It is a challenging task to realistically reproduce the complex deformation of soft bio-tissues in a surgical operation, especially when large deformations and movements exist. A hybrid model which we call the beads-on-string model is presented to handle the deformation and collision of the rectum in a virtual surgery simulation system. Specially tailored for this purpose, our model takes multiple layers to capture the dynamics of the rectum in an efficient manner. Inspired by the shape similarity between a rectum with regular bulges and a string of beads, we use a Cosserat rod model, coinciding with the centreline of the rectum, to calculate its deformation subject to external forces. We introduce rigid spheres, analogy to beads, moving along with the rod to approximate the shape of the rectum in handling collision. In addition, the beads (rigid spheres) provide a natural interlayer to map the deformation of the centreline to the associated mesh which presents detailed geometry of the rectum. Our approach is carefully crafted to achieve high computational efficiency and its multi-layer structure is designed to reproduce the physics of the deformation of the rectum.
