This paper reports a case of closed reduction internal fixation of pelvic fracture and minimally invasive hemostasis procedure and hematoma catheterization and drainage for the active pelvic bleeding site and giant hematoma, guided by a robot-assisted teleultrasound. In this case, the robot-assisted teleultrasound-guided minimally invasive interventional hemostasis and catheterization utilized a partial master-slave approach. It was preliminarily confirmed that robot-assisted teleultrasound-guided minimally invasive hemostasis and puncture catheterization for hematoma were accurate and effective. The robot-assisted teleultrasound overcomes the reliance on physician experience in ultrasound-guided interventional diagnostics and treatment, and promoting the use of minimally invasive "visualized" technology across any distance.
