Telemanipulation Systems, Surgical, Minimally Invasive
Definition : Telemanipulation systems designed for planning, training, and/or performing minimally invasive surgical procedures. These systems usually consist of robotic arms that replicate the surgeon's hand movements but filter out the tremor, an endoscopic guiding system, and a workstation that includes a computerized processor, displays showing a three-dimensional graphic simulation, and the control units operated by the surgeon. Minimally invasive surgery telemanipulation systems are intended for use in abdominal (e.g., appendectomy, cholecystectomy) and thoracic (e.g., cardiac surgery) procedures.
