Abstract:Even though laparoscopic procedures are considerably advantageous for patients, they prove to be more strenuous for the surgeon, resulting in higher complication rates. Laparoscopy also poses distinct difficulties on the novice learner. Previous studies suggest that psychomotor skills play a role when acquiring laparoscopic skills. In order to assess future surgeons in more cost-effective manner, the possibility of building a test that might predict laparoscopic performance arises. This study aims at finding out whether dexterity task performance can predict laparoscopic simulator performance.
