Abstract

Background: To assess the learning curve associated with tele-assisted surgery. Methods: We performed a training box-based study, describing speed and accuracy in volunteers performing basic and complex laparoscopic tasks, to assess performance and in the skill acquisition of inexperienced users, using the Telelap Alf X system. Ten surgeons in gynaecology who had never received formal instruction on this new surgical device, completed four modules during a consecutive 3 day training programme. Results: All the participants completed the training programme with a good learning curve. Conclusions: Use of the TELELAP Alf X advanced surgical robotic system is associated with a rapid learning curve among experienced surgeons. Copyright © 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
