Training and assessment of psychomotor skills for performing laparoscopic surgery using BEST-IRIS virtual reality training simulator


, : Training and assessment of psychomotor skills for performing laparoscopic surgery using BEST-IRIS virtual reality training simulator. Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 98: 228-230

In this article, we present the results of a pilot study that examined the performance of people training on a Virtual Reality based BEST-IRIS Laparoscopic Surgery Training Simulator. The performance of experienced surgeons was examined and compared to the performance of residents. The purpose of this study is to validate the BEST-IRIS training simulator. It appeared to be a useful training and assessment tool.

Eratyrus mucronatus Stål, 1859 is a wild triatomine vector of Trypanosoma cruzi Chagas, 1909. However, little is known regarding the biology and ecoepidemiology of this triatomine in the Brazilian Amazon. The present study describes the biology o...
