Abstract

FERNANDES, Carla Ferreira Kikuchi et al. Assessment of laparoscopic skills of Gynecology and Obstetrics residents after a training program. Einstein (São Paulo) [online]. 2016, vol.14, n.4, pp.468-472. ISSN 2317-6385.  https://doi.org/10.1590/s1679-45082016ao3752.

Objective

To evaluate laparoscopic skills of third-year Gynecology and Obstetrics residents after training at a training and surgical experimentation center.

Methods

Use of a prospective questionnaire analyzing demographic data, medical residency, skills, competences, and training in a box trainer and in pigs.

Results

After the training, there was significant improvement in laparoscopic skills according to the residents (before 1.3/after 2.7; p=0.000) and preceptors (before 2.1/after 4.8; p=0.000). There was also significant improvement in the feeling of competence in surgeries with level 1 and 2 of difficulty. All residents approved the training.

Conclusion

The training was distributed into 12 hours in the box trainer and 20 hours in animals, and led to better laparoscopic skills and a feeling of more surgical competence in laparoscopic surgery levels 1 and 2.
