Virtual Incision is developing an in vivo new generation robotic surgical device. The patented future robot will performs Minimal Access, single incision abdominal surgery using a single incision with no specialized infrastructure. Your initial putting on the technology will probably be colon resection procedures. Virtual Incision Corporation grew from collaboration from a University of Nebraska Clinic surgeon considering improving surgery practices plus a University of Nebraska-Lincoln mechanical engineer with understanding designing robots. After learning with their mutual interests, they began developing mini-robots and testing them in animal models. Their exciting research generated progression of a spin-off company, Virtual Incision Corporation, to commercialize and produce these novel devices. These remotely controlled robots could be inserted via a single tiny incision to perform minimally invasive surgeries, significantly reducing pain and recovery times for patients. Each camera-carrying robot would be remotely controlled with the surgeon and will be capable of performing complex surgeries including gall bladder removal and colon resection. The US Army, the main Dod, has significantly funded principle research and continuing development of prototype surgical robots. The National Institutes of Health and NASA are also key funding sources for these researchers.   Read more...

Good vision is most important component of a successful laparoscopic surgery. The security and effectiveness of any advanced laparoscopic surgery utilizes the clarity from the image given by the rod-lens system and the high definition 3 chip camera. In Laparoscopic surgery clear vision ensures precision, uninterrupted flow from the surgical movements and promotes ergonomics of efficient surgical team function. Recent technological advances have improved the caliber of the optic equipment used in laparoscopic surgery, with improved lenses, better 3 Chip HD cameras, high-definition monitors and stronger LED illumination now being available. At present there are many foreign and domestic companies produce various endoscopic equipments- functional, reliable, ergonomic, standing out for their modern design. Only by applying to state of the art endovideosystem it is possible for operating surgeon and gynecologist to act coordinately with two or more manipulator operating instrument simultaneously bringing closer the operative competences of laparoscopic surgery to those of traditional surgery, and in some cases surpassing each other if the vision is good. One of the most struggling part of vision is fog. The fogging can be easily eliminated by warming the telescope in hot water flask.

Mutations in a single gene MED12 occur in about 70% of uterine fibroids. Mutations in MED12 are also responsible for at least two other different forms of X-linked dominant diseases like mental retardation, Lujan-Fryns syndrome and FG syndrome, as well as instances of prostate cancer. MED12-related disorders are inherited within an X-linked manner. If mother of an proband has a disease-causing mutation, the possibility of transmitting it in each pregnancy is 50%. Males who inherit the mutation is going to be affected; females who inherit the mutation is going to be carriers and can typically not be affected. No male with a MED12-related disorder has reproduced. Carrier testing for at-risk female relatives and prenatal testing for pregnancies at increased risk are possible when the disease-causing mutation inherited may be identified.   Read more...

It is likely that developing a robotic surgery in India could be daunting for a lot of. While Intuitive Surgical has brought an innovative approach to minimal access surgery, it is too expensive considering its growth deceleration. Moreover, this quarter saw greater growth deceleration than in either of the first two quarters. However, this decline may be temporary as the same old dynamics are still in place. There are plenty of procedures still to be added by da vinci. The are plenty of hospitals both domestic and abroad that want and need the machine. There is still no formidable competition among surgical robot. Intuitive Surgical had a strong fourth quarter, with net earnings of $175 million over $151 million last year. Earnings were $4.25, compared to $3.75 last year.   Read more...

Leptin is often referred to as the obesity hormone or fat hormone but also the starvation hormone. When scientists discovered leptin in 1994, excitement arose about Leptins potential as a dramatic fat loss treatment. Even today, the Internet is set with sites that sell leptin supplements. Giving leptin by injection will help in a cases in which patient make no leptin at all in their fat, which causes them to overeat and become morbid obese. When those people received leptin by injection, they stopped overeating and will lose weight. But for the vast majority of people, the treatment will not work, nor is leptin approved as a medical treatment for weight loss till today because the body immediately become resistant to leptin. Leptin has direct effects on bone to increase bone health and bone mineral density. Leptin may even affect women's fertility. If the brain does not sense leptin, fertility will be affected.   Read more...
