- Establishing clear viewing conditions
- Identifying anatomical landmarks and obtaining a clear 3D mental image of the anatomy
- Resecting the prostate while safely handling the loop electrode
- Coagulating bleeding sources with the loop electrode
Hands-On Complication Training
The TURP Mentor simulates the important challenges of the TURP procedure, allowing trainees to learn how to efficiently control and manage bleeding and complications:
- Heavy bleeding
- Capsule perforation
- Verumontanum or sphincter resection
- Fluid overload
Objective Feedback Reports
Feedback reports provide objective performance assessment and optional expert-defined scores (including visualized landmarks, economy of movements, safety and complications handling), while playback capabilities allow further discussion and review.
Realistic Simulation of Instruments
An adapted, original resectoscope is used to provide a complete simulation experience and to facilitate familiarization with instruments.
Management & Assessment – Instructor’s Administrative Benefits
The Administrator Mode facilitates the following:
- Creation and organization of new users
- An optional Guest account
