It involves a time consuming and error prone process of alternating coagulation and cutting until the line of transaction is completed to finally divide the liver. We proposed a new robotic mechanism to automate the ablation and division process. The robotic device comprises a 2-link manipulator, an x-y translator, a flexi-arm as well as a liver ablation and division device. The process of precise linear motion ablation and cutting has been integrated with the guidance of a robotic mechanism to uniformly coagulate and slit areas of the parenchymal. A prototype of the robotic device has been evaluated on its ability to uniformly target a large region. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.||Source Title:||Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics)||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/73083||ISBN:||3540799818||ISSN:||03029743||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-540-79982-5_35|
