Hysterectomies are the most common benign gynecologic surgical procedures performed in the United States. Currently, there are no tissue models that exist to teach trainees the techniques for colpotomy during laparoscopic hysterectomy. To address this educational gap, we have created a laparoscopic colpotomy model using a porcine stomach attached to a uterine manipulator.

The purpose of the study was to validate the simulation model for a microwave thermal ablation in ex vivo liver tissue. The study aims to show that heat transfer due to the flow of tissue water during...
To assess the effect of monopolar coagulation vs cut mode during colpotomy at total laparoscopic hysterectomy on vaginal cuff dehiscence.
This paper presents in vivo mechanical characterization of the muscularis, submucosa and mucosa of the porcine stomach wall under large deformation loading. This is important for the development of ga...
In prostate cancer, radioguided surgery (RGS) is used for sentinel node biopsy (SNB) and holds potential for 99mTc-PSMA-guided surgery of lymph node metastases. Rigid laparoscopic gamma probes current...
The objective of this study was to understand how J-Plasma® (Bovie Medical Corporation, Clearwater, Florida) surgical energy compares to monopolar, argon beam, and CO2 laser devices in terms of depth...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of simulation based practice on anesthesiology trainee in ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane(TAP) block using an anesthet...
The retrieval of tissues removed by laparoscopic surgery larger than trocars caliber, with preservation of the uterus, required for a long time intraperitoneal electromechanical morcellati...
This study will assess whether the type of simulation model used in cricothyroidotomy training has an effect on the subsequent confidence and competence in the procedure.
The aim of this study is to assess a major complication of total laparoscopic hysterectomy, vaginal dehiscence, with two different colpotomy techniques. With this aim patients to be operat...
The investigators aimed to investigate whether the uterine manipulator which is usually utilized in laparoscopic hysterectomy would also be of benefit in preventing postoperative vaginal l...
A computer simulation technique that is used to model the interaction between two molecules. Typically the docking simulation measures the interactions of a small molecule or ligand with a part of a larger molecule such as a protein.
A computer simulation developed to study the motion of molecules over a period of time.
Species of ENTEROVIRUS causing mild to severe neurological diseases among pigs especially in Eastern Europe. Mild strains are also present in Canada, U.S., and Australia. Specific species include Porcine enterovirus A and Porcine enterovirus B.
Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.
A method of measuring the effects of a biologically active substance using an intermediate in vivo or in vitro tissue or cell model under controlled conditions. It includes virulence studies in animal fetuses in utero, mouse convulsion bioassay of insulin, quantitation of tumor-initiator systems in mouse skin, calculation of potentiating effects of a hormonal factor in an isolated strip of contracting stomach muscle, etc.
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...
