Scientists have developed an injectable gel that can attach to various kinds of soft internal tissues and repair tears resulting from an accident or trauma.
Emerging technologies are transforming the way surgical procedures are done. We will give an overview on new applications of surgical robotics, immersive realities such as augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing, and digitalization in the OR.
Professor Dr Henning Windhagen is a great fan of semi-automatic systems in the OR that help with implants but leave the surgeon in the driver’s seat.
Researchers have demonstrated MRI compatibility in their soft electrode arrays – a crucial step in translation to the clinic.
Researchers have fabricated 3D scaffold implants containing antibiotics at high temperatures. These scaffolds support bone regeneration and manage the bone infections.
Researchers are developing 3D technologies for surgeons. The aids for surgery planning are particularly advanced.
Researchers have shown that lab-created heart valves implanted in young lambs for a year were capable of growth within the recipient.
Dr Jan Stallkamp, Professor for Automation in Healthcare and Biotechnology, has a vision: robots that can treat patients more efficiently and more precisely than any human physician.
Researchers have developed a minuscule robot that could revolutionize surgical procedures for treating prostate cancer.
The patch, which can be folded around surgical tools, may someday be used in robotic surgery to repair tissues and organs.
Researchers have developed a ceramic artificial bone coating with triple the adhesion strength compared to conventional coating materials.
Two surgeon tested a device that, when attached to everyday eyeglasses, can display fluoroscopic images used for surgical guidance directly to the surgeon.
Researchers at the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London, have introduced a novel tool for generating accurate endoscopic datasets.
