Background

Modern medicine is looking for new, useful learning models that would make it faster and easier for less-experienced surgeons to acquire knowledge and skills, with the aim of raising surgical competencies while reducing surgical complications. The current positive experience of educational video modules confirms that this kind of education needs to be further favoured and refined.



Method

The authors of this paper used two modified 4K/HD cameras to develop a 3D video model. The capture model implies the dynamic position of the cameras in the operator’s eye position. It is always recorded on a close-up plane at the highest possible resolution. After the operation, the recorded material is processed to emphasise the most important anatomical and technical moments. Creation of a customised video is possible, using 3D visualisation technology (adequate TV and 3D glasses), allowing unlimited times to replay.



Results

This paper presents 3D video educational material for thyroid surgery. It is the most technically demanding video capture in the area of the head and neck concerning the narrow and deep field of operation, characterised by a large number of important anatomical variable structures.



Discussion and conclusion

Surgical skill consists of current scientific knowledge transmitted to everyday practical manual work. Since surgical education is time-bound, financially and legally limited, the acquisition of skills that guarantee the minimum degree of surgical complications is a difficult educational process. 3D visualisation techniques of real surgical procedures can facilitate the transfer of knowledge and, concerning reproducibility, significantly accelerate the educational process.
