Robotic-assisted total hip arthroplasty (THA) has been shown to demonstrate a variety of clinical benefits for patients, including reductions in dislocation rates, decreased impingement, and improved implant longevity. However, variability in surgeon experience with robotic systems can lead to inconsistent results. Mastery of the initial acetabular registration step is critical to performing a predictable and accurate robotic-assisted total hip replacement.

Though usefulness of robot assisted surgery has been largely reported and accepted, robot assisted gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) treatment is rare. Hence, the aim of this study is to report a...
Ureterosciatic hernias (USH) are rare conditions, reported in less than 100 patients worldwide. Robot-assisted surgical management has been reported only twice in the available literature. We present ...
The costs of robot-assisted surgery (RAS) still represent a critical issue. Kulaylat et al. reported a propensity-matched study to compare the outcomes of colorectal surgery between a robotic and a la...
Robotic ultrasound promises continuous, volumetric, and non-ionizing tracking of organ motion during radiation therapy. However, placement of the robot is critical because it is radio-opaque and might...
Robot-assisted surgery has numerous patient benefits compared to open surgery including smaller incisions, lower risk of infection, less post-operative pain, shorter hospital stays and a quicker retur...
This study compared robot-assisted total mesorectal excision (RTME) and laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (LTME) with regard to urinary function, sexual function and sphincter- preser...
This research aims to integrate and develop a novel Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) controlled soft robotic glove, evaluate the ability of the glove in achieving common hand grasping postur...
This study compared robot-assisted total mesorectal excision to treat very low rectal cancer within 2 cm from the dentate line to avoid permanent colostomy. improves the quality of life wi...
This randomized controlled study was designed to evaluate the accuracy, safety and clinical outcomes of the robot assisted spinal surgery.
This is an intervention study including a baseline data collection, 6 weeks of a training intervention with robotic-assisted manual training, a post-intervention data collection, and a 4 w...

Computer-assisted study of methods for obtaining useful quantitative solutions to problems that have been expressed mathematically.
Computer-assisted processing of electric, ultrasonic, or electronic signals to interpret function and activity.
Computer-assisted mathematical calculations of beam angles, intensities of radiation, and duration of irradiation in radiotherapy.
Analysis based on the mathematical function first formulated by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier in 1807. The function, known as the Fourier transform, describes the sinusoidal pattern of any fluctuating pattern in the physical world in terms of its amplitude and its phase. It has broad applications in biomedicine, e.g., analysis of the x-ray crystallography data pivotal in identifying the double helical nature of DNA and in analysis of other molecules, including viruses, and the modified back-projection algorithm universally used in computerized tomography imaging, etc. (From Segen, The Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
