REVIEW
Ilknur Umay, Barış Fidan, Billur Barshan
Implantable sensor systems are effective tools for biomedical diagnosis, visualization and treatment of various health conditions, attracting the interest of researchers, as well as healthcare practitioners. These systems efficiently and conveniently provide essential data of the body part being diagnosed, such as gastrointestinal (temperature, pH, pressure) parameter values, blood glucose and pressure levels and electrocardiogram data. Such data are first transmitted from the implantable sensor units to an external receiver node or network and then to a central monitoring and control (computer) unit for analysis, diagnosis and/or treatment...

Retinal microsurgery is one of the most technically difficult surgeries since it is performed at the threshold of human capability. If certain retinal conditions are left untreated, they can lead to severe damage, including irreversible blindness. Thus, techniques for reliable retinal microsurgery operations are critical. Recent research shows promise for improving surgical safety by implementing various types of sensory input and output. Sensory information is used to inform the surgeon about the environment inside the eye in real time...

In this paper, a novel, motorized, multi-degrees-of-freedom (DoF), microsurgical forceps tool is presented, which is based on a master-slave teleoperation architecture. The slave device is a 7-DoF manipulator with: (i) 6-DoF positioning and orientation, (ii) 1 open/close gripper DoF; and (iii) an integrated force/torque sensor for tissue grip-force measurement. The master device is a 7-DoF haptic interface which teleoperates the slave device, and provides haptic feedback in its gripper interface. The combination of the device and the surgeon interface replaces the manual, hand-held device providing easy-to-use and ergonomic tissue control, simplifying the surgical tasks...

The treatment of supraglottic carcinoma remains a controversial issue. Five accepted surgical and non-surgical oncological treatments have been currently established: standard horizontal supraglottic laryngectomy (HSL), supraglottic CO2 laser microsurgery (TLM), transoral robotic surgery, radiotherapy alone and radiotherapy in combination with chemotherapy. Some studies have shown that complications of head and neck surgeries increase significantly in patients over 65 years compared to younger patients. We designed a retrospective analysis to assess the rate of complications and functional outcomes of patients treated by TLM and HSL in cases of T1-T3 supraglottic squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) in a tertiary University Hospital...

Surgical treatment of laryngeal cancer has been established for decades. In addition to total laryngectomy, which was first performed in 1873, a large number or organ preservation surgical techniques, like open partial laryngectomy, transoral laser microsurgery, and transoral robotic surgery have been developed. Studies on laryngeal cancer surgery are mainly retrospective case series and cohort studies. The evolution of chemoradiation protocols and their analysis in prospective randomized trials have led to an increasing acceptance of non-surgical treatment procedures...

In microsurgery, the physiological hand tremor of the surgeon remains an important factor affecting procedure efficiency, risk of complications, and ultimately, the efficacy of treatment. The micro-scissors are routinely employed to perform precise sharp dissection of delicate tissues. Here, we present a dual optical coherence tomography (OCT) distance sensor guided, two-motor, horizontal smart micromanipulation aided robotic-surgery tool (SMART) micro-scissors. It is intended to improve surgeon performance by retaining all of the attributes of the horizontal scissors while implementing proof-of-concept use of two functional motors to provide tremor cancellation...

BACKGROUND: More than 400,000 cases of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) are diagnosed each year worldwide and the incidence is rising, partly as a result of human papillomavirus. Human papillomavirus-associated OPSCC affects younger patients and often presents at a higher stage; however, it is associated with a better prognosis.Until recently, first-line management of OPSCC involved chemoradiotherapy, as research had demonstrated comparable survival outcomes when compared with open surgery, with significantly decreased morbidity...

Robotics has a significant potential to enhance the overall capacity and efficiency of healthcare systems. Robots can help surgeons perform better quality operations, leading to reductions in the hospitalisation time of patients and in the impact of surgery on their postoperative quality of life. In particular, robotics can have a significant impact on microsurgery, which presents stringent requirements for superhuman precision and control of the surgical tools. Microsurgery is, in fact, expected to gain importance in a growing range of surgical specialties as novel technologies progressively enable the detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases at earlier stages...

Of all patients who have vasectomies performed in the United States, upwards of 6% will pursue a vasectomy reversal. Currently, the gold-standard reversal procedure is a microscopic vasovasostomy utilizing either a one or two-layer vasal anastomosis. Unfortunately, most urologists do not perform these procedures as they require extensive training and experience in microsurgery. The objective of our study was to evaluate the feasibility and success rate of robot-assisted vasovasostomy performed at our institution...

The objective of this systematic review is to synthesize the best available evidence regarding the oncological and survival outcomes (as measured by disease control, disease-free survival, disease-specific survival and overall survival) of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) versus transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) in the treatment of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma in adults (aged 18 years or older). Specifically the review questions are:1 Is there a difference in oncological outcomes between a traditional "Halstedian" en bloc tumor resection technique used in TORS versus a modern segmental tumor dissection technique used in TLM?2 Does one surgical approach confer better oncological outcomes with respect to a particular patient subgroup, such as patients with a positive human papilloma virus status or patient's with different tumor T-stages?...

Herein, we described a novel method as the use of AcuBlade robotic microsurgery system to manage idiopathic subglottic stenosis in a 73 years old lady. Compared to traditional CO2 lasers, AcuBlade facilitated the scar resection by the generation of different shape of beams (straight, curved, or disk). The same setting used for phonomicrosurgery (1-mm beam length, power of 10 W and pulse duration of 0.05-s) allowed to obtain fast, long, and uniform cuts. In addition, the reduction of the number of laser passes over the same area prevented injury of adjacent tissue and thus reduced the risk of recurrence...
