Conventional navigation systems for minimally invasive orthopedic surgery require a secondary monitor to display guidance information generated with CT or MRI images. Newer systems use augmented reality to project surgical plans into binocular glasses. These surgical procedures are often mentally challenging and cumbersome to perform. A comprehensive(More)
We have developed a surgical robotic system for femoral fracture reduction employing indirect traction. Indirect traction in fracture reduction is a generally used surgical method for preventing complications such as bone splits caused by high stress on bones. For traction, a patient's foot is gripped by a jig and pulled to the distal side. Indirect(More)
Percutaneous Vertebroplasty (PVP) is an effective and less invasive medical treatment for vertebral osteoporotic compression fractures. However, this operative procedure is quite difficult because an arcus vertebra, which is narrow, is needled with accuracy, and an operator's hand is exposed to X-ray continuously. We have developed a needle insertion robot(More)
   In most orthopedic surgeries, knowing how far to insert surgical tools is crucial. The objective of this study was to provide guidance information on depth without tracking surgical tools. A previously developed laser guidance system for linear surgical tool insertion uses two laser beams that display the insertion point and orientation on the skin(More)
We have newly developed a 2D array transducer to control the behavior of microbubbles, which is different from that for HIFU therapy, to emit continuous wave by designing acoustic field including multiple focal points. In the experiment using a straight path model, we have confirmed that higher concentration of acoustic energy does not result more(More)
This paper provides a novel method for three-dimensional tracking of ultrasound images. One of the issues to determine the position of a ultrasound image plane is the thickness of the image plane. The proposed methodology address the issue by the calibration phantom using a fiducial sphere with the diameter of 5.5 mm because comet-trail artifact can be(More)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Little is known about the approximation of coapted edges in sutureless laser-assisted vessel welding. Tissue shrinkage by laser irradiation may cause coapted edges to separate, reducing strength of welding. This may be avoided by preloaded longitudinal compression on the tissue edges to be welded. This study compared welding(More)
