Robotic surgery has become the standard of care for many procedures outside of otolaryngology and now is gaining momentum within our specialty. The da Vinci (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, CA) robot has several advantages to human hands, including removal of tremor and better access to lesions because of increased degree of movement of the articulated instruments. The glottis has rarely been addressed using robotic surgery because access was previously thought to be difficult because of the limitations of currently used retractors, which include poor base of tongue and oral commissure retraction resulting in lack of exposure of the glottis in many patients and lack of space for the robotic instruments to occupy...

The worldwide fascination of da Vinci's Mona Lisa has been dedicated to the emotional ambiguity of her face expression. In the present study we manipulated Mona Lisa's mouth curvature as one potential source of ambiguity and studied how a range of happier and sadder face variants influences perception. In two experimental conditions we presented different stimulus ranges with different step sizes between stimuli along the happy-sad axis of emotional face expressions. Stimuli were presented in random order and participants indicated the perceived emotional face expression (first task) and the confidence of their response (second task)...

Minimally invasive surgery can be performed with robotic assistance, as evolution of laparoscopic surgery. Robots for assisted surgery are far from being user friendly and require extensive training. To this end, ad-hoc devices and experimental set-ups are needed. The da Vinci system is one of the most diffused surgical robotics technology. The aim of the study was two-fold: i) to propose a neurophysiological measure by which objectively assess the learning progress of the users by means of a simulator of the da Vinci system, and ii) to demonstrate the advantages of cognitive assessment with respect to the standard methodologies for the evaluation of training efficiency...

Emmanuel Moss, Michael E Halkos
Significant technological advances have led to an impressive evolution in mitral valve surgery over the last two decades, allowing surgeons to safely perform less invasive operations through the right chest. Most new technology comes with an increased upfront cost that must be measured against postoperative savings and other advantages such as decreased perioperative complications, faster recovery, and earlier return to preoperative level of functioning. The Da Vinci robot is an example of such a technology, combining the significant benefits of minimally invasive surgery with a "gold standard" valve repair...

Tong Qiu, Yandong Zhao, Yunpeng Xuan, Wenjie Jiao
Double-sleeve lobectomy, which includes bronchoplasty and pulmonary arterial angioplasty, is required for certain cases of central-type lung cancer. It is usually done by open surgery or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). In recently, da Vinci system and robotic surgery have been applied in such complicated cases. Here we describe the details associated with robotic-assisted double-sleeve lobectomy.

The history of the expression of three-dimensional structure in art can be traced from the use of occlusion in Palaeolithic cave paintings, through the use of shadow in classical art, to the development of perspective during the Renaissance. However, the history of the use of stereoscopic techniques is controversial. Although the first undisputed stereoscopic images were presented by Wheatstone in 1838, it has been claimed that two sketches by Jacopo Chimenti da Empoli (c. 1600) can be to be fused to yield an impression of stereoscopic depth, while others suggest that Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa is the world's first stereogram...
