Technical communication: First robotic ultrasound-guided nerve blocks in humans using the Magellan system.


BACKGROUND Ultrasound-guided nerve blocks are becoming a standard of modern anesthesia. We developed a robotic system, Magellan, to perform nerve blocks using a remote control center. METHODS Thirteen patients were enrolled in this pilot study. The Magellan system consists of 3 main components: a joystick, a robotic arm, and a software control system. The… (More)
