Microsurgery

Microsurgery is a general term for surgery requiring an operating microscope. The most obvious developments have been procedures developed to allow anastomosis of successively smaller blood vessels and nerves (typically 1 mm in diameter) which have allowed transfer of tissue from one part of the body to another and re-attachment of severed parts.

Design of a micromanipulator based on miniature LINAPOD

2016 6th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (BioRob), 2016

Benchtop test is shown in Fig.2. This miniature LINAPOD consists of 6 SQUIGGLE motors. It functions as shaft with drive assemblies which contains miniature bearings. This manipulator is implemented by rapid prototyping. Six equivalent actuations in motors can generate pure longitudinal motion. As a result, this shows 6-DOF motions of the tool which can be helpful for microsurgery.


Performance Envelope and Physiological Tremor in Microsurgery

Proceedings of the IEEE 32nd Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, 2006

Using an instrumented surgical tool, high-precision recordings of hand tremor were taken during vitreoretinal microsurgery in a rabbit model in vivo. The data obtained using a compact, custom six-degree-of-freedom inertial sensing module were filtered and analyzed to characterize the physiological hand tremor of the surgeon. Tremor during the most delicate part of the procedure was measured at a vector magnitude ...


Positioning Accuracy of Neurosurgeons

2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2007

Accuracy in manual manipulation in a simulated craniotomy environment has been studied. Eighty-eight neurosurgeons with varying amounts of surgical experience were tested in two tasks: attempting to hold an instrument still, and trying to trace a line. Results for RMS and maximum linear and angular motion were measured in the static task. RMS and maximum error were measured in the ...


Modeling 3D tremor signals with a quaternion weighted Fourier Linear Combiner

2015 7th International IEEE/EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering (NER), 2015

Physiological tremor is an involuntary and rhythmic movement of the body specially the hands. The vibrations in hand-held surgical instruments caused by physiological tremor can cause unacceptable imprecision in microsurgery. To rectify this problem, many adaptive filtering-based methods have been developed to model the tremor to remove it from the tip of microsurgery devices. The existing tremor modeling algorithms such ...

  • Performance Envelope and Physiological Tremor in Microsurgery

    Using an instrumented surgical tool, high-precision recordings of hand tremor were taken during vitreoretinal microsurgery in a rabbit model in vivo. The data obtained using a compact, custom six-degree-of-freedom inertial sensing module were filtered and analyzed to characterize the physiological hand tremor of the surgeon. Tremor during the most delicate part of the procedure was measured at a vector magnitude of 30 μm rms. Non-tremulous, lower- frequency components of instrument movement were also characterized. The data collected provide an important baseline for design specification and performance evaluation of microsurgical devices, using a more comprehensive data set than has been evaluated previously.

  • Positioning Accuracy of Neurosurgeons

    Accuracy in manual manipulation in a simulated craniotomy environment has been studied. Eighty-eight neurosurgeons with varying amounts of surgical experience were tested in two tasks: attempting to hold an instrument still, and trying to trace a line. Results for RMS and maximum linear and angular motion were measured in the static task. RMS and maximum error were measured in the dynamic task. Spectral analysis was also performed for both tasks. The median RMS amplitude of the position vector in three dimensions was 526 mum in the stationary task, and the median RMS amplitude of the error vector was 289 mum in the tracing task.

  • Modeling 3D tremor signals with a quaternion weighted Fourier Linear Combiner

    Physiological tremor is an involuntary and rhythmic movement of the body specially the hands. The vibrations in hand-held surgical instruments caused by physiological tremor can cause unacceptable imprecision in microsurgery. To rectify this problem, many adaptive filtering-based methods have been developed to model the tremor to remove it from the tip of microsurgery devices. The existing tremor modeling algorithms such as the weighted Fourier Linear Combiner (wFLC) algorithm and its extensions operate on the x, y, and z dimensions of the tremor signals independently. These algorithms are blind to the dynamic couplings between the three dimensions. We hypothesized that a system that takes these coupling information into account can model the tremor with more accuracy compared to the existing methods. Tremor data was recorded from five novice subjects and modeled with a novel quaternion weighted Fourier Linear Combiner (QwFLC). We compared the modeling performance of the proposed QwFLC with that of the conventional wFLC algorithm. Results showed that QwFLC improves the modeling performance by about 20% at the cost of higher computational complexity.

  • Reversible and irreversible unfolding of eukaryote chromosomes by force

    We have carried out studies of metaphase chromosomes in primary explant cultures of newt lung epithelia, using in situ microsurgery and force measurement. The chromosomes are elastic over a five-fold range of extension, with a force constant of about one nanonewton (nN). For larger extensions, chromosomes are permanently elongated; if stretched beyond 30 times, their cross-sectional diameter is increased after relaxation. Fluorescence studies indicate that histone proteins are not being removed. We conclude that we are first unfolding and then breaking chromosome-folding proteins by extension.

  • Development of the dual SMART micro-surgical system using common-path swept source optical coherence tomography

    Manual micro-surgical tasks are fundamentally divided into grasping, cutting and injecting maneuvers performed on biological tissues. Efficient dissection of fibrous tissue from the surface of the retina often requires grasping and cutting maneuvers carried out simultaneously. True bimanual surgery requires that the surgeon contend with the innate hand tremor of two hands at once as well as unpredicted patient's movement. In this study, we develop and test a dual SMART micro-surgical system to suppress bimanual hand tremor during micro-surgical dissection.

  • Man-machine dynamic characteristics related to position and force control tasks in micro-teleoperation systems

    Microsurgery and microassembly are some high precision tasks that require the assistance of a micromanipulator. However, in order to manipulate micro objects it is inevitable to consider the scaling effect problem between the worlds with different physical characteristics. Some scaling methods have been proposed, but how the scaling gains affect the human operator performance is still a remaining problem. In this paper, when different transfer function parameters are selected, the effects on the performance and the dynamic characteristics in both visual and force control tasks of the human operator are analyzed.

  • Development of Multifunctional Wireless Microrobot for Biomimedical Application

    A microrobot that can be moved along blood vessels has a great potential application for microsurgery. This paper discusses the development of a wireless mierorobot that can be manipulated inside a tube using an external magnetic field. The model microrobot utilizes an electromagnetic actuator as the servo actuator to realize movement in biomedical applications. The structure, motion mechanism, and characteristic evaluation of a driving fin used for propulsion have been discussed. The fishlike fin movement can be controlled via frequency adjustments to the alternate magnetic field. Vertical movement of the microrobot can be stopped at a specified location. Experimental results indicate that the microrobot can be controlled upward, downward, and also be suspended in water using frequency adjustments. The microrobot has a rapid response, and can correspond to the dirt adhering to the inner wall. This device will play an important role in both industrial and medical applications such as microsurgery.
