TEACHING MODEL FOR EVALUATION OF THE ABILITY AND COMPETENCE PROGRESS IN ENDOSUTURE IN SURGICAL SKILL LABORATORY

<div><p>ABSTRACT Background : Laparoscopic manual suturing is probably the most difficult skill to be acquired in minimally invasive surgery. However, laparoscopic exercise endo-sutures can be learned with a simulator and are of great practical importance and clinical applicability, absorbing concepts that are immediately transferred to the operating room. Aim : To assess the progression of skills competence in endo-sutures through realistic simulation model of systematized education. Method : Evaluation of the progression of competence of students in three sequential stages of training in realistic simulation, pre-test (V.1), teaching concepts (V.2) and training station for absorption of video concepts in surgery - ergonomics, stereotaxia, ambidexterity, haptic touch, fucral effect, applied in the manufacture of points corresponding to a Nissen fundoplication, in endo-suture for realistic simulation. Results : All students who attended the course absorbed the video concepts in surgery; most participants showed steady and continued improvement and during the stages of training, obtained progression of appropriate skills, defining competence and validation of the teaching model to achieve proficiency. Conclusions : The teaching model was adequate, safe, revealed the profile of the student, the evolutionary powers of the endo-sutures performance and critical analysis of the training to achieve proficiency in bariatric procedures.</p></div>
