We present an advanced version of our robotic setup for paranasal sinus surgery that was developed at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery in Erlangen, Germany. The system was interconnected with a redundant navigation system for increasing intraoperative safety while performing telemanipulatory as well as fully automated(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this work was to determine the feasibility of a robotic-assisted and fully automated approach to the sphenoid sinus. An image-guided robotic system was designed to address potential human errors in performing transsphenoidal sinus surgery by combining the reproducible accuracy of a robotic system with standard computer navigation.
