Surgery

View this topic in
Surgery is an ancient medical specialty that uses operative manual and instrumental techniques on a patient to investigate and/or treat a pathological condition such as disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance. An act of performing surgery may be called a surgical procedure, operation, or simply surgery. (Wikipedia.org)

  • Current status of flexible waveguides for IR laser radiation transmission

    Minimal invasive surgery (MIS) is the preferred method for performing medical operations today due to its lower cost, fast healing, and minimal post- operative pain and discomfort to the treated patients. It is rapidly expanding with the development and miniaturization of two-dimensional (2-D) and three- dimensional (3-D) endoscopic imaging systems. Laser surgery has also proved itself to be a preferred tool of operation over standard tools in a lot of the cases. Development of a reliable flexible fiber or waveguide will enable surgeons to bring the laser beam transcendoscopically within body cavities. It will combine the endoscopy technique with the advantageous laser interaction with tissue to create a powerful surgical tool which will be the ultimate choice of operating procedure. A number of research groups have suggested flexible waveguides for the mid-IR region between 2.5 and 11 /spl mu/m, which contains very important and useful laser wavelengths and is not covered by silica fibers. The chief goals for the development of such delivery devices are summarized. The different solutions suggested are broadly described and thoroughly analyzed for their performance and potential.

  • Infrared laser spectroscopy on surgical smoke

    Surgical smoke (Barrett and Garber, 2003) consists of gases, vapors and aerosols produced during surgery with lasers, ultrasonic scalpels and electroknives. In open surgery this smoke is produced in air, whereas in laparoscopic (minimally invasive surgery) it is usually produced in a carbon dioxide atmosphere. Three aspects of surgical smoke are important with respect to patient and medical staff safety: the chemical composition (gases/vapors), the biological composition (cells and cell fragments), and the particulate composition (sooth/aerosols). Most previous studies have been performed in vitro with gaschromatographic analyses of the generated smoke yielding mostly qualitative results on the chemical composition. The goal of this study is a systematic investigation of smoke produced in laparoscopic surgery in a C02 atmosphere. Smoke samples collected during surgery under different conditions (type of tissue and of surgical instrument (electroknife, ultrasonic scalpel)) will be analyzed.

  • Development of a miniature robot for hearing aid implantation

    In this paper, we present a novel robotic assistant dedicated to otologic surgery for an implantable hearing aid system, which is a procedure involving drilling into the lateral skull of the patient. This compact and flexible miniature robot is designed so as to fulfill the requirements of precise bone drillings for hearing aid implantation. It is built from an original five degree-of-freedom (DOF) parallel structure with a motorized end-effector, particularly well suited to otological surgical procedure. The specification, the design and the analysis of the workspace are detailed. A preliminary accuracy evaluation is presented. A rotational accuracy of 0.6 ± 0.6° and a translational accuracy of 1.4 ± 0.5 mm were found.

  • The use of simulation to evaluate hospital operations between the emergency department and a medical telemetry unit

    We present a simulation model of the operations in the emergency department (ED) and medical telemetry (Med Tele) units at Rush North Shore Medical Center. The model allows management to see the operations of both units as well as how the processes of each unit impact the other. Due to the large amount of variability that can take place within these units, Rush North Shore Medical Center along with Cap Gemini Ernst & Young sought the use of simulation to help evaluate their operations and provide insight into possible areas for improvement. Rockwell automation created a model which depicts the current operations and evaluates possible alternatives to reduce the length of stay in the ED and improve operations. Using simulation, the hospital was able to select two to three key changes, rather than creating more stress with ten or more changes, to get the same result.

  • Lasers in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery

    Summary form only received: Laser technology can be used to perform various procedures in aesthetic and reconstructive (A&R) surgery.

  • MRTI-Based Optimization and Real-Time Laser Surgical Control for Cancer Treatment Using Fast Inverse Analysis Techniques

    For cancerous tumors in vital internal organs, minimally invasive laser surgery may be a desirable choice for cancer treatment due to its precise control and compatibility with most of the imaging modalities such as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). However, the complexity of tumor composition and tissue response to a thermal dose demands real time optimization and control. In the previous work, we have developed a quite general computational framework that is capable of processing MRI anatomical data, providing pretreatment surgical protocol, and controlling tissue damage based on in vivo MRTI (magnetic resonance thermal imaging) data. In this paper, we describe computational techniques that are involved in real time optimization and control for laser surgical protocols of cancer treatment.

  • Bone marrow stromal cells and their use in regenerating bone tissue

    We have used autologous BMSC/bioceramic composites to treat full-thickness gaps of long bones, first in a large animal model (tibia diaphysis in adult sheep) and than in few selected patients. A complete integration of ceramic with bone was observed by X-ray, histology, microradiography and SEM studies. In addition a good functional recovery was obtained. The healing process involved four main steps: 1) bone formation on the outer surface of the implant; 2) bone formation in the inner cylinder canal; 3) formation of fissures and cracks in the implant body (integration and disintegration mechanisms); 4) bone formation in the bioceramics pores. The results obtained are very promising and could represent a real and significant improvement in the repair of critical size long bone defects.

  • Pose estimation of femur fracture segments for image guided orthopedic surgery

    The widespread adoption of minimally invasive surgical techniques has driven the need for three dimensional (3D) intra-operative image guidance. Hence the pose estimation (position and orientation) performed through the registration of pre-operatively prepared 3D anatomical data to intra-operative two dimensional (2D) fluoroscopy images is one of the main research areas of image guided orthopedic surgery. This paper proposes a non-invasive anatomy-based method for intraoperative pose estimation. The registration is performed solely utilizing bony anatomical features extracted from bi-planar fluoroscopic images (frontal and lateral) without invasive external fiducial markers. The novelty of the proposed methodology is involved in the anatomical features utilized, which are unproblematic and robust to extract and facilitate near real-time pose estimation.
