Minimal invasive instruments

The potential of vacuum technique as a manipulation and stabilization technique for laparoscopic surgery.

In laparoscopic surgery specially designed instruments are required to manipulate the soft organs in a safe way. This is particularly true for the bowels since bowel damage can have severe consequences for the patient, potentially even death. In other application domains vacuum technique is often used for delicate and precise manipulations because of the high level of control. This project investigates the potential of vacuum technique as a manipulation and stabilization technique for laparoscopic surgery.
