Accelerate student learning with a variety of pathologies and cases at all difficulty levels. GynoS™ hysteroscopy offers on-demand, comprehensive, and risk-free endoscopy training where students use original medical instruments to treat virtual fibroids, establish uterine distension, clear viewing conditions, and how to safely handle loop electrode and rollerball for resection, coagulation, and endometrial ablation. For the more experienced learner, there are patients with more serious gynecological pathologies, including multiple polyps, intramural fibroids, uterine adhesions, or a septum. In the risk-free environment provided by simulation, more advanced endoscopic techniques can also be trained. For example, reducing the fluid inflow leads to a reduction of uterine distension, allowing the intramural parts of fibroids naturally to expand into the cavity for easier resection.
Operative and diagnostic hysteroscopy: A novel learning model combining new animal models and virtual reality simulation
Alfred Bassil, Chrystèle Rubod, Yves Borghesi, Yohan Kerbage, Elie Servan Schreiber, Henri Azaïs, Charles GarabedianHysteroscopy is one of the most common gynaecological procedure. Training for diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy can be achieved through numerous previously described models like animal models or virtual reality simulation. We present our novel combined model associating virtual reality and bovine uteruses and bladders.
Integration and Validation of Hysteroscopy Simulation in the Surgical Training Curriculum
Mohamed Elessawy, Moritz Skrzipczyk, Christel Eckmann-Scholz, Nicolai Maass, Liselotte Mettler, Veronika Guenther, Marion van Mackelenbergh, Dirk O. Bauerschlag, Ibrahim AlkatoutThe primary objective of our study was to test the construct validity of the HystSim hysteroscopic simulator to determine whether simulation training can improve the acquisition of hysteroscopic skills regardless of the previous levels of experience of the participants. The secondary objective was to analyze the performance of a selected task, using specially designed scoring charts to help reduce the learning curve for both novices and experienced surgeons.
Evaluation of the HystSim™-virtual reality trainer: an essential additional tool to train hysteroscopic skills outside the operation theater
Felix Neis, Sara Brucker, Melanie Henes, F. Andrei Taran, Sascha Hoffmann, Markus Wallwiener, Birgitt Schönfisch, Nicole Ziegler, Angelika Larbig, Rudy Leon De WildeMinimally invasive surgery is a major pillar of gynecological surgery. However, there are very few training opportunities outside the operation theater (OR) due to the cost and equipment requirements of organ simulators, virtual reality trainers (VRT) are promising tools to fill this gap.
Assessment of a high-fidelity mobile simulator for intrauterine contraception training in ambulatory reproductive health centres
Laura E. Dodge, Michele R. Hacker, Sarah H. Averbach, Sara F. Voit and Maureen E. PaulLittle is known about the utility of simulation-based training in office gynaecology. The objective of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate the self-reported effectiveness and acceptability of the PelvicSim™ (VirtaMed), a highfidelity mobile simulator, to train clinicians in intrauterine device (IUD) insertion.
Evaluation of a New Virtual-Reality Training Simulator for Hysteroscopy
PD Dr. med. Michael Bajka, Dr. Stefan Tuchschmid, Daniel Fink, Prof. Dr. Gabor Szekely, PD Dr. Matthias HardersFace validity has been established for a new hysteroscopic surgery simulator. Potential trainees and trainers assess it to be a realistic and useful tool for the training of hysteroscopy. Further systematic validation studies are needed to clarify how this system can be optimally integrated into the gynecological curriculum.
Establishing Construct Validity of a Virtual-Reality Training Simulator for hysteroscopy via a Multimetric Scoring System
PD Dr. med. Michael Bajka, Dr. Stefan Tuchschmid, Daniel Fink, Prof. Dr. Gabor Szekely, PD Dr. Matthias HardersThe aims of this study are to determine construct validity for the HystSim™ virtual reality (VR) training simulator for hysteroscopy via a new multimetric scoring system (MMSS) and to explore learning curves for both novices and experienced surgeons.
Preliminary Experience with Virtual Reality Simulation vs. Animal Model for Hysteroscopic Myomectomy Training
L.R. Glazerman, S.R. Hart, M. Bajka, D. Fink, R.R. BassalyThe HystSim™ Virtual Reality hysteroscopic trainer was felt to be at least equal to the ‘‘gold standard’’ pig bladder model for training in hysteroscopic myomectomy with the additional advantages of reproducibility and measurement of results. Further studies comparing modalities and relating results to operating room performance are warranted.
ASRMThe American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) is a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the advancement of the science and practice of reproductive medicine. The Society accomplishes its mission through the pursuit of excellence in education and research and through advocacy on behalf of patients, physicians, and affiliated health care providers. The Society is committed to facilitating and sponsoring educational activities for the lay public and continuing medical education activities for professionals who are engaged in the practice of and research in reproductive medicine. The ASRM Embryo Transfer Simulator (ETSim) provides physicians the opportunity to practice simulated transfers with varying degrees of difficulty in a safe, risk-free environment and with unlimited repetitions. In conjunction with the Guide to Learning Embryo Transfer, the ETSim is a tool that significantly augments current physician training using a structured simulation-based method to learn basic embryo transfer techniques and characteristics of an ideal transfer.
