The most comprehensive, structured curriculum and hands-on training for laparoscopic appendectomy.
Not only is the Appendectomy Module on the LAP Mentor the most sophisticated training resource for this procedure, there is such a life-like realism to the graphics that the visuals could easily be mistaken for those taken in live surgery. This simulation includes components such as high fidelity tissue response to dissection, realistic bleeding and inflammation.
Appendectomy is the most common operation in emergency situations. Although dating more than 30 years after the first laparoscopic appendectomy, it is still performed by laparotomy in more than 90% of cases in our country. Several causes determine this high index of laparotomic procedures and, among them, it can be mentioned the cost of equipment and used inputs.
