Abstract

The rapid adoption of robotic assisted surgery challenges the pace at which adequate robotic skills training can occur due to access limitations to the da Vinci robot. Thirty medical students completed a randomized controlled trial evaluating whether the Raven robot could be used as an alternative training tool for the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) block transfer task on the da Vinci robot. Two groups, one trained on the da Vinci and one trained on the Raven were tested on a criterion FLS block transfer task on the da Vinci. There was no statistically significant difference between the task times, path lengths, or economy of motion scores for the first two proficiency trials for subjects learning on the da Vinci and the criterion score for subjects trained on the Raven. These results provide evidence for the value of using the Raven robot for training prior to using the da Vinci surgical system for similar tasks.
