To perform an operation in the classical way, an incision is made in the skin and the underlying tissues. An alternative for this way of operating is minimally invasive surgery. Here only small incisions are made in the skin and operations are performed by using special instruments. Visual feedback is obtained with a camera producing a 2Ddisplay. Another important minimally invasive operating method is based on the use of catheters in arteries and venes.
This research project aims at decreasing the negative effects and limitations which accompany minimally invasive surgery and interventional techniques, so that these can be used more widely, thus bringing less damage to the patient and decreasing the costs for society.
