Fiber optic based devices are used in many minimally invasive cardiology surgery applications. For example, mitral valve repair is an open heart procedure performed by cardiothoracic surgeons to treat stenosis or regurgitation of the mitral valve. Further information can be found about this procedure and application at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/007411.htm
Working in partnership with a leading edge technology company that has developed a minimally invasive and disposable surgical probe for mitral valve repair, Fiberoptic Components has implemented fiber optics within the probe to detect if the probe arm has captured the damaged valve leaflet, before the preloaded suture begins its repair process.
