Title:


    Virtual Open Heart Surgery - Training Complex Surgical Procedures in Congenital Heart Disease

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 35


Description:


    We have developed a new training tool for complex heart surgery and present an open heart surgery simulator on congenitally malformed hearts. The purpose of the simulator is (at least) twofold: 1) To illustrate various elements of difficult surgical procedures, and 2) To allow surgeons to rehearse these elements virtually. In time, virtual surgery is expected to become a natural supplement to and even replace parts of current surgical training. In a foreseeable future, new tools will take younger surgeons faster and more safely through their inevitable learning curves. We also expect these tools to help experienced surgeons during their preoperative planning of the most complex cases.
