This article gives an overview of research performed in the field of haptic information feedback during minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Literature has been consulted from 1985 to present. The studies show that currently, haptic information feedback is rare, but promising, in MIS. Surgeons benefit from additional feedback about force information. When it comes to grasping forces and perceiving slip, little is known about the advantages additional haptic information can give to prevent tissue… 
Haptic feedback in robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery
TLDR
The designs of existing commercial RMIS systems are not conducive for force feedback, and creative solutions are needed to create compelling tactile feedback systems.
Perception of Stiffness in Laparoscopy - the Fulcrum Effect
TLDR
It is found that a nonsymmetrical ratio causes bias in the perceived stiffness when novice tangential probing is compared to radial probing, and haptic experts did not show similar perceptual bias.
Haptic Control for Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery
Minimally invasive robotic surgery has been investigated in various surgical application due to high accuracy, fine manipulation capability, tele-operation. Haptic feedback plays a significant role
Reviewing the technological challenges associated with the development of a laparoscopic palpation device
TLDR
The state‐of‐the‐art in laparoscopic palpation devices (LPDs) is reviewed with particular focus on device mechanisms, sensors and data analysis, and the challenges that must be overcome to create effective LPD systems that measure and display haptic information to the surgeon for improved intraoperative assessment.

TLDR
Results show clear superiority of soft guidance virtual fixtures over other forms of feedback, leading to performance levels above those obtained in open surgery.
1 Effects of Haptic Feedback and Stereoscopy on a Surgical Training Task in Virtual Reality
INTRODUCTION Minimally invasive surgical techniques offer patients the promise of smaller incisions, less pain, and shorter recovery times [4]. New technologies have allowed this rise in minimally
Augmentation of haptic feedback for teleoperated robotic surgery
TLDR
In case haptic feedback and haptic assistance are combined appropriately, benefits of both haptic modalities can be exploited and capabilities of the human–machine system are improved compared to usage of exclusively one of the haptic information.
Haptics in Robot-Assisted Surgery: Challenges and Benefits
TLDR
Objectives and challenges of deploying haptic technologies in surgical robotics are discussed, and a systematic review is performed on works that have studied the effects of providing haptic information to the users in major branches of robotic surgery.
Haptic Perception of Distance-To-Break for Compliant Tissues in a Surgical Simulator
In minimally invasive surgery (MIS), it is critical to have the ability to accurately interpret haptic information and apply appropriate force magnitudes onto soft tissue in order to minimize tissue
Ergonomics of laparoscopic graspers and the importance of haptic feedback: the surgeons’ perspective
TLDR
The high prevalence of physical complaints directly related to Laparoscopic instruments among laparoscopic surgeons is still relevant, and the potential benefits of enhanced haptic feedback in laparoscopy are recognized by laparoscope specialists.

TLDR
First, the design of a user interface that can be used to incorporate haptic interaction in robot-assisted MIS is discussed and a laparoscopic end effector that meets MlS requirements and is instrumented for haptic feedback is discussed.
Application of haptic feedback to robotic surgery.
TLDR
Evidence is described that visual sensory substitution permits the surgeon to apply more consistent, precise, and greater tensions to fine suture materials without breakage during robot-assisted knot tying.

TLDR
Experiments are described to characterize this problem, as well as several methods to provide haptic feedback in order to improve surgeon's performance, including active operator assistance through "virtual fixtures" and the automatic acquisition of tissue properties.
Haptics in minimally invasive surgical simulation and training
TLDR
This work discusses important aspects of haptics in MISST, such as haptic rendering and haptic recording and playback, and discusses the importance of net forces resulting from tool-tissue interactions in surgery.
Visually Perceived Force Feedback in Simulated Robotic Surgery
Current robotic systems for minimally invasive surgery do not have effective means of providing haptics to the surgeon. It was hypothesized that providing an analog for force feedback through the
Effect of sensory substitution on suture manipulation forces for surgical teleoperation.
TLDR
The results indicate that visual feedback, which provides continuous force information, would improve robot-assisted performance during complex surgical tasks such as knot tying with fine sutures.

Important aspects of haptics in MISST, such as haptic rendering and haptic recording and plasmapheresis, are discussed.
Reliable and Enhanced Stiffness Perception in Soft-tissue Telemanipulation
TLDR
How to extend human perception beyond differential thresholds and thus enhance sensitivity is described, which shows that the operator is able to discriminate tinier differences using a telemanipulation system with enhanced sensitivity than through direct manipulation.
