    Robotic leech to mend Heart

    Since medieval times the leech has been used to cure everything from fever to possession by evil spirits. Now doctors have brought it into the 21st century with a robotic version that can repair damaged hearts. The tiny device slides across the surface of the still-beating heart, delivering treatment without the need for open heart surgery. Once inside the body, the Heart-Lander can inject drugs, attach pacemaker leads and may even be able to destroy damaged tissue. Outside the body, the surgeon controls the two-ounce robot using a joystick and monitors its progress via a TV screen. Its size and flexibility give it several advantages over current surgical techniques and believe it could even be used without a general anaesthetic, cutting down the length of time patients spend in hospital.
