Respiratory motion compensation for the robot-guided laser osteotome

Abstract


Purpose

The use of a robot-guided laser osteotome for median sternotomy is impeded by prohibiting cutting inaccuracies due to respiration-induced motions of the thorax. With this paper, we advance today’s methodologies in sternotomy procedures by introducing the concept of novel 3D functional cuts and a respiratory motion compensation algorithm for the computer-assisted and robot-guided laser osteotome, CARLO®. 193 more words
