  1. 1. Surgical Education Assessment of simulators for training and selection of trainees

    Author : Kristine Hagelsteen; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Laparoscopy; Simulation; 3D; Haptic feedback; Personnel Selection; Surgical training; interview methods; Professionalism; Professional competence; Remediation; Residency; Human factors; warning signs;

    Abstract : BackgroundApproximately 15 % of surgical patients in hospital are affected of an adverse event, which is a medical error caused by the health care system. Laparoscopy is the preferred surgical technique in common procedures. READ MORE

  2. 2. Haptic and visual simulation of material cutting process : a study focused on bone surgery and the use of simulators for education and training

    Author : Magnus G. Eriksson; Jan Wikander; Ingela Nyström; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; surgical simulation; virtual reality; haptic feedback; surgical training; medical simulators; metrics; 3D visualization; Medical technology; Medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : A prototype of a haptic and virtual reality simulator has been developed for simulation of the bone milling and material removal process occurring in several operations, e.g. temporal bone surgery or dental milling. The milling phase of an operation is difficult, safety critical and very time consuming. READ MORE

  3. 3. Validity and usability of a virtual reality intraocular surgical simulator

    Author : Madeleine Selvander; Oftalmologi (Malmö); []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; simulator; cataract surgery; learning; training; Eyesi;

    Abstract : Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures in Sweden and around 90 000 operations are made each year. An aging population with increased demands on quality of life and good visual acuity, has led to an increased rate of surgery and more surgeons needs to be trained. READ MORE

  4. 4. Haptic Milling Simulation in Six Degrees-of-Freedom : With Application to Surgery in Stiff Tissue

    Author : Magnus G. Eriksson; Jan Wikander; Dwight Meglan; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Surgical simulation; Virtual reality; Haptic feedback; Surgical training; Medical simulators; 3D visualization; Six degrees-of-freedom; Bone milling;

    Abstract : The research presented in this thesis describes a substantial part of the design of a prototypical surgical training simulator. The results are intended to be applied in future simulators used to educate and train surgeons for bone milling operations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Eccentric training in the treatment of tendinopathy

    Author : Per Jonsson; Håkan Alfredson; Jan Ekstrand; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Eccentric training; Achilles tendon; patellar tendon; supraspinatus tendon; impingement; tendinopathy; tendinosis;

    Abstract : Chronic painful tendinopathies are common, not only in sports and recreationally active people, but also among people with a sedentary lifestyle. Both the lower and upper limbs are affected. There is lack of knowledge about the etiology and pathogenesis to tendinopathy, and many different treatments options have been presented. READ MORE
