BACKGROUND Video games have become extensively integrated into popular culture. [...] Key MethodSETTING Academic medical center and surgical training program. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-three residents and attending physicians participating in Top Gun from May 10 to August 24, 2002. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES The primary outcome measures were compared between participants' laparoscopic skills and suturing capability, video game scores, and video game experience. Expand
Comparing video games and laparoscopic simulators in the development of laparoscopic skills in surgical residents.
TLDR
It was shown that over 6 weeks, residents who played video games improved in their laparoscopic skills more than those who practiced on laparoscope simulators, which is a significant difference in the improvement of the tested time among the 3 groups. Expand
The benefits of being a video gamer in laparoscopic surgery.
TLDR
Investigation of whether previous video gaming experience affects the baseline performance on a laparoscopic simulator trainer showed that previous video-gaming experience improved the baselineperformance in laparoscope simulator skills. Expand
Impact of video games on ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia skills
TLDR
Video game practice is associated with increased mental rotation ability and enhanced technical performance in a simulated ultrasound-guided task in novice operators, and this study found that gamers performed better in mental rotation test scores. Expand
Video game experience and basic robotic skills
TLDR
It is demonstrated that video gamers acquire perceptual and psychomotor skills through video game play, similar to those used by robotic surgeons, and this findings can be generalized to domains outside of medicine that utilize robotic and computer-controlled systems. Expand
Surgical Skill and Video Games: A Meta-Analytic Review
As the popularity of video games has grown over the past decade, so has interest in their capacity to serve as tools for education. The technology behind modern laparoscopic surgery draws strongExpand
Impact of video game genre on surgical skills development: a feasibility study.
TLDR
Different VG genres may differentially impact the development of surgical skills by medical students, and more complex games seem to improve performance even if played less. Expand
Does previous video game experience affect laparoscopic skills ? Evaluation of non-medical school students with a novel laparoscopic training box
Background and objectives: Training is important to master skills in laparoscopic surgery. Various laparoscopic skills curricula have been developed to accelerate the learning curve of the traineesExpand
A prospective study of the effect of video games on robotic surgery skills using the high-fidelity virtual reality RobotiX simulator
TLDR
Assessing if prior video gaming experience gives advantage in performing high-fidelity virtual reality (VR)-simulated robotic surgery suggests prior video game experience >6 hrs/week might give advantage in simulated robotic surgery. Expand
Does Video Gaming Affect Orthopaedic Skills Acquisition? A Prospective Cohort-Study
TLDR
There was no correlation between video gaming experience and gaining competency on a VR DHS simulator performance, contrary to previous literature findings. Expand
Prior video game exposure does not enhance robotic surgical performance.
TLDR
In the extremes of video-game experience tested in this study, game playing was inversely correlated with the ability to learn robotic suturing, suggesting that advanced surgical skills such as robotic s Suturing may be learned more quickly by athletes and musicians. Expand

Impact of hand dominance, gender, and experience with computer games on performance in virtual reality laparoscopy
TLDR
Objective evidence of a difference in laparoscopic skills between surgeons differing gender, hand dominance, and computer experience is provided, which may influence the future development of training program for Laparoscopic surgery. Expand
Objective evaluation of a laparoscopic surgical skill program for residents and senior surgeons.
TLDR
Basic skills relevant to laparoscopic performance can be acquired with a high level of competence in a brief course unrelated to prior surgical experience, sex, or age. Expand
Skill acquisition and assessment for laparoscopic surgery.
TLDR
Three standardized laparoscopic drills have been tested in 150 trainees and demonstrate the incremental acquisition of skills that correlate with improved performance in a challenging and complex Laparoscopic surgical skill, intracorporeal suturing. Expand
Computers and virtual reality for surgical education in the 21st century.
TLDR
There has been early progress that should encourage surgeons to incorporate computer simulation into the surgical curriculum, and computer-based training in technical skills has the potential to solve many of the educational, economic, ethical, and patient safety issues related to learning to perform operations. Expand
Learning Curves, Acquisition, and Retention of Skills Trained with the Endoscopic Sinus Surgery Simulator
TLDR
Intensive, proctored training on the ES3 can train inexperienced persons to perform simulated ESS within a reasonable approximation of the performance of experienced sinus surgeons on theES3 and the training that an inexperienced person receives on the simulator is not short term but is retained over a period of at least 2 months.

Acquisition of Eye-hand Coordination Skills for Videoendoscopic Surgery
  • Tsai, Heinrichs
  • Medicine
  • The Journal of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists
  • 1994
TLDR
"inanimate" videoendoscopic paradigms offer relatively inexpensive and useful training exercises for acquiring basic eye-hand coordination skills and manual dexterity (as measured by the Purdue Pegboard Manual Dexterity Test) was positively related to the degree of observed improvement. Expand
Simulation technology for health care professional skills training and assessment.
TLDR
Some benefits of simulation technology include improvements in certain surgical technical skills, in cardiovascular examination skills, and in acquisition and retention of knowledge compared with traditional lectures. Expand
Enhancing the control of force in putting by video game training
TLDR
A positive transfer of video playing to actual putting skill for the learning group and also, to a lesser degree, for the enjoyment group is shown; but only when they used the symbolic method. Expand
Violent video games: The newest media violence hazard.
In 1972, a new form of entertainment became commercially available with the release of the video game Pong. In Pong, two players tried to “hit” an electronic “ball” back and forth. From these humbleExpand
Use of a human patient simulator in the development of resident trauma management skills.
TLDR
Use of HPSs in conjunction with ATLS appears to enhance the development of trauma management skills and self-confidence in surgical interns, and trauma team behavior improved significantly after ATLS/HPS. Expand
