Abstract

The placement of permanent and temporary cardiac epicardial pacemaker leads through minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) access remains a challenge. A reliable ergonomic approach for remote lead placement requires improved technology. We present a novel means to enable the remote placement of epicardial leads using automated suturing devices and videoscopy.
