Maestro AR Prostatectomy for da Vinci Si®
Maestro AR Prostatectomy for da Vinci Si® is an interactive educational tool exclusively available on the dV-Trainer® and FlexVR™, developed in collaboration with Dr. Henk van der Poel from Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital/Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam.
This Prostatectomy module presents the user with an immersive 3D learning environment, combining footage from an actual case performed by Dr. van der Poel with Mimic’s proven MSim™ simulation platform. Using the dV-Trainer, trainees manipulate virtual 3D robotic instruments to interact with anatomical regions within the augmented 3D surgical video footage.
Maestro AR Prostatectomy for da Vinci® Si guides trainees through a complete Prostatectomy procedure. The module is divided into the following steps:
1. Patient Positioning and Setup
2. Lateral Peritoneal Incision and Preparation for Lymph Node Dissection
3. Bladder Detachment
4. Endopelvic Fascia Dissection
5. Bladder Neck Incision
6. Dissection of Vasa and Seminal Vesicles
7. Dissection of Neurovascular Bundles and Sections of Prostatic Pedicles
8. Ligation of Dorsal Venous Complex
9. Apical Dissection
10. Lymph Node Dissection
11. Bladder Neck and Posterior Reconstruction
12. Urehrovesical Anastomosis
Audio narration from Dr. van der Poel provides guidance through all steps of the procedure. At periodic intervals, trainees must answer multiple choice questions and identify anatomical structures and surgical landmarks in order to proceed through the module.
Designed to develop psychomotor robotic skills, this Prostatectomy module includes embedded Suturing, Energy, Knot Tying and Anastomosis exercises designed to match and improve techniques used in this procedure.
As with all other Mimic simulation exercises, Maestro AR uses Mimic’s pioneering and industry standard MScore™ performance evaluation system.
