Energy-based surgical instruments are increasingly used in laparoscopic surgical procedures. For example, the ultrasonic scalpel enables tissue coagulation and -cutting by transferring a mechanical vibration to the tissue. Additionally, real-time sensing is implemented to improve the surgical procedures. Intraoperative ultrasonography is one of...

One of the most prominent drivers in the development of surgical procedures is the will to reduce their invasiveness, attested by minimally invasive surgery being the gold standards in many surgical procedures and natural orifices transluminal endoscopic surgery gaining acceptance. A logical next step in this pursuit is the introduction of...

Surgical removal remains the preferred treatment for tumors. In order to ensure complete removal, a margin of surrounding healthy tissue is removed together with it. Research has found a relationship between the width of this resection margin and tumor recurrence; patient outcome is improved with greater margins. In order to ensure that no tumor...

Follow-the-leader propagation allows for the insertion of flexible surgical instruments along curved paths, reducing the access required for natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery. Currently, the most promising follow-the-leader instruments use the alternating memory method containing two mechanical memory-banks for controlling the...

Surgical procedures are shifting towards Minimal Invasive Surgery (MIS). Surgeons are currently limited in their actions by the straight rigid instruments available to them. Devices capable of navigating along curved trajectories increase a surgeon's workspace, which can benefit surgical performance. This paper shortly goes over the state of the...

Background Unavailability of instruments is recognised to cause delays and stress in the operating room, which can lead to additional risks for the patients. The aim was to provide an overview of the hazards in the entire delivery process of surgical instruments and to provide insight into how Information Technology (IT) could support this...

Golde, T.A. (author)
In the last thirty years, many new surgical methods and techniques such as laparoscopic surgery and natural orifice surgery have been introduced into hospitals worldwide. As these technologies have progressed, surgical instruments have become increasingly more complex and also much more difficult to clean and sterilize. In this paper, one such...

Performing complex tasks in Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is demanding due to a disturbed hand-eye co-ordination, the application of non-ergonomic instruments with limited number of degrees of freedom (DOFs) and the two-dimensional (2D) view controlled by the surgical assistance. Robotic camera holders and tele-manipulatory systems enhance...
