BACKGROUND: The introduction of transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) in 2009 allowed colorectal surgeons to approach transanal access with a different perspective. This has lead to the development of TAMIS for total mesorectal excision (TME). We have previously described robotic transanal TME and here report our initial experience with the first three human cases performed at a single institution. METHODS: Three patients with distal rectal cancer were selective to undergo robotic transanal TME...

Transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) was introduced as an alternative to transanal endoscopic microsurgery in 2010. Over the past 4 years, considerable international experience has been gained with this approach. Most published reports focus on TAMIS for local excision of rectal neoplasia, but there are other important applications such as transanal mesorectal excision for rectal cancer. This comprehensive review details the progress with TAMIS since its inception. Robotic transanal surgery is a natural evolution of TAMIS still in its early infancy, which is also reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Robotic transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) may be an option for rectum-preserving excision of neoplasms. Recent cadaveric studies showed improved vision, control and manoeuvrability compared with use of laparoscopic instruments. This study reports the clinical application. METHODS: Consecutive patients eligible for transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) or TAMIS in three participating centres were operated on using a robotic platform and transanal glove port...

A new era has emerged in rectal cancer surgery--transanal total mesorectal excision (TME). Various platforms have been used to facilitate this novel approach, including transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) and transanal endoscopic microsurgery. We have previously reported the use of TAMIS-TME. This is a report of the first human case of robotic-assisted transanal surgery for TME.

Coronary artery bypass grafting remains the treatment choice for coronary artery disease; but sternotomy, the most commonly used approach, compromises its benefits with postoperative morbidity, higher complication rates, and prolonged length of hospital stay. Despite this, minimally invasive and robotic-assisted technology has not been adopted or widely embraced because supporting literature on robotic-assisted coronary artery bypass grafting is extremely limited. Since 2005, the cardiothoracic surgical team at our institution has been developing and maturing an effective method using robotic harvesting of the left internal mammary artery (LIMA) and beating heart surgery through a minithoracotomy for coronary revascularization...

The technique of TransAnal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) was pioneered in 2009 as a hybrid approach to endoluminal resections of appropriately selected rectal lesions. There are, however, limitations to performing this type of resection. Robotic TAMIS is a novel, experimental technique and in this study was performed in a cadaveric model at a surgical education center. Various tasks were carried out using robotic TAMIS, including full-thickness sharp and cautery excision of rectal wall, as well as intra-luminal suturing of the surgical defect...

Mobile robots (i.e., robots capable of translational movements) can be designed to become interesting tools for child development studies and pediatric rehabilitation. In this article, the authors present two of their projects that involve mobile robots interacting with children: One is a spherical robot deployed in a variety of contexts, and the other is mobile robots used as pedagogical tools for children with pervasive developmental disorders. Locomotion capability appears to be key in creating meaningful and sustained interactions with children: Intentional and purposeful motion is an implicit appealing factor in obtaining children's attention and engaging them in interaction and learning...

Rapid quantitative methods for characterizing small molecules, peptides, proteins, or RNAs in a broad array of cellular assays would allow one to discover new biological activities associated with these molecules and also provide a more comprehensive profile of drug candidates early in the drug development process. Here we describe a robotic system, termed the automated compound profiler, capable of both propagating a large number of cell lines in parallel and assaying large collections of molecules simultaneously against a matrix of cellular assays in a highly reproducible manner...
