Robotic interventions have become a pivotal component in minimally invasive neurosurgical procedures. While the use of robotic devices in medical operations is advancing, there is still a pressing need to train and equip medical professionals with emerging biomedical developments. Though Virtual reality (VR) has been proven to be a great tool...

Gastroschisis, a congenital abdominal wall defect located to the right of the intact umbilical cord (UC), results in the herniation of fetal abdominal organs into the amniotic cavity without a protective membrane covering these structures. Complex gastroschisis (CG), comprising approximately 10% of cases, is associated with significantly higher...

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has several advantages over conventional surgery, including reduced damage to the body, less pain, lower infection risk, and faster recovery. However, MIS reduces the amount of space in which clinicians can operate within the body. This often forces them to work around delicate anatomical structures. A new type...

In laparoscopic surgery, quality of haptic feedback is reduced compared to conventional surgery, leading to unintentional tissue damage during grasping. From the perspective of haptics, poor mechanical design of laparoscopic instrument joints induces friction and a nonlinear actuation-tip force relation. In this study, a novel laparoscopic...

Intra-operative fluorescent imaging of endometriosis could help to optimize surgical treatment. Potential biomarkers to use as target for endometriosis-binding fluorescent probes were identified using a new five-phase transcriptomics-based approach to broaden the search for biomarkers. Using publicly available datasets, a differentially...

Conventional medical instruments are not capable of passing through tortuous anatomy as required for natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery due to their rigid shaft designs. Nevertheless, developments in minimally invasive surgery are pushing medical devices to become more dexterous. Amongst devices with controllable flexibility, so...

The upcoming Shaft Actuated Tip Articulated Low Resource Settings (SATA-LRS) platform is in need of a novel design of a strong, foldable beak able to close in parallel. Steerable instruments for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) are used more often but still have some limitations. The end-effectors used are v-shaped, causing...

With the ongoing miniaturization of surgical instruments, the ability to apply large forces on tissues for resection becomes challenging and the risk of buckling becomes more real. In an effort to allow for high force application in slender instruments, in this study, we have investigated using a hydraulic pressure wave (COMSOL model) and...

With the increase in Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery procedures, there is an increasing demand for surgical instruments with additional degrees of freedom, able to travel along tortuous pathways and guarantee dexterity and high accuracy without compromising the surrounding environment. The implementation of follow-the-leader...

Minimally invasive surgery has some major benefits over traditional open surgery for the patient, but makes surgery more complex for the surgeon. Articulating instruments can regain some of the manoeuvrability that is lost by using a small incision. However, in endoscopic neurosurgery such articulating devices do currently not exist, due to...

Purpose<br/>As a result of the worldwide aging population, Vertebral Compression Fractures (VCF) are commonly detected in osteoporotic patients; these can originate from traumatic events or occur spontaneously. The existing VCF devices and their corresponding surgical instruments have their limitations in terms of short- and long-term...

Philips is the global leader in Image-Guided Therapy (IGT). This medical specialization provides integrated solutions that allow for minimally invasive medical procedures. A specialized medical team consisting of multiple stakeholders works closely with Philips's newest technological devices and systems during these interventions. These complex...

Gripping slippery, compliant, and irregular tissues during MIS is often challenging using a conventional gripper. A force grip has to compensate for the low friction coefficient between the gripper’s jaws and tissue surface. This study focuses on the development of a suction gripper as an alternative for the well-known tissue gripper. Suction...

In the history of medicine and surgery, a slow transition is made from open surgery to minimally invasive surgery. Nowadays, natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is investigated and tested. A NOTES procedure includes flexible instruments, which are inserted through natural orifices such as the mouth, nose, anus or vagina. The...

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has made tremendous impact on hospitals worldwide. Introduced as a patient friendly alternative to open surgery by significantly reducing incisions size, benefits such as faster patient recovery time, and less pain for patients, are achieved. However, in MIS, rigid instrument shafts can impair surgeons’ dexterity...

Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is a procedure that is used to determine the stage of disease of melanoma patients and determine further treatment. However, the morbidities accompanied with this procedure are not negligible (e.g., wound infection, lymphoedema and seroma). With the goal reduce the incidence of morbidities, this thesis...

Tissue transport is a challenge during Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) with the current suction-based instruments as the increasing length and miniaturisation of the outer diameter requires a higher pressure. Inspired by the wasp ovipositor, a slender and bendable organ through which eggs can be transported, a flexible transport mechanism for...

Introduction: The implementation of advanced minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques has broadened. An extensive body of literature shows that high hospital and surgeon volumes lead to better patient outcomes. However, no information is available regarding volume trends in the post-implementation phase of MIS. This study investigated...
