Labyrinth of blood vessels in which robot snakes shall be deployed

Robot Snakes being Tested as Potential Surgery Replacement for Brain and Heart Problems

A recent research undertook the testing of miniature snake-like robotic contraptions for purposes of removing clots, lesions and aneurysms in the labyrinth of vessels within the brain. The testing was conducted inside a model of the brain vasculature built specifically for the experiment. Scientists say that they have nearly perfected the physical features of the robot-snakes, making them a safe alternative to surgery.

Take the Full Dose: The robot-snakes are equipped with a tiny laser that can destroy blockages and clots in blood vessels.
