The eoSim laparoscopic augmented reality (AR) simulator has instrument tracking capabilities that may be suitable for implementation in laparoscopic training. The objective is to assess face, content,...
The introduction of laparoscopic technology has greatly promoted the development of surgery, and the trend of minimally invasive surgery is becoming more and more obvious. However, there is no consens...
Laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA) is the treatment of choice for aldosteronomas and other adrenal tumors. Despite evidence that surgical cure of aldosteronomas is superior to medical treatment, reluctan...
A Comparison of the Effectiveness Between Three Different Endoscopic Surgical Skill Training Programs for Medical Students Using the Infant Laparoscopic Fundoplication Simulator: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
Training programs for developing laparoscopic suturing skills range from dry-box training to virtual simulator training. There are advantages and disadvantages to each training method; however, which ...
The determination of surgeons' psychomotor skills in minimally invasive surgery techniques is one of the major concerns of the programs of surgical training in several hospitals. Therefore, it is impo...
The aim of this study is to find out whether basic laparoscopic skills training (FLS tasks) on a standard pelvic trainer using conventional 2D visualization is at least equally effective i...
Training is of great importance in laparoscopy. There are different commercially available trainers which are quite expensive and are used by trainees only inside the hospital. The aim of...
The primary goal of this study is to answer whether validated laparoscopic simulators truly affect real time performance in the operating room among Gynecology residents.
Virtual reality surgical simulators (VRSS) are gaining popularity for general surgery training, both for conventional laparoscopic and robotically-assisted surgery. Although numerous studi...
The purpose of this study is to test the influences of gaze training (GT) on the acquisition of laparoscopic surgical skills. For this purpose, the investigator will compare variants of GT...
Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.
A nursing specialty created to answer the need for developing a global perspective in the practice of nursing in a world of interdependent nations and people. The focus of this nursing discipline is on the integration of international and transcultural content into the training. Courses include study in the area of cultural differences, nursing in other countries, and international health issues and organizations, as an example.
A group Caribbean islands including Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, and Saba.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
