Abstract

A handheld Smart Micromanipulation Aided Robotic-surgery Tool (SMART) micro-forceps guided by a fiber-optic common-path optical coherence tomography (CP-OCT) sensor is presented. A fiber-optic CPOCT distance and motion sensor is integrated into the shaft of a microforceps. The tool tip position is manipulated longitudinally through a closed loop control using a piezoelectric motor. This novel forceps design could significantly enhance safety, efficiency and surgical outcomes. The basic grasping and peeling functions of the micro-forceps are evaluated in dry phantoms and in a biological tissue model. As compared to freehand use, targeted grasping and peeling performance assisted by active tremor compensation, significantly improves micro-forceps user performance.
