Background: Neurosurgery and ophthalmology residents need many years to improve microsurgical skills. Laboratory training models are very important for developing surgical skills before clinical application of microsurgery. A simple simulation model is needed for residents to learn how to handle microsurgical instruments and to perform safe dissection of intracranial or intraorbital nerves, vessels, and other structures. Materials and Methods: The simulation material consists of a one-year-old…

The model proposed for teaching and training substantially facilitate further professional training in an efficient way, and at the same time allows a substantial reduction in the number of experiments conducted on animals.

Training in Microvascular Surgery Using a Chicken Wing Artery

A unique training exercise for microarterial anastomosis, using a chicken wing artery, which is useful not only for young surgeons who wish to learn microsurgical techniques but also for more experienced surgeons who need to maintain or improve their skills.

Microsurgical lab testing is a reliable method for assessing ophthalmology residents’ surgical skills

The results of this study indicate that the ESSAT could be a useful tool for improving the assessment of surgical skill during residency, and may be useful to set a threshold of competence that all residents would need to achieve prior to entering the operating room.

Use of cryopreserved rat arteries for microsurgical training

Arterial cadaveric segments are a suitable biologic material for microsurgical training since they can be obtained from other experiments, and this is an effective way to reduce the number of animals bred and sacrificed for teaching purposes.
