Endovascular surgery is a specialized,
minimally invasive procedure that involves
carefully twisting and guiding a
thin medical wire through the body's arteries
and vessels to a target location, in
a way that avoids damaging vessel walls.
The procedure typically requires years of
training for a surgeon to master.
Robotic systems are being explored as
assistive technologies in endovascular
surgery. These systems mainly involve
motor drives that advance and retract a
wire while twisting it through the body's
vasculature.

guided by trained surgeons at larger medical centers. (Credit: MIT)

" But having a robot twist with the same
level of sophistication [as a surgeon] is
challenging, " Kim notes. " Our system is
based on a fundamentally different
mechanism. "
The team's new system builds on work
from 2019, in which they demonstrated
steering a magnetically controlled
thread through a life-sized silicone model
of the brain's blood vessels. They did
so at the time using a handheld magnet,
about the size of a soup can, that they
manually manipulated.
