    Background: Circumstances may arise during laparoscopic procedures in which alignment of the laparoscope and the instruments is off by 180°, creating a mirror image of the operative field. It has been shown that task performance is degraded under these reverse-alignment conditions, and that...

    Background: During the course of certain laparoscopic procedures, a surgeon may encounter circumstances where the camera and working instruments are not aligned along the same axis. When the alignment is off by 180 degrees, the laparoscope is pointed directly at the surgeon and a...

    Background: Complex laparoscopic tasks are nearly impossible to complete when the telescope is pointed toward the operator (i.e., paradoxic image). Attempts at image manipulation have been reported, but altered monitor displays may introduce even more confusion. The availability of high-quality,...

    Background: Better understanding of the brain regions involved in performing laparoscopic surgery is likely to provide important insights for improving laparoscopic training and assessment in the future. To our knowledge, this is the first study using real Fundamentals of Laparoscopy Training...

    Background: Laparoscopic colorectal resection is widely used because of its safety and effectiveness compared with conventional surgery; however, surgical assistants find it difficult to perform this surgery in mirror image. This study aimed to evaluate assistants' learning curves in...

    Background: To improve endoscopic surgical skills, an increasing number of surgical residents practice on box or virtual reality (VR) trainers. Current training is focused mainly on hand-eye coordination. Training methods that focus on applying the right amount of force are not yet available....

    Background: The direction of visual gaze may be an important ergonomic factor that affects operative performance. We designed a study to determine whether a head-mounted display (HMD) worn by the surgeon would improve task performance and/or reduce muscle fatigue during a...

    Background: Laparoscopic surgery has made great advances over the years, but it is still dependent on a single viewpoint. This single-lens system impedes multitasking and may provide suboptimal views of the operative field. We have previously developed a prototype of interactive laparoscopic...
