Abstract

This paper describes a tele-micro-surgical system and an experiment in suturing an artificial blood vessel with diameter approximately 1 mm. An experiment was performed on September 25th and 26th, 1997 at an `operation room' and `surgery site' separated by a distance of approximately 700 km. In the experiment the vessel was successfully sutured by a surgeon.
