3D-printed laparoscopic and robotic surgical simulation and navigation system using bio-elastic wet hemorrhagic organ replica

Maki Sugimoto, MD, PhD. Kobe UniversityThe surgical simulation and training in the actual operating room are generally limited to a relatively small number of procedure types, though surgeons can easily apply the lessons from one surgery to many others. To overcome this limitation, we developed a 3D-printed laparoscopic surgical simulation and navigation system using anatomically… Continue Reading »
