Robot Assisted Cardiac Surgery Course: Cardiovascular Imaging Submitted by: Alper Yaman Instructor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Cengizhan Öztürk
What is robot assisted surgery? Application of computer assisted robotics to enhance surgeon’s capability to carry out various “minimally invasive” surgical procedures.
The advantages of robotic surgery Faster, easier and steadier surgery More accuracy Enhanced visualisation, zooming Minimally invasive .
The advantages of robotic surgery 2 Less pain to patient Shorter recovery time Shorter hospital stays 
Robot Assisted Surgery Approach Perception & imaging by sensors and cameras to monitor the heart
Robot Assisted Surgery Approach 2 Arms and wrists for clamping, suturing, and severing. Control Panel
Technical Information Registration Preoperative images (CT or MRI) are registered both to stabilize target point images on the monitor and to guide the manipulators . Imaging Fast video cameras are used to obtain operative images.
Technical Information 2 Robot Positioning Optimal position of the robot should be provided concerning with degrees of freedom of the manipulator .
Technical Information 3 Port Placement: Entry points are selected by images on the port. Robot is registered to the patient. Ports are expressed in the robot coordinate frame and used to guide the surgeon .
Heart Beat Synchronization “Motion Cancelling Robot System” Visual Synchronization: Provides stabilized target point images on the monitor. Motion Synchronization: The slave robot is synchronized with the heart beat. Master – Slave Control: Transfers the master motion to control the slave robot .
Haptics and Augmented Reality Haptics Applying tactile sensation and control to interaction with computer applications. Augmented Reality Computer graphics are superimposed or composited with real images.
Haptic Virtual Fixtures Software-generated force and position signals applied to human operators. To improve the safety, accuracy, and speed of manipulation tasks. Integrates robots accuracy and precision with human intelligence .
Haptic Virtual Fixtures 2 Guidance Virtual Fixtures: guides the robot along desired paths (a). Forbidden-Region Virtual Fixtures: Keep the robot out of forbidden regions (b).  
An example to robots “Da Vinci Surgical System” Intuitive nature of the surgeon’s hand movements Components: A surgeon console Patient-side cart Instruments Image processing equipment
An example to robots “Da Vinci Surgical System” 2 Benefits For The Surgeon: Improved dexterity Enhanced 3D visualisation and magnification Greater surgical precision Increased range of motion Better ergonomics
An example to robots “Da Vinci Surgical System” 3 Robotic articulated instrumentation daVinci prototype 1997 
Transmyocardial Revascularization Laser is used to open tiny holes (transmyocardial channels) on myocardium. Angiogenesis: Laser stimulates new blood vessels to grow. Channels heal on the outside but remain open on the inside. 
Results and Discussion Robot assisted cardiac surgery is combining various disciplines: robotics, computer vision and biomedical engineering. It’s advantages are: Faster, easier and steadier surgery More accuracy Enhanced visualisation, zooming Minimally invasive Less pain to patient Shorter recovery time Shorter hospital stays
