Scientists have developed a novel recorder similar in concept to a flight recorder on an airplane that can be used to objectively measure surgeons' proficiency in robotic-assisted prostate cancer surgery.

The recorder, called the dVLogger developed by the US-based Intuitive Surgical, similar to the "black box" in flight would evaluate a surgeon's proficiency in performing the surgery to ensure patient safety.

When attached to a robotic surgery system during radical prostatectomy procedures -- the most common treatment for prostate cancer -- the recorder would capture data th...

Scientists have developed a fully functioning artificial human heart muscle large enough to patch over damage typically seen in patients, who have suffered a heart attack. The advance takes a major step toward the end goal of repairing dead heart muscle in human patients, researchers have said.

“Right now, virtually all existing therapies are aimed at reducing the symptoms from the damage that has already been done to the heart, but no approaches have been able to replace the muscle that is lost, because once it is dead, it does not grow back on its own,” said Ilya Shadr...

Scientists have developed an on-the-spot, temperature-sensitive gel that could seal eye injuries on the battlefield.

The reversible, temporary seal developed by researchers at University of Southern California (USC) in the US changes from a fluid to a super-strong semi-solid when applied to the eye.

When the patient is ready for surgery to permanently close the injury, doctors can remove the seal by adding cool water.

The material the group worked with for retinal implants is a hydrogel called PNIPAM, poly(N-isopropylacrylamide), which has a unique attribute that mak...

Researchers from the Newcastle University in the UK have warned that regular use of commonly prescribed painkillers may double the risk of developing obesity and also cause sleep deprivation. Over the past 10 years, there has been a large increase in the prescription of medications such as opioids and some antidepressants for chronic pain management.

Scientists assessed the cardio-metabolic health — the inter-relationship between metabolic and cardiovascular disease — in more than 133,000 participants from the UK Biobank. Body Mass Index (BMI), waist circumference and bl...

The link between air pollution and respiratory diseases is well-established, but the United Nations Children's Fund, in a report on Tuesday, said there is a growing body of scientific research which shows that air pollution can permanently damage a child's brain.

The findings come at a time when India, particularly in the north, is facing a serious crisis due to rising levels of pollution. Last month, Delhi schools had to be shut temporarily to reduce children's exposure to pollutants that had enveloped the capital.

The Unicef report also said that South Asia had the largest...
