Skills Training Now Exceeds 200 Hours of Simulator Training Time
Laparoscopic surgery has increasingly come to replace more traditional 'open' procedures in a variety of medical fields. Recognizing that these procedures require special training, Simbionix has made it a priority to provide extensive practice for physicians. This new addition of the advanced cases to the all-inclusive Appendectomy Module is a continuation of Simbionix's effort to enrich the ever expending library of modules and enlarge the offering of the training hours on the LAP Mentor, currently estimated by more than 200 hours.
The LAP Mentor Appendectomy Module provides the most comprehensive, structured curriculum including the key components of the laparoscopic appendectomy procedure and addressing different levels of learner's skills. It includes:
The new virtual cases include anatomical variations, such as a regular, retrocecal and preileal appendix, as well as different levels of inflammation such as a moderately inflamed, gangrenous and perforated appendix.
The President of Simbionix, Ran Bronstein, added, "The most innovative graphics and physics-based Simbionix technology were implemented in the enhanced module. This resulted in unique true-to life visualization, tools-tissue interaction, superior tissue dissection and exceptionally realistic bleeding and inflammation liquid effects, leading to the entire virtual reality procedure to simulate reality even closer than ever before."
Visit Simbionix booth #1341 at the upcoming ACS Exhibition in Washington, DC, between October 6-10 for a hands on experience of the LAP Mentor, LAP Mentor Express, GI Mentor and the BRONCH Mentor.
