform surgery that a surgeon cannot carry out manually without a robot.

Royal London Hospital tweets surgery from @NHS account

Royal London Hospital tweets surgery from @NHS account
A surgeon at The Royal London Hospital has become the first to live tweet surgery world-wide from the @NHS Twitter account. Providing a virtual tour of a day in the life of a surgeon, the tweets followed Mr Ahmed from his morning commute, meeting his theatre team and carrying out safety checks before surgery, with even a public vote to choose which surgical cap he would wear (with Superman the clear winner).

First robotic dental surgery system is now cleared by FDA

First robotic dental surgery system is now cleared by FDA
Neocis announced that the company has received U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance to market Yomi, a robotic guidance system for dental implant procedures. Yomi is a computerised navigational system intended to provide assistance in both the planning (pre-operative) and the surgical (intra-operative) phases of dental implantation surgery. The system provides software to preoperatively plan dental implantation procedures and provides navigational guidance of the surgical instruments.

Minimally invasive instrument moves like a surgeon's hand

Minimally invasive instrument moves like a surgeon's hand
In an era of spiraling health care cost concerns, a $500 surgical instrument developed at the University of Michigan is vying to take the place of a $2 million robot for certain minimally invasive procedures. U-M startup FlexDex Surgical's first product—a simple, ergonomic and intuitive "needle driver" for stitching inside the body—has been used for the first time in a series of operations.

Simulations can improve heart surgeries

Simulations can improve heart surgeries
MRI and CT scans provide physicians with a detailed picture of their patients’ internal anatomy. Heart surgeons often use these images to plan surgeries. Unfortunately, these anatomical images don’t show how the blood is flowing through the vessels — which is critical, according to Alison Marsden, PhD, a Stanford associate professor of pediatrics and of bioengineering. In the video above, she explains that many surgeons now use a pencil and paper to sketch out their surgical plan based on the patient’s images.

Diagnosing tumours during brain surgeries

Diagnosing tumours during brain surgeries
If a tumour is suspected during brain surgery, it takes 30-40 minutes from the time of removing the sample from the patient’s brain to the time of diagnosis. The sample is taken through a rigorous process of tissue sectioning, staining, mounting, and interpretation by pathologists. Researchers from University of Michigan have now developed an imaging technique that could significantly reduce the time taken for such diagnoses.

Technique reduces diagnosis time during brain surgery

Technique reduces diagnosis time during brain surgery
An approach to the practice of surgical pathology for brain tumour patients could make for a powerful combination: more accurate, safer and more efficient operations. Neurosurgeons and pathologists at Michigan Medicine are the first to execute stimulated Raman histology, a method that improves speed and diagnostic efficiency, in an operating room. They detail the advance in a Nature Biomedical Engineering paper.

Fluorescent probe targets pancreatic cancer cells

Fluorescent probe targets pancreatic cancer cells
A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer often means the patient has less than a year to live, and some reports suggest that pancreatic cancer will become the second-leading cause of cancer-related death in the next fifteen years. Patients often require surgery to remove the cancerous tissue as chemotherapy or radiation do not significantly improve patient prognosis.

Mixed reality simulation solution makes use of HoloLens

Mixed reality simulation solution makes use of HoloLens
On the eve of the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in Orlando, Florida, CAE Healthcare announced the release of CAE VimedixAR, an ultrasound training simulator integrated with the Microsoft HoloLens. CAE Healthcare will be the first company to bring a commercial Microsoft HoloLens application to the medical simulation market.
