The aim of this study was to create an access canal to the inner ear, by drilling, and perform the cochleostomy for cochlear implant surgery using robot guidance. A robot, a surgical drill and an Image-Guided Surgery (IGS) system were combined in a closed-loop setup. Ten temporal bones were scanned at the planning stages of the procedure. The robot guided(More)
Hypothesis: High-resolution imaging as provided by flat-panel based Volume Computed Tomography (fpVCT) could increase navigation accuracy and could therefore be valuable on lateral skull base procedures. O. Majdani S. Bartling Th. Rodt Methods: In the first part of the study we evaluated the accuracy of the image guided surgery (IGS) system using a(More)

Cochlear implants (CI) are electronic devices incorporating an electrode inserted into the human cochlea for direct electric stimulation of the auditory nerve. The implantation has become the standard treatment for patients with severe-to-profound sensorineural loss not aidable with conventional hearing aids. The state of the art operative technique is a(More)
Due to increasing claims on high precision surgery, robotic assistance is becoming an emerging and highly demanded technology. Especially in surgical procedures in regions with complex anatomy mechatronical devices could help prevent iatrogen damaging of risk structures. In Otolaryngology particular cochlear implantation is a procedure characterized by a(More)
Medizinische Navigationssysteme stellen ein routinemäßig eingesetztes, intraoperatives Assistenzsystem dar. Moderne und insbesondere minimal invasive Operationstechniken stellen jedoch Anforderungen an die Genauigkeit der Lokalisation von Patient und Instrument, die von stereo-optischen oder elektro-magnetischen Navigationssystemen nicht mehr gewährleistet(More)
Die Cochlear Implant (CI)-Operation ist bei Taubheit als Standardbehandlung anerkannt und wird zunehmend zur Behandlungvhochgradiger Schwerhörigkeit durchgeführt. Weltweit wurden bereits mehr als 150.000 Implantate eingesetzt. Das Bestreben nach der Verkleinerung des Zugangsweges hat die Verminderung der Operationsdauer, der operationsbedingten Morbidität(More)
A Strategic Planning Committee was established by the Transvaal Provincial Administration to plan for and reposition nursing education in the Transvaal. Various focus areas were identified, including the Focus Area Curricula. The aim of the Focus Area Curricula Committee is the establishment of curricula for the education and training of all categories of(More)
