Recent advaces in intraoeprative navigation system and robotic catheter system for neurosurgical operations has developed rapidly. Intaroperative navigation system and monitering system are very useful for neurosurgical operations. We demostrate our recent neurosurgical microscopic operations using intraoeprative navigation system and monitering system. We also demonstrate our intravascular neurosurgical operations using stent-assisted technique for the intracranial aneurysms and the several catheter systems in the revascularization of patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke. In addition, we demonstarte a new catheter operating systems with force feedback for medical applications. We present practical application of fuzzy PID controller for this developed system during the remote intra vascular operations and compare with the traditional PID control experimentally. The feasibility and effectiveness of the control method are demonstrated.
