    Automated Retinal Vein Cannulation on Silicone Phantoms Using Optical-Coherence-Tomography-Guided Robotic Manipulations

    Retinal vein occlusion is one of the most common causes of vision loss, occurring when a blood clot or other obstruction occludes a retinal vein. A potential remedy for retinal vein occlusion is retinal vein cannulation, a surgical procedure that involves infusing the occluded vein with a fibrinolytic drug to restore blood flow through the vascular lumen. This work presents an image-guided robotic system capable of performing automated cannulation on silicone retinal vein phantoms. The system is integrated with an optical coherence tomography probe and camera to provide visual feedback to guide the robotic system. Through automation, the developed system ...
