The main purpose of this study is to find possible relationships between the smoothness of hand function during laparoscopic ventral hernia (LVH) repair and psychomotor skills in a defined virtual reality (VR) environment. Thirty four surgical residents N = 34 performed two scenarios. First, participants were asked to perform a simulated LVH repair during(More)
BACKGROUND The study aim was to identify residents' coordination between dominant and nondominant hands while grasping for sutures in a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair procedure simulation. We hypothesize residents will rely on their dominant and nondominant hands unequally while grasping for suture. METHODS Surgical residents had 15 min to complete(More)
BACKGROUND Due to the increased use of peripherally inserted central catheter lines, central lines are not performed as frequently. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether a virtual reality (VR)-based assessment of fine motor skills can be used as a valid and objective assessment of central line skills. METHODS Surgical residents (N = 43) from 7(More)
