E-mail Print PDF
The use of robotics in the medical field has been gaining ground over the last 10 years. In particular, in spine surgery, its greatest use at present seems to be the application of screws. Traditionally, they have been placed via an open-handed technique in which a surgeon will rely on his knowledge of anatomy and the appearance of the vertebral bones as they lie on the operating room table to attempt to accurately place screws. This is very common, particularly for fusion surgery. In addition, the use of fluoroscopic or x-ray helps guide the accuracy of screw placement.

Acute gastroenteritis (AGE) is a seasonal disease with peaks in the summer, when it is caused by a family of viruses known as the enteroviruses, and the winter, when it is caused by either rotavirus or Norwalk-like viruses. The hallmarks of gastroenteritis are, you probably guessed it already, vomiting and diarrhea. The vomiting and diarrhea are often accompanied by fever, and about 10 percent of cases of rotavirus-induced AGE are accompanied by an ear infection. In diarrhea caused by viral infections, blood is relatively uncommon, whereas in diarrhea caused by the bacteria Salmonella and Shigella blood is expected. This is why your pediatrician will often ask if you have noticed any...
