Assessing technical performance and determining the learning curve in cleft palate surgery using a high fidelity cleft palate simulator.

Technical skills assessment can provide objective measures of surgical performance. This study assessed technical performance in cleft palate repair using a newly developed assessment tool and high fidelity cleft palate simulator through a longitudinal simulation training exercise.

Teaching Palatoplasty Using a High-Fidelity Cleft Palate Simulator.

Cleft palate repair is a challenging procedure for cleft surgeons to teach. A novel high-fidelity cleft palate simulator has been described for surgeon training. This study evaluates the simulator's effect on surgeon procedural confidence and palatoplasty knowledge among learners.

Infant Robotic Cleft Palate Surgery: A Feasibility Assessment Using a Realistic Cleft Palate Simulator.

A surgical robot offers enhanced precision, visualization, and access and the potential to improve outcomes in cleft palate surgery. The goal of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using the da Vinci robot for cleft palate repair in infants using a cleft palate simulator test bed.

Evaluation and Implementation of a High-Fidelity Cleft Palate Simulator.

Cleft palate repair is a challenging procedure to learn because of the delicate tissue handling required and the small confines of the infant oral cavity. As a result, cleft palate simulators have previously been described to augment cleft palate repair training. Although valuable, they lack the fidelity for this complex procedure.

Patient-Specific Orbital Implants: Development and Implementation of Technology for More Accurate Orbital Reconstruction.

Fracture of the orbital floor is commonly seen in facial trauma. Accurate anatomical reconstruction of the orbital floor contour is challenging. The authors demonstrate a novel method to more precisely reconstruct the orbital floor on a 50-year-old female who sustained an orbital floor fracture following a fall. Results of the reconstruction show excellent reapproximation of the native orbital floor contour and complete resolution of her enopthalmos and facial asymmetry.

Exploring the role of 3-dimensional simulation in surgical training: feedback from a pilot study.

Randomized control study assessing the efficacy of a pedicle screw insertion simulator.
