Challenges of Technology Integration and Computer-Assisted Surgery
- The Challenges of Clinical Validation of Emerging Technologies: Computer-Assisted Devices for Surgery. Janda, Michel; Buch, Barbara // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Feb2009 Supplement 1, Vol. 91-A Issue S1, p17
Over the last decade, the use of computers and robotics in medicine has increased commensurate with emergent advances in technology. This article largely focuses on the challenges that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration faces when evaluating new technologies for entry into the market. How...
- Navigation Using Fluoro-CT Technology. Gruetzner, Paul Alfred; Waelti, Heinz; Vock, Bernd; Hebecker, Axel; Nolte, Lutz-Peter; Wentzensen, Andreas // European Journal of Trauma;Jun2004, Vol. 30 Issue 3, p161
Background: The mobile SIREMOBILÂ® Iso-CÂ³D C-arm is a device that permits the intraoperative three-dimensional (3-D) representation of bony structures (multiplanar reconstructions). Linking to navigation makes it possible to transfer the generated 3-D data directly to the navigation system....
- Section I: Setting the Stage. Stubbs, Allston J.; Gray, Martha L.; Pearle, Andrew D. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Feb2009 Supplement 1, Vol. 91-A Issue S1, p3
The article discusses computer-assisted orthopedic surgery and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). The AAOS held a symposium on computer-assisted surgery of the knee and hip to gain knowledge of the imaging and surgical navigation treatment of knee and hip disease. Treatment...
- Improved Therapy of Calcaneal Fractures by Intraoperative 3D-Fluoroscopy and Locked-Screw Plate Fixation. Queitsch, Christian; Schulz, Arndt P.; Haustedt, Nils; Simon, Lutz; Fuchs, Stefan // European Journal of Trauma;Oct2006, Vol. 32 Issue 5, p471
The operative therapy of intraarticular fractures of the calcaneus is now an established surgical standard. The aim is an accurate reduction of the fracture with reconstruction of the Boehlerâ€™s angle, the length and the subtalar joint. Intraoperative 3D-fluoroscopy with the Siremobil...
- Comparison of the radiological results between fluoroscopy-assisted and navigation-guided total knee arthroplasty. Jung, Young-Bok; Lee, Han-Jun; Jung, Ho-Joong; Song, Kwang-Sup; Lee, Jae-Sung; Yang, Jae // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Mar2009, Vol. 17 Issue 3, p286
The efficacy and accuracy of computer navigation have been proved during recent years. But most of recent studies focused on the coronal alignment in total knee arthroplasty and less on sagittal alignment. We retrospectively compared the results of the radiographs of 35 primary TKAs using a...
- COMPUTERIZED NAVIGATION FOR THE INTERNAL FIXATION OF FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES. Liebergall, Meir; Ben-David, Dror; Weil, Yoram; Peyser, Amos; Mosheiff, Rami // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Aug2006, Vol. 88-A Issue 8, p1748
Background: Accurate placement of cannulated screws is essential to ensure secure fixation of femoral neck fractures. We compared computerized navigation and conventional fluoroscopy with regard to the accuracy of screw placement for the fixation of femoral neck fractures. Methods: We...
- Expertise in Orthopedic Navigation. D'Ambrosia, Robert D. // Orthopedics;Oct2005 Supplement, Vol. 28, ps1215
The article discusses reports on orthopedics published within the issue, including one on the use of the OrthoPilot navigation systems for surgery of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA).
- Pardon me, but is that your credit card singing? Buess, Jim // New Scientist;10/5/91, Vol. 132 Issue 1789, p54
Reports on a light-activated credit card developed in Japan. How this mind-saving device will help in the retrieval of the card; Other mind-saving devices; Benefit of freeing our minds for more important things.
