But the real revolutionary use for VR tech will be with the ongoing development of more powerful and immersive training and educational applications.

TUBAL sterilisation through Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) has been used abroad for more than 10 years, but is still a relatively new technique in Thailand.

The method involves inserting a tiny camera and surgical instrument through the vagina, which is the body's natural opening, so as to view the area that cannot normally be seen. This means there is no need to make any abdominal incisions. This technique is not only used for sterilisation of women, but can also be applied to other treatments, such as removing the fallopian tubes due to an ectopic pregnancy, removing an ovarian cyst, as well as performing a hysterectomy, with no postoperative scarring.   Read more...

Medical error is not included on death certificates or in rankings of cause of death. Martin Makary and Michael Daniel assess its contribution to mortality and call for better reporting. The annual list of the most common causes of death in the United States, compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), informs public awareness and national research priorities each year. The list is created using death certificates filled out by physicians, funeral directors, medical examiners, and coroners. However, a major limitation of the death certificate is that it relies on assigning an International Classification of Disease (ICD) code to the cause of death.1 As a result, causes of death not associated with an ICD code, such as human and system factors, are not captured. The science of safety has matured to describe how communication breakdowns, diagnostic errors, poor judgment, and inadequate skill can directly result in patient harm and death. We analyzed the scientific literature on medical error to identify its contribution to US deaths in relation to causes listed by the CDC
