Background: We evaluated the effectiveness of five training methods-four structured and one unstructured-for teaching intracorporeal knot tying. Methods: Forty-three graduate students without prior laparoscopic experience were randomly assigned to one of five training groups, and their performance in 10 intracorporeal knot tying trials was evaluated, using time to complete a knot as the outcome measure. Results: The average knot tying times for the four structured groups were significantly… CONTINUE READING
