Optimal Port Placement in Robot-Assisted Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
A computer-based algorithm is being developed which, using preoperative images, provides the surgeon with a list of feasible port triplets ranked according to tool dexterity and endoscope view quality at each surgical site involved in a procedure. Computer simulation will allow the surgeon to select from among the proposed port locations. The procedure selected for the development of the system consists of left internal mammary artery (LIMA) take-down and bypass grafting. Human trials will begin within a month. Data collected from these trials will be used to validate the system.
