The fields of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) and Natural Orifices Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) strive to reduce the level of invasiveness by entering the body through smaller incisions and natural orifices. Hyper-redundant snake-like instruments can help in this pursuit of reducing invasiveness. Such instruments can pass along...

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...

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...
