Official Title

Does 3D Laparoscopy Improve Vaginal Cuff Suture Time? A Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing 3D Laparoscopy Versus Standard Laparoscopy

Brief Summary

      The objective aim is to evaluate whether the use of 3D laparoscopy facilitates the vaginal
      cuff closure of the vaginal cuff during a total laparoscopic hysterectomy among novice
      laparoscopists (PGY 2-4, Fellow). This is a randomized single blinded controlled trial
      comparing the difference in 2D vs. 3D in regards to vaginal cuff closure time stratified by
      residents and fellows. Patients will undergo a total laparoscopic hysterectomy and will be
      randomized to either 2D versus 3D.

Detailed Description

      This is a randomized single blinded controlled trial investigating 3D laparoscopy in the
      clinical setting. Based on previous studies indicating 3D laparoscopy has improved skills of
      novice surgeons in the simulation lab, there has been no reports to date investigating the
      role of 3D laparoscopy in the operating room. Our study will evaluate the facility of 3D
      laparoscopy in the novice surgeon, mainly residents and fellow. Patients who present for a
      scheduled total laparoscopic hysterectomy will be randomized to either the standard 2D
      laparoscopy system or 3D laparoscopy system. Stratifying residents versus fellow, we will
      compare the time to close the vaginal cuff comparing both systems.
