Abstract: Pulmonary Atresia is a malfunction that is diagnosed in about 1 out of 20.000 fetus. The authors propose a novel surgical intervention where the fetal heart is accessed with an endoscopic intervention through the umbilical cord. The key for this innovative procedure is a novel micro-catheter that is equipped with sensor and actuators that allow active navigation inside the heart and also tissue characterisation. The present paper presents the first prototype.
