MECHATRONIC SYSTEM FOR TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION TRAINING

Ángel Asensio, Alejandro Ibarz, Jose Ignacio Artigas, Álvaro Marco, Javier Casas, Roberto Casas

Abstract

Training the residents who start with endoscopic operations remains a challenge. This paper describes an electromechanical system developed for learning the transurethral resection (TUR) technique. This system can be easily set and cleared up in a classroom, and consists of a supervisor’s workbench with a wireless sensing device, connected to several trainees’ workbenches with motorised devices. These devices have a resectoscope mounted on an electromechanical structure that is able to reproduce all the movements of an actual endoscopic operation of the prostate.
