Background: Bilateral tubal ligation (BTL) is the most common method of contraception worldwide because it is safe and effective. However, its accessibility remains unequal among women in rural India, in part due to a lack of laparoscopic equipment. Rural hospitals therefore resort to gas insufflation-less laparoscopic surgery (GILLS) because it...

Surgeons performing robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery experience physical stress and overuse of shoulder muscles due to sub-optimal arm support during surgery. The objective is to present a novel design and prototype of a dynamic arm support for robotic laparoscopic surgery to evaluate its ergonomics and performance on the AdLap-VR...

Introduction: Most robotic instruments and their drives still risk residual contamination due to cleaning complexities, rendering them limited reusable, and tend to have larger instruments than the 5mm laparoscopic standard. The novel steerable laparoscopic SATA-LRS uses modularity for cleanability and exchangeability. The SATA-Drive: a...

Recently, the world population has crossed 8 million people and it is estimated that out of every three persons two cannot afford surgery (Meara et al., 2015a). Surgery is the primary treatment for one-third of the diseases (Quene et al., 2022), but since 6 percent of all procedures are performed in the poorest countries, where more than one...

Liver cancer ranks seventh in global cancer prevalence and stands as the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Surgical resection is considered the gold standard for treatment of liver malignancies and has witnessed a shift toward minimally invasive techniques in recent decades. Surgeons rely on laparoscopic observations, preoperative...

Laparoscopic surgery uses small incisions and a camera for abdominal or pelvic operations, with benefits such as shorter recovery time and hospital stay. However, reduced surgeon hand-eye coordination and feedback can lead to excessive applied force and potential tissue damage. Haptic and visual feedback systems have been...

Rural India faces many challenges in providing adequate health care for all. Health awareness among the Indian population is low due to poor functional literacy and low emphasis on education within the health sector.<br/><br/>Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), such as laparoscopy, offers many advantages, including smaller incisions, less tissue...

Introduction: Robot-assisted surgery is often performed by experienced laparoscopic surgeons. However, this technique requires a different set of technical skills and surgeons are expected to alternate between these approaches. The aim of this study is to investigate the crossover effects when switching between laparoscopic and robot-assisted...

Background: <br/>Veress needles (VN) are commonly used in establishing pneumoperitoneum in laparoscopic surgery. Previously, a VN with a new safety mechanism ‘VeressPLUS’ needle (VN+) was developed to reduce the amount of overshoot.<br/><br/>Methods: <br/>Eighteen participants (novices, intermediates, and experts) performed in total of 248...

Background: During minimal access surgery, surgical smoke is produced which can potentially be inhaled by the surgical team, leading to several health risks. This smoke can escape from the abdominal cavity into the operating room due to trocar leakage. The trocars and insufflator that are used during surgery influence gas leakage. Therefore,...

Hand suturing is one of the most challenging tasks in laparoscopic surgery and requires high cognitive effort from the performing surgeon. Nevertheless, it is also one of the basic skills of minimally invasive surgery and it is a critical skill due to its high requirements and broad application. <br/><br/>During gastric bypass surgery, there are...

The complexity of handheld steerable laparoscopic instruments (SLI) may impair the learning curve compared to conventional instruments when first utilized. This study aimed to provide the current state of interest in the use of SLI, the current use of these in daily practice and the type of training which is conducted before using SLI in the...

Background: Abdominal compliance describes the ease of expansion of the abdominal cavity. Several studies highlighted the importance of monitoring abdominal compliance (C<sub>ab</sub>) during the creation of laparoscopic workspace to individualize the insufflation pressure. The lack of validated clinical monitoring tools for abdominal...

Background: Hospitals in low resource settings (LRS) can benefit from modern laparoscopic methodologies. However, cleaning, maintenance and costs requirements play a stronger role while training and technology are less available. Steerable laparoscopic instruments have additional requirements in these settings and need extra identified...

Laparoscopy is a type of minimally invasive surgery in which instruments with long, slender shafts between handle and end effector are inserted through small incisions in the abdominal wall. A laparoscopic aspirator-irrigator (LAI) has a hollow shaft used to evacuate undesirable substances using a vacuum pressure, rinse tissue using a stream of...

Laparoscopy involves the use of various instruments for performing different functions. As a consequence, time is spent in exchanging the various instruments, adding to the overall operation time. In order to reduce this overall operation time and solve this problem, the number of instrument exchanges need to be reduced. Reducing the number of...

Background. During the COVID-19 pandemic the question arises if laparoscopy, as an aerosol forming procedure, poses a potential risk for viral transmission of SARS-CoV-2 to healthcare workers. Methods. A literature search was conducted using PubMed, Embase and MEDLINE. Articles reporting information regarding COVID-19 or other relevant...

Background: Complications that occur in laparoscopic surgery are often associated with the initial entry into the peritoneal cavity. The literature reported incidences of Veress needle (VN) injuries of e.g. 0.31% and 0.23%. In a 2010 national survey of laparoscopic entry techniques in the Canadian General Surgical practice, 57.3% of...

Background: Laparoscopy has reduced tactile and visual feedback compared to open surgery. There is increasing evidence that visual and haptic information converge to form a more robust mental representation of an object. We investigated whether tactile exploration of an object prior to executing a laparoscopic action on it improves...
