This technology promises an improvement of surgery so as to minimize injury to the patient. The presence of robots to help humans can already be found in many aspects of life
Cardiac Surgery Using a Robot
LEICESTER, KOMPAS.com - For the first time cardiac surgery using a robot hand that is controlled by a remote control. Besides being more accurate, the use of this robot can also prevent the surgeon from the X-ray exposure.
Operating procedures, led by Dr Andre Ng at Glenfield Hospital, UK, this is the first in the world. The surgeon moves the robot to reach the appropriate circuits in cardiac patients. Control is done from the other room so the doctor will avoid the danger of X-rays from the operating room.
the robot hands are brought together by the bedside of patients,
allowing physicians to guide the operation of another room. The surgeon will look at the picture of the screen to monitor whether the catheter inserted in the right place. Because
the movement of the robot is controlled by a physician, can be sure the
operation is more accurate because it directly reaches the target.
procedure is a step forward in medicine because conventional procedures
can be time consuming," said Dr Ng, consultant cardiologist and senior
lecturer in cardiovascular science from the University of Leicester.
In the first operation, the patient was a 70-year-old man who received treatment for heart disorders atrial flutter. It is a condition where the heart beat porch, causing an irregular beat faster, as many as 300 times a minute. So that blood is not pumping well to the vital organs. After the action, the patient's condition was reported in good condition and had normal activity.
According to the doctors Ng, during this time the surgeon must use special clothing (apron) to avoid X-ray radiation "X-rays
allow the doctor to monitor what is happening in the patient's body,
but this means that doctors should be very close to the source of
radiation. Of course the accumulation of X-ray exposure can be dangerous, "he said.
in addition to doctors to avoid exposure to radiation, is also more
accurate movement of the catheter so that the benefit of patients. "It is also to anticipate a more complex procedure so that time can be shortened," he said.
robotic system called Remote Catheter Manipulation System was developed
over four years by Cathether Robotic Inc of New Jersey, USA. Team of doctors from Leicester, England, this is the first to do so in humans.
