Comparative Evaluation of Simulator Based and Traditional In-surgery Laparoscopic Camera Training's Efficiency in Novices

2014-07-23 21:09:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This prospective randomized study aims for determination whether focused simulator based laparoscopic camera training in novices can improve camera performance in an actual clinical situations in the same manner as traditional training in the OR does, especially considering efficient use of training time.

Description

Medical students in their final years without any significant experience in handling an angled laparoscopic camera participate in the study and perform a camera guidance test in surgery. The participants are then randomized in two groups to receive either a simulator based or traditional in theatre training during three weeks. The camera test will be repeated, while both tests are going to be recorded. Videos of 14 camera tests carried out by laparoscopic experts are taped as well.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.

Training of the mentally or physically disabled in work skills so they may be returned to regular employment utilizing these skills.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

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.
