XXIII National Hepatobiliary Surgery and Transplant Meeting

December 1, 2023

On November 29 and 30, the Víctor Villegas Auditorium in Murcia hosted the XXIII National Meeting of HPB Surgery.

For this event, mSurgery allowed to stream two surgeries using Da Vinci from the Virgen de la Arrixaca Hospital in real-time. These days, the audience can visualize both surgeries in the auditorium.

On the first day, Ricardo Robles, coordinator of the High Complexity Hepatic Unit of the Virgen de la Arrixaca Hospital, performed a hepatectomy. On the second day, a DPC to treat pancreatic cancer, performed by Francisco Espín Álvarez, member of the Lacy Surgical Institute and professor at the University of Barcelona.

Through mSurgery, international surgeons present at the congress were able to 'feel' the operating room and communicate with the surgical teams to understand and resolve their concerns as they were there.

XXIII Congreso Nacional de Hospitales y Gestión Sanitaria

March 10, 2023

At the XXIII Congreso Nacional de Hospitales y Gestión Sanitaria, we show how our platform can help improve productivity and results in operating rooms.

We have presented a use case of robotic surgery with da Vinci, live on the first day, and with a recording of the case for on-demand consumption during the rest of the congress.

We were able to show how the combination of the daVinci with our technology can be a differential factor both in training processes for advanced surgical techniques and in the day-to-day life of an operating room.

The Ecosystem We Need to Shape the Future of Healthcare

June 9, 2022

The healthcare sector requires alliances and agreements between traditional stakeholders and new players coming from the technology and entrepreneurship sectors. What do we need to make these alliances possible? All we are aligned? What projects are we developing when we are open to cooperating?

In this panel moderated by Sara Pedraz, Innovation Lead at GSK was presented the OncoGYN, the first remote learning program for health professionals on ovarian and endometrial cancer.

In Spain, they are around 100 thousand women with that kind of cancer, and only eight accredited centers provide surgeries for this illness. So this project aims to try to expand the knowledge of these centers, and provide any healthcare professionals no matter where they are the knowledge from diagnosis, surgery, and post-operative care.

The certified gynecologists will be able to stream in real-time and record the surgeries performed, by using the mSurgery platform that integrates Immersive Reality and 5G connectivity.

The first remote learning program focused on ovarian and endometrial cancer

June 6, 2022

Telefónica and GSK have signed an agreement to develop, with the support of Vectorpipe's platform mSurgery, a remote learning program aimed at health professionals on ovarian and endometrial cancer pathologies.

The aim of this project, a pioneer in Spain, is to aid surgeons to train and update their knowledge in this typeof highly complex surgery, without the need to leave their usual place of work. Also, to expand the number of health centers and medical personnel that can attend to these interventions, since there are currently only seven hospitals with the necessary accreditation to carry them out.

This new training proposal will use immersive reality, and 5G connectivity to record and broadcast live the operations carried out by gynecologists certified by the European Society of Gynecological Oncology (ESGO), and can be followed by all the health personnel who request it.

First endoscopy procedures in Spain using Virtual Reality and 5G technologies for real-time communications

October 26, 2021

The Quirónsalud Hospital in Málaga and Telefónica have carry out the first endoscopies in Spain, using 5G technology and Virtual Reality in real-time, during the Congress of Virtual Reality Endoscopy 2021. The operating room at the hospital was connected to the auditorium of the Telefónica headquarters in Madrid in real-time to perform five surgical procedures.

The attendees could see, immersively, the entire operating room, the video generated by the endoscopy source, and the parameters of the procedure, such as the type of scalpel or cutting power, as well as patient's vital signs. They have also interacted in real-time with the doctor who has performed the interventions in Málaga.

To achieve the total immersion in virtual reality, a 360º camera and an environment camera were installed in the operating room. The interaction during these interventions were performed with low latency and high video quality by using the mSurgery platform.
