Design and Development of Innovative Integrated Technology for Endoscopic Surgeries

Swamy A and Achanta CR


Compared to open surgery, there are significantly fewer alternatives to control bleeding when it occurs. Endoscopic surgery now includes endoluminal surgery as a crucial part. This article looks at the latest developments in endoscopic surgery, including the use of AI. The use of equipment specifically designed for endoscopic surgery distinguishes it from open surgery. Since endoscopic surgical instruments must be inserted through trocars with a round seal, these devices are usually always designed to resemble tubes and create a gas-tight seal when the instruments are inserted. Due to the limited degrees of freedom, special additional criteria apply when an instrument is inserted through a normal trocar sleeve. One consequence of this is that the suture needles cannot be optimally aligned. The circumstances for inserting endoscopic instruments generally lead to a non-ergonomic operating posture, so that the surgeon is not in the best possible condition to perform his tasks. There are fewer opportunities for the use of ligatures to cut vascular structures than in open surgery.
