Abstract:   (37 Views)
Introduction: Neurovascular lesions may cause death or disability. Some of them are operable, but surgical approaches to these lesions are complicated and proper access is crucial. A few numbers of these surgeries occur in every resident education period and their experience for operating these lesions may be quite inadequate. Using new technologies like 3D-restructure of vascular lesion images may lead to better education and improving concepts of residents for these operations.
Method and materials: Four senior neurosurgery residents enrolled in this study. They have been taught to use a 3D image rebuilding program (3D-Slicer). They should rebuild a 3D image of every patient lesion and practice different surgical views and review anatomical structures around the lesion before surgery.
 
Results: All residents mentioned that their concept of surgical approaches improved and they could learn more from each operation. Two of them commented better self-trust during surgeries can lead to more effective education. Also, their ability of surgical planning was enhanced. Attending physicians of these residents believe that this practice improved the residents' abilities and educational quality.
 
Discussion: New technologies can develop residency educational programs. It seems that working on 3D images of lesions before surgery can promote residents' educational attributes.
