Surgeons in Europe have reported a successful outcome after using Intuitive Surgical's minimally invasive surgery system to repair a congenital heart defect. The system, which provides a high-resolution three-dimensional image of the surgical field, uses a tiny computer-enhanced mechanical wrist to position and manoeuvre pencil-sized detachable surgical instruments through very small incisions. The Mountain View, California-based company is in the process of applying for FDA approval to market the system in the US.
