Microsurgery Devices Are Increasingly Advancing With Development Of Novel Technologies In The Medical Field

Microsurgery is a form of surgery that uses an operating microscope to perform delicate procedures. This type of surgery focuses on restoring damaged tissues and reattaching severed body parts. It can be performed on patients with a variety of medical conditions, including cleft palate and ear infections. Some of the more common types of microsurgery include anastomosis and endoscopic microvascular resection.

An instrument used in microsurgery can be a simple pair of forceps, a pair of scissors, a light pipe, and a laser. The instruments are often bimanual, with the surgeon holding forceps in one hand and an aspirator in the other. The surgeon often uses the same instrument during the procedure, eliminating the need for a surgeon to switch instruments or lose field of view. However, the instruments used in microsurgery vary in size, shape, and functionality, and require specialized knowledge and training to perform the surgery. These tools are highly sensitive and can cause injury to a patient’s eye. During surgery, these instruments are used in conjunction with a binocular microscope and forceps. These instruments are usually miniaturized versions of standard surgical instruments. To prevent complications, surgeons are required to use them carefully and cautiously.

According to Coherent Market Insights, high prevalence of cancer, ophthalmic disease, and chronic diseases has increased the market growth. According to the report from the Cancer Research U.K. in 2012, around 14.1 million cases of cancer were registered, globally. Increasing number of various transplant surgeries and technological advancements of surgical process has boosted growth of the microsurgery market. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2005 around 93,000 transplant surgeries were performed globally. Growth in geriatric population significantly rises the cases of chronic diseases, which in turn aids growth of the global microsurgery market.

Microsurgery is performed through the use of tools that are smaller and lighter than normal. The surgeon performs the procedure with a binocular microscope and several small handpieces, which are miniaturized versions of the standard surgical instruments. When an instrument is too small to operate on a patient, it is difficult to control the surgical technique and risks. A bipolar instrument has the advantage of minimizing the risk of infection and avoiding the risks associated with microsurgical procedures. The use of an operating microscope is critical in microsurgery. It allows surgeons to see structures that are barely visible to the naked eye. For example, it helps them to operate on nerves and blood vessels. The microsurgeon must be skilled enough to use the operating microscope. The microscopes are available in different sizes and can be floor or ceiling mounted. They are equipped with a high-intensity light source and a set of lenses. In December 2020, Sysmex Corporation introduced the Hinotori Surgical Robot System, a surgical robot unit, a reusable active endotherapy device, and the HF Series Instument, in Japan.
