Bladder cancer, a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, presents a unique opportunity for aggressive treatment due to the ease of transurethral accessibility. While the location affords advantages, transurethral resection of bladder tumors can pose a difficult challenge for surgeons encumbered by current instrumentation or difficult(More)
Constrained motion control of robotic end-effectors is essential for safe operation in confined spaces such as the urinary bladder. This paper presents the clinical motivation for the development of new control algorithms for robotic-assisted transurethral bladder resection and surveillance using multisegment continuum robots. The anatomy, workspace, and(More)
