Breakthrough in medicine: Indian surgeon performed heart surgery, remotely, using a robot

A surgeon from India performed the first remote heart surgery (about 30 km). The procedure, known as coronary intervention, can help open blood vessels in patients with atherosclerosis (plaque accumulates in the blood vessels, limiting blood flow). Innovations in telemedicine and robotic surgery can provide untold chances for patients who otherwise have difficulty accessing the healthcare system.

During the procedure, the CorPath GRX robot, developed by Corindus, inserted a small tool called a stent to open blood vessels in the heart.
The remote procedure was performed by Dr. ROM. Tejas Patel, from the Apex Institute in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.

For this intervention, the medical team created a remote workstation identical to the one that was connected to the robot via a high-speed Internet connection. Video cameras were also installed in the operating room, which provided images to the surgeon. A couple of surgeons in the operating room followed the procedure.http://fiatforum.lv/http://fiatforum.lv/
