This program is part of a series of multimedia surgical teaching tools edited by Dr. James C. Rosser, Jr., of Yale University School of Medicine. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy provides interactive, hands-on training in Cholecystectomy from a laparoscopic perspective. Each CD-ROM in the series features engaging interactive design, incorporating 3-D images and animation, video and audio, creating a virtual operating room for the user. Detailed video/still images of anatomical structures familiarize the user with the stepped procedures of each stage of operation. Room Set-up is re-enacted demonstrating correct orientation of surgical/visualization equipment and surgical personnel. Procedure section walks the user through all phases of the operation. Users can exit one phase, and jump to another out of sequence, allowing for independent review. Indications/Contraindications are discussed, as well as Complications.
