OBJECTIVES To evaluate virtual reality as a laparoscopic training device in helping surgeons to automate to the "fulcrum effect" by comparing it to time-matched training programs using randomly alternating images (ie, y-axis inverted and normal laparoscopic) and normal laparoscopic viewing conditions. METHODS Twenty-four participants (16 females and 8 males), were randomly assigned to minimally invasive surgery virtual reality (MIST VR), randomly alternating (between y-axis inverted and… CONTINUE READING
