PURPOSE With the expanding role of laparoscopy in urologic practice, efficient and safe training has become paramount. Virtual reality simulation may potentially aid training, but it requires validation before it can be incorporated into training programs. The objective of this study was to assess whether training on a virtual reality (VR) laparoscopy simulator (LAP Mentor) can improve performance of virtual laparoscopic procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS After a basic introduction to the LAP… CONTINUE READING
