Magnetic Retraction of Bowel by Intraluminal Injectable Cyanoacrylate-Based Magnetic Glue

Figure 2

Magnetic retraction by intraluminal injection bowel magnetization. (a) Illustration of an intra-abdominal injection probe with suction openings for capturing bowel wall to facilitate intraluminal injection. (b) Illustration of an intra-abdominal magnet probe with distal magnet interacting with the injected magnetic glue attracted to the inner wall of the lumen by the abdominal magnet probe. (c) Photograph of an ex vivo porcine bowel experimental setup for magnetic bowel retraction force measurement. (d) Illustration of a recorded retraction force-distance curve for calculating peak force and work.
