It's really interesting to see how much less invasive many procedures are today. When I got arthroscopic surgery on my knee over 20yrs ago, many were amazed by the fact my surgery scars were only small three dots. Before that, the scars were a large Y shape or Z shape.
It would be great to see an update here when this continues with trials on live specimens.
This is great stuff - it is so wonderful to see the progress being made on non-invasive techniques. The benefits are wonderful - less blood lost, less time for recovery, more accurate surgical techniques. I hope this wonderful work continues to move forward. The ability to clear blocked blood vessels in this way would be such a blessing!
