A Study of Flexible Ureteroscopy Proficiency After Training on the Uromentor Simulator
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||Rabin Medical Center|
|Start date||December 2008|
|Trial size||20 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00813644, 5166|
The development of virtual reality (VR) simulators is changing surgical endoscopic education. The translation of VR skills into clinical endoscopic proficiency has been shown by M.PEARLE. The improvement in performing endoscopic tasks after VR training was evaluated on a cadaver. Our goal is to evaluate the performance of novice endoscopists at the operating room by a randomized controlled study comparing subjects randomized to train on a the "UroMentor" simulator to those without VR training.
non uromentor training
Male or female participants of any age.
Inclusion Criteria: - novice urologists without endo-urological experience Exclusion Criteria: - none
