Laparoscopic techniques have nowadays become a gold standard in many surgical procedures, but they imply a more difficult learning skills process. Simulators have a fundamental role in the formative stage of new surgeons. This paper presents the construct and face validity of SINERGIA laparoscopic virtual reality simulator in order to decide whether it can(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the complications of laparoscopy in different vascular structures using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI has become a key tool in laparoscopic surgery. During these procedures, pneumoperitoneum creation and placing the patient in the surgical position provoke different changes in the splachnic circulation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten(More)
Different effects on cardiovascular and respiratory systems and liver are associated with pneumoperitoneum. This study aimed to determine the morphological changes in the abdominal anatomy as a result of increased intra-abdominal pressure due to pneumoperitoneum using MRI. Ten healthy female pigs were used in this study. MRI studies of the abdomen in supine(More)
The laparoscopic suturing task is a complex procedure that requires objective assessment of surgical skills. Analysis of laparoscopic suturing task components was performed to improve current objective assessment tools. Twelve subjects participated in this study as three groups of four surgeons (novices, intermediates and experts). A box-trainer and organic(More)
Laparoscopic surgery is commonly used in many surgical procedures but requires a learning process to develop the necessary skills. Virtual reality simulators play an essential role within the training curricula. This paper aims to determine whether training in SINERGIA VR simulator allows novice surgeons to improve their basic psychomotor laparoscopic(More)
Pneumoperitoneum and patient positioning are essential factors during laparoscopic surgical procedures. They cause hemodynamic and anatomical changes in several abdominal organs among which the caudal cava vein (CCV) is involved. Hemodynamic changes in this vein (decreased venous return) have been described in the porcine model, but how the vein morphology(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical environments require special aseptic conditions for direct interaction with the preoperative images. We aim to test the feasibility of using a set of gesture control sensors combined with voice control to interact in a sterile manner with preoperative information and an integrated operating room (OR) during laparoscopic surgery.

Surgical simulators are currently essential within any laparoscopic training program because they provide a low-stakes, reproducible and reliable environment to acquire basic skills. The purpose of this study is to determine the training learning curve based on different metrics corresponding to five tasks included in SINERGIA laparoscopic virtual reality(More)
