Abstract

In microsurgery, the physiological hand tremor of the surgeon remains an important factor affecting procedure efficiency, risk of complications, and ultimately, the efficacy of treatment. The micro-scissors are routinely employed to perform precise sharp dissection of delicate tissues. Here, we present a dual optical coherence tomography (OCT) distance sensor guided, two-motor, horizontal smart micro-manipulation aided robotic-surgery tool (SMART) micro-scissors. It is intended to improve surgeon performance by retaining all of the attributes of the horizontal scissors while implementing proof-of-concept use of two functional motors to provide tremor cancellation.
