A Boom Time for Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery, which was still considered something of a novelty just a decade ago, is fast becoming a preferred technique for many common surgical procedures. This approach-in which the surgeon operates on the patient by deftly manipulating the computerized "arms" of a surgical robot, guided by a high-definition camera that provides a magnified image of the post-operative provides a number of advantages over open and laparoscopic surgery, including excellent visualization, smaller incisions than open surgery (And thus less trauma and faster recovery for the patient), and an ability to smoothly and precisely perform delicate maneuvers such as suturing.

These features is particularly useful in complicated procedures that radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate) to treat prostate cancer, and hysterectomy (removal of uterus), which is done to treat a variety of benign and malignant conditions. In 2009, three quarters of all radical prostatectomy procedures in the US-about 90 000 operations were performed robotically-. That same year, over 70,000 robotic hysterectomies were performed in the United States, more than double the year's total. Robotic surgery is also increasingly used to treat other conditions. Intuitive Surgical Inc., manufacturer of the da Vinci surgical robot (mark used by the overwhelming majority of medical centers) reports that more than 200,000 operations were made in 2009 with the da Vinci Surgical robot-in increase of 35% over 2008 and this growth shows no signs of slowing.

Robotic surgery's growing popularity reflects several converging factors. First, access to robotic surgery is growing: More than 1,200 da Vinci robots are now deployed in U.S. medical centers, and more surgeons are trained to use their. Demand has grown too, as the public becomes increasingly aware of the advantages offered by this minimally-invasive, high-precision approach. This trend has been spurred by a growing number of studies showing that the outcome of robotic surgery are as good or better than other surgical techniques. A large study published last October, for example, found that 87% of men who had robot-assisted prostate surgery were cancer-free five years later.

In addition, robotic surgery is now used in more and more conditions. Urological and gynecological surgery continue to be those areas where it is used most: In addition to prostatectomy, urologic surgeons are now using robot-assisted surgery to remove benign and malignant tumors kidney (the da Vinci is particularly suitable for partial nephrectomy, where the tumor is excised while the rest of the kidney intact), to treat bladder cancer and adrenal cancer, and to perform pyeloplasty and other urinary tract reconstruction procedures, which require precise suturing of the ureter and other delicate structures. In gynecological surgery, the da Vinci prove very effective to remove uterine fibroids and endometriosis, the surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse, and surgical treatment of cervical cancer, early stage ovarian cancer and early-stage cervical cancer.

At the same time, the da Vinci is increasingly being used by surgeons in other fields. One promising area involves the gastrointestinal tract and liver, where it now becomes used for treatment of colon cancer, liver cancer, bile duct cancer, esophageal cancer and pancreatic cancer and benign conditions such as colitis and gall bladder disease. Robots are also employed for head-and-throat procedures such as cancer of the thyroid gland and neck cancer treatment. In addition, cardiothoracic surgeons discover the benefits of robotic surgery, which allows them to perform complex surgery on coronary arteries and valves through the incision between the ribs, avoiding the need to cut through the patient's breast bone. The da Vinci Si, Intutive most advanced surgical robot, is now used to perform coronary bypass surgery and mitral valve repair. As more cardiothoracic surgeons learning to use da Vinci for these common procedures, this part of the surgery-like so many others-is one where robotic surgery seems destined to become a standard part of America's surgical repertoire.

USB to TRS (Mic Jack)?

I recently purchased a USB condenser microphone, and is interested in creating a makeshift boom microphone out of it. I have the boom arm and tripod already, but my camera just accept TRS (mic jack) audio. Is there any way to convert my USB out to TRS in?

com. a USB microphone has digital output that can only be sent to a computer. plus condensors microphones require a DC voltage to function, USB-types get the voltage from the computer's USB port. analog input the camcorder does not have DC voltage to operate a condensors mic. what you need to get is an analog microphone, and if condensors, one that has AA batteries for operation.
