Abstract

Aim: In our study we aimed to evaluate the efficiency and the safety of the first laparoscopic surgical procedures of a surgeon, completed under the observation of surgeons with laparoscopic experience, following experience with training boxes and animals. Material and Method: After the laparoscopic education of the single surgeon (A.A.) in this study, the data of 21 laparoscopic surgical procedures he performed between May 2015 and Sep 2016 were taken retrospectively from the files and computer databases and evaluated. Results: A total of 21 laparoscopic surgeries were performed by the surgeon on 13 women and 8 men. The mean age was 5318 years and the mean body mass index (BMI) was 27.93.67 kg/m2. The average length of operation was 157.7651.14 minutes, the average periods of urethral catheter and drainage catheter removal were 18.17.2 hours and 42.114.7 hours, respectively. The overall complication percentage was 4.76%. Except in one case, it was not necessary to move the patient to open surgery or to perform blood transfusion. Discussion: We concluded that appropriate patient selection and a training that begins with basic theorical education, work dry training box in the laboratory, work with test animals, and finally performance of laparoscopic surgeries under the observation of experienced surgeons, will accelerate the education process, greatly reduce complications, and increase the self-confidence of the surgeon.
