i-LID – Instrument-driven Laparoscopic Image Display

Francois I Luks, MD, Austin Y Ha, Derek L Merck, PhD, Eleanor A Fallon, MD, Sean S Ciullo, MD. Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Objective: Despite the many advantages of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), traditional image display has a substantial limitation: the dependence of the entire surgical team on a single telescope viewpoint. This […]

Quantification of Body Shape, Surface Area and Volume with White Light Scanning in Human Subjects

John Pender, MD, Konstantinos Spaniolas, MD, William Chapman, MD, Edgar Moore, MD, Lynis Dohm, MD, Stephen Wohlgemuth, MD, Walter Pories, MD. East Carolina University and Easter Virgina Medical School. Objective: At present there are no clinically feasible methods for accurately quantifying morbid obesity. BMI, while convenient, fails to distinguish fat from fitness. More complex and […]

Safety and efficacy of post-anastomotic intraoperative endoscopy to avoid early anastomotic complications during gastrectomy for gastric cancer

Sang-Ho Jeong, Young-Joon Lee, Ju-Yeon Kim, Taejin Park, Sang-Kyung Choi, Soon-Chan Hong, Eun-Jung Jung, Young-tae Ju, Chi-Young Jeong, Woo-Song Ha, Ji-Ho Park. Gyeongsang National University. Background: Anastomotic complications such as leakage, bleeding, and stricture remain among the most serious complications of surgery for gastric cancer. No perfect method exists for accurate and reliable avoidance of […]

Use of Smartglasses to Optimize Delivery of Pre-Operative Surgical Safety Checklists

Michael Russo, MD, Ulysses Rosas, BA, Homero Rivas, MD, MBA. Stanford University School of Medicine. Objective of Technology: Institution of a pre-operative surgical safety checklist for use in timeouts has been widely adopted nationwide in multiple institutions. The benefits of the adoption of preoperative surgical safety checklists have been demonstrated to adhere to life-saving steps […]

First human experience using the dynamic laparoscopic NovaTract(tm) retractor

Koji Park, MD, Andrew J Duffy, MD, FACS, Kurt E Roberts, MD, FACS. Yale University School of Medicine. Objective: The quest to minimize surgical trauma has led to the development of Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) and Laparoendoscopic Single-Site (LESS) surgery.  The concept of reducing the number of transabdominal access ports has been criticized for […]

Robotic Manipulator with Multiple Instruments for NOTES

Abolfazl Pourghodrat, Carl A Nelson, PhD, Dmitry Oleynikov, MD. University of Nebraska Lincoln. Decreasing the degree of invasiveness of surgery is believed to improve patient outcomes.  Transitioning from open surgery to Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) is a future trend in surgery due to the potential benefits it offers. NOTES […]

Applications of Google Glass in Surgery

Andrew Wright, MD, Amy Morris, MD, Heather Evans, MD, Jonathan Ilgen, MD, Andrew Mesher, MD, Michael Levitt, MD. University of Washington. Google Glass is a wearable computer with integrated camera and heads-up display. It is uniquely suited to surgery because it 1) is hands-free and voice-controlled; 2) provides high quality video recording and transmission from […]

Use of Smartglasses for Augmented Reality Based Surgical Training

Michael Russo, MD, Ulysses Rosas, BA, Homero Rivas, MD, MBA. Stanford University School of Medicine. Objective of Technology: Surgical simulation has emerged as a useful adjunct to surgical training. Learners have used virtual reality platforms and models to simulate the operating room, both of which can lack realism and take place in the simulation lab. […]

Retractor System Using Suckers in the Artificial Ascites.

Kotaro Kusu, BSc, Yoshihisa Matsunaga, Takuro Ishii, MSc, Kazuya Kawamura, PhD, Tatsuo Igarashi, MD, PhD. Chiba University. Handling of parenchymal organs is a critical issue in exposing the operative field or exerting counter traction. Restraint of size and number of access point in laparoscopic or robot-assisted surgeries prompted us to make novel “biomimetic” retracting system […]

Development and Utilization of a Canine Model to Assess Staple Line Reinforcement Materials in the Abdomen

Michael Soltz, PhD, Ludovic Boure, DVM, Clayton Ramey, DVM, Elizabeth Contini, BS, Dwight Bronson, MS, Tim Ebner, BS, Gerald Hodgkinson, PhD. Covidien. AIM The goals of this project were to develop a surgical model to assess buttressed and non-buttressed staple lines in the abdomen of a canine and utilize the model to test two buttress […]
