Surgeons from Ankara College’s Ibn Sina Hospital have efficiently carried out the primary two mind surgical procedures on the earth utilizing robotic intervention by way of the cranium on intracranial tissue with the Da Vinci robotic.
The surgical procedures had been carried out in specifically designed working rooms by Dr. Umir Eroğlu, the mind and nerve surgical procedure college member, underneath the chairmanship of professor Dr. Şükrü Çağlar, the pinnacle of the neurosurgery division on the College of Medication at Ankara College.
Chatting with Anadolu Company (AA), Eroğlu recalled that the Ankara College neurosurgery crew had began the robotic surgical procedure operations, notably intraoral, 5 years in the past and has since operated on quite a few sufferers.
Noting that within the acknowledged interval, robot-assisted surgical procedure as a technique has been practiced worldwide, particularly in spinal surgical procedures, Eroğlu stated that the newly developed applied sciences began to take away the restrictions when it comes to surgical procedures, as medical doctors with the brand new robotic instruments at the moment are capable of carry out higher surgical procedures.
“We began to make use of robotic surgical procedure in mind surgical procedures in our clinic. After opening the skull with the routine technique, we used the Da Vinci robotic to conduct the surgical procedure. Thus, we now have efficiently applied the primary mind surgical procedure on the earth during which this technique was used,” Eroğlu stated.
Offering data on the main points of surgical procedures carried out with the Da Vinci robotic, Eroğlu stated one of many operations was on an arachnoid cyst within the mind and the opposite was a tumor near the mind tissue.
Emphasizing the benefits of robotic-assisted mind surgical procedures, Eroğlu confused the precision of the robotic instruments as they’re able to extra exact actions than palms. He additionally added that the acknowledged technique is efficient in appropriate instances.
Eroğlu additionally stated that the groundbreaking final result of the surgical procedure will quickly be revealed in one of many top-tier neurosurgery journals. Stating that that they had elevated the variety of surgical procedures because the first operation 5 years in the past, Eroğlu opined that the event in neurosurgery and different surgical procedures will shift towards hybrid surgical procedures.
Stating that the aim of the event of the Da Vinci robotic is to function on astronauts in house, Eroğlu stated 7G expertise is required to implement this.
“The longer term is heading towards this. Within the close to future, a surgeon from Türkiye will be capable to function on a affected person within the Netherlands.” Explaining that they’re writing a thesis on telesurgery and analysis and growth (R&D) research on this path, Eroğlu additionally stated that the acknowledged expertise requires monetary assets and technological infrastructure, including: “We is probably not at that stage but, however we’re engaged on it.”
In the meantime, Dr. Şükrü Çağlar famous their groups carried out hourslong preparations forward of the surgical procedure. “We are able to name it a hybrid robotic. This technique must be seen because the expertise of the longer term,” he stated.
