U.S., Dec. 7 -- ClinicalTrials.gov registry received information related to the study (NCT03758586) titled 'Spatial Skill Training for Robot-assisted Surgery' on Nov. 24.
Brief Summary: Surgical residents from a single tertiary medical center were divided into 2 groups. All residents performed 2 tasks on a Da Vinci robotic simulator system after which they were either given a real training session in spatial skills (study group) or shown a short presentation regarding robotic surgery. After training/watching the presentation, they repeated the for mentioned tasks on the robotic simulator. Improvement in surgeon performance, especially regarding tissue damage was documented.
Study Type: Interventional
Condition: Spatial Learning
