Deployable, Variable Stiffness, Cable Driven Robot for Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Front Robot AI 2019 10;6:141. Epub 2020 Jan 10.

Human-Centered Automation, Robotics and Monitoring in Surgery (HARMS) Lab, Department of Surgery and Cancer, The Hamlyn Center, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom.

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) imposes a trade-off between non-invasive access and surgical capability. Treatment of early gastric cancers over 20 mm in diameter can be achieved by performing Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD) with a flexible endoscope; however, this procedure is technically challenging, suffers from extended operation times and requires extensive training. To facilitate the ESD procedure, we have created a deployable cable driven robot that increases the surgical capabilities of the flexible endoscope while attempting to minimize the impact on the access that they offer.

Design and Implementation of an 11mm Improvised Laparoscopic System for Performing a Single-Port Laparoscopic Hysterectomy through the Smallest Incision Ever Reported.

Surg Technol Int 2020 Nov;37:149-153

Marchand Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery, Mesa, Arizona, USA.

As a major institute in the field of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, we constantly endeavor to develop and perform the least-invasive surgeries possible. In laparoscopy and robot-assisted laparoscopy, we should expect that complex surgeries that are currently undertaken with the use of many ports of a given diameter will eventually be accomplished with smaller incisions and fewer ports. There will always be clinical scenarios that require a more invasive approach, either because of adhesive tissues or a complex pathology. Read More
