Study shows simulation training improves endovascular procedure performance.
"" ""

A new study by UC Davis researchers found that surgery residents trained on virtual-reality simulators during a two-day course significantly improved their overall performance, including cutting procedure times in half. The study, which appears in the Journal of Vascular Surgery, is the first to evaluate the efficacy of simulators in the training of vascular surgery residents with little to no hands-on experience in treating peripheral artery disease with catheters and other endovascular tools. The course, now three years old, is taught at UC Davis' Center for Virtual Care. It has included participants from 11 residency programs in California, Arizona, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
