Scientists have found that a simple device can reduce swelling after kidney transplantation. Clinical trial shows shortened hospital stay for patients and reduced surgical site infections by almost 60 percent.
Emerging technologies are transforming the way surgical procedures are done. We provide an overview on new applications of surgical robotics, immersive realities such as augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing, and digitalization in the OR.
Researchers have repaired traumatic injuries to the skin and bones in a rat model using bioprinting during surgery.
Medtronic partners with Surgical Theater to provide the first augmented reality platform for use in real-rime during complex cranial procedures.
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 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.
Researchers have found a way to send tiny, soft robots into humans, potentially opening the door for less invasive surgeries and ways to deliver treatments for several conditions.
