BACKGROUND Previously, we presented a new, laboratory-based, vascular anastomosis model as a tool to objectively quantify surgical skill. The purpose of the present study was to determine the relation between the outcomes of vascular anastomosis in the laboratory and technical competency, when performing similar vascular anastomoses, in the operating room. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-nine resident surgeons-in-training participated in the present study. All residents had at least one previous… CONTINUE READING
