A Novel Sensorized Instrument-based Minimally Invasive Surgery (simis) Tool: Initial Construct Validation of Position Sensing

Objective: A novel sensorized laparoscopic instrument capable of sensing tip position in 6 degrees of freedom (DOF) and forces in 5 DOF was evaluated. The purpose of this research was to demonstrate that the position sensing component is construct valid as evidenced by different position profiles between novice and expert laparoscopic surgeons. Methods: Using an… Continue Reading »

Single Site Laparoscopic (ssl) Cholecystectomy in Human Cadavers Using Novel Percutaneous Retraction and a Magnetic Anchoring and Guidance System (mags): Re-establishing the Critical View

Introduction: SSL, though promising, introduces ergonomic challenges due to loss of instrument triangulation as obtained in conventional laparoscopy. This limitation makes establishing the critical view during dissection of the Triangle of Calot (TOC) difficult and has resulted in a variety of strategies to overcome the problem. This study investigates use of a novel percutaneous grasper… Continue Reading »

Repeated Laparoscopic Hepatectomy for the Recurrent Hepatocellular Carcinoma

We have pursued laparoscopic hepatectomy as a means of surgical therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) since 1993. It has been reported that laparoscopic hepatectomy in the patient with HCC appears to be a viable surgical alternative providing less invasion in selected cases. This procedure is expected to develop further in the future as a new… Continue Reading »
