The advanced development of science and technology also contributes to the development and improvement of keyhole microsurgeries. For example, in recent years, the hybrid surgical platforms [sup][32] and simulated operation through three-dimensional printed solid brain model [sup][33] became available, and provide strong support for the development of keyhole microsurgeries.
The first tests have shown that, when this particular robotic system is used, the time taken to carry out such microsurgeries is reduced.
