Digital Video Technology and Surgical Training

Pietro Gambadauro and Adam Magos Minimally Invasive Therapy Unit and Endoscopy Training Centre, University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Royal Free Hospital, Pond Street, NW3 2QG London, England, UK European Clinics in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, 2007, 3:31-34 Abstract For several reasons, surgical training is suffering important reductions in terms of time and opportunities. New approaches to surgical training are required, and new training strategies should be proposed to maintain surgical standards. Affordable technologies allowing digital capture and recording of surgical procedures are now widely available, and we believe that the use of such technologies could play a role in the

Where is the aorta? Is it worth palpating the aorta prior to laparoscopy?

Dimitrios Polyzos, Nikolaos Papadopoulos, Lynne Chapman, Panos Papalambrous, Vasiliki Varela, Pietro Gambadauro, Adam Magos Minimally Invasive Therapy Unit & Endoscopy Training Centre, University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Royal Free Hospital, Pond Street, Hampstead, London, NW3 2QG, England. Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand. 2007;86(2):235-9 Background. Injury to major retroperitoneal vessels is the most catastrophic complication of laparoscopy. Knowledge of the site of the aortic bifurcation prior to inserting the umbilical port would be expected to reduce the risk of this type of injury. The aim of the study is to determine the feasibility of identifying the aortic bifurcation by palpation prior to
