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.
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.

Virtual reality surgical simulators (VRSS) are gaining popularity for general surgery training, both for conventional laparoscopic and robotically-assisted surgery. Although numerous studi...
Often the less experienced as medical students are charged with the role as camera navigator and assistant during laparoscopic surgery. Camera navigation is generally considered an easy sk...
Comparison of laparoscopic training simulator v use of eye patch (to simulate loss of dept perception) to investigate acquisition of laparoscopic skills.
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...
This is prospective randomized controlled study to compare the proficiency of novices in acquiring laparoscopic suturing skills following either training in a virtual reality simulator or ...
Minimal invasive surgery training requires a lot of practice and for this purpose innovative tools are needed to develop methods for practice and training skills outside the operating room. Commercial...
Ventral incisional hernia is one of the most common procedures in laparoscopic surgery, however, it requires proper training before doing it in the operating room. We propose a low-cost mechanical sim...
To compare the proficiency of novices in acquiring laparoscopic suturing skills following training in a virtual reality simulator or box trainer compared to no training.
Training of basic laparoscopic psychomotor skills improves the acquisition of more advanced laparoscopic tasks, such as laparoscopic intra-corporeal knot tying (LICK). This randomized controlled trial...
Advanced Training of Gynecologic Surgeons and Incidence of Intra-Operative Complications Following Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy: a Retrospective Study of More Than Two Thousand Cases at a Single Institution.
To investigate whether surgeon factors including level of training undertaken in laparoscopic surgery, time in specialist practice and case volume were associated with surgical morbidity at total lapa...
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.
