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 ...
There are no standards for optimal utilization of workplaces in laparoscopic training. This study aimed to define whether laparoscopy training should be done alone or in pairs (known as dyad training)...
To date, the feasibility of pre-graduate training in 2D vision has not been studied thoroughly. The purpose of this pilot study is to present the preliminary results of a pre-graduate laparoscopic tra...
Minimally invasive approaches to hysterectomy have been shown to be safe, effective and have recovery advantages over open hysterectomy, yet in Australia 36% of hysterectomies are still conducted by o...
To develop a model and curriculum for simulated training of an effective and well accepted laparoscopic vesicourethral anastomosis (VUA).
Laparoscopic percutaneous inguinal ring suturing (PIRS) is a valuable technique to repair indirect inguinal hernias in children. The aim of the study was to show the preliminary results of training in...
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.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
Training of the mentally or physically disabled in work skills so they may be returned to regular employment utilizing these skills.
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.
