AI-aided laparoscope-holder robots to make laparoscopic surgery more accurate
To improve the efficiency of laparoscopic surgery, laparoscope-holder robots have been introduced as a replacement for the assistant surgeon because of their advantages in precise positioning, fast tracking, stable movement, and being free of interference of emotion and fatigue. Although the foot pedal and speech recognition modes of HCI have been developed and widely applied in laparoscope-holder robots, they are “passive-controlled,” where they need to receive direct commands from the surgeon to operate; therefore, they inevitably distract the surgeon in surgeries.
The research team led by Xin Gao, Suzhou Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences has innovatively developed a marker-free surgical instrument tracking framework for active-control of laparoscope-holder robots based on object extraction via deep learning (DL) and a segmentation model. Compared with the existing marker-free surgical instrument tracking framework, the object extraction via DL-based marker-free tracking framework proposed by Xin's team can achieve more accurate and faster tracking of marker-free surgical instruments, providing important guiding signifcance for the application of laparoscope-holder robots in laparoscopic surgeries.

HIFU for the treatment of difficult colorectal liver metastases with unsuitable indications for
resection and radiofrequency ablation: a phase I clinical trial
HIFU 治疗不适合切除和射频消融的难治性结直肠癌肝转移:I 期临床试验
HIFU treatment was performed in 13 patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) but were contraindicated for resection and radiofrequency ablation.The median follow-up period was 25 months. The 2-year progression-free survival (PFS) was 16.7%, and the median PFS was 9 months. Notably, the 2-year overall survival (OS) was 77.8%, and the median OS was 25 months. This study indicates that the HIFU treatment is safe, is able to achieve a good tumor response rate and long-term prognosis even when the foci were in high-risk locations, and should be considered for patients who were considered unsuitable for other local treatments.
该研究纳入了 13 位不适合切除和射频消融治疗的难治性结直肠癌肝转移患者。HIFU 术后,中位随访时间长达 25 个月,两年无疾病进展生存率(PFS)为 16.7%,中位无疾病进展生存期为 9 个月。值得一提的是,两年整体生存率为 77.8%,中位整体生存期为 25 个月。该研究表明,HIFU 治疗难治性结直肠癌肝转移是有效的,即使病灶处于高危部位,也能达到良好的肿瘤客观有效率和长期预后,不适合其他局部治疗的结直肠癌肝转移患者可考虑 HIFU 治疗。
