Quantification of surgical technique using an inertial measurement unit
Simulation in Healthcare (login required)
Quantifying the algorithmic information content of hand motion patterns during a surgical task enables the comparison of different groups, novice and expert. Previously, we have shown that the information content/complexity of hand motion patterns during the surgical skill/subtask of knot tying reduces with increased expertise. We therefore hypothesized that the information content/complexity of motion patterns would also reduce with expertise during a more complex surgical task of a bench model venous anastomosis.
