VirtaMed UroSimâ„¢

 

Virtual reality surgical simulator for urology

The VirtaMed UroSim™ provides a realistic training environment for urologic procedures, including Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP), Transurethral Resection of the Bladder (TURB) and laser treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with Thulium and HoLEP. Surgeons are able to learn basic skills, practice advanced procedures at a self-guided pace and manage complications, such as bleeding, without risk to real patients.  The VirtaMed UroSim™ is equipped with original instruments so a learner can gain proficiency handling a resectoscope, endoscope or laser fiber before performing a live procedure.

Practice urologic procedures without risk to real patients

“The TURP module offers urologic surgeons a very realistic training with a wide range of prostate anatomies, pathologies and operative complications. The basic skills training with outside views guides the trainee and shows the important landmarks used for orientation. Color schemes mark the sections where to resect - and where to stop. Thus, urologists can practice to perfection without any risk for the patient and then transfer this experience to the OR.”

Head of urology department,
Triemli Hospital Zurich

 

Training modules with a range of patient cases

The VirtaMed UroSim™ training modules include training for basic to advanced skills, from visualization of anatomy and instrument handling to controlling bleeding. The SimProctor™ self-directed learning resources include best practices, videos to help develop awareness of spatial relationships and ghost tools to demonstrate correct behaviors. The TURP full procedures module includes 8 virtual patients with large to small prostates and varying challenges. With the Laser BPH module, trainees can practice laser techniques such as vaporization, vaporesection and enucleation. The TURB module contains 4 virtual patients with multiple papillary and bladder tumors for removal.

Realistic training platform with original instruments

The VirtaMed UroSim™ is available on the Simbox platform, which provides realistic visual and tactile feedback. It can be purchased as a stand-alone model for mobile training or mounted on a display cart with a height-adjustable monitor. Each platform uses original resectoscopes and instruments with in- and outlet valves for fluid handling and different camera optics. Even the foot pedals for electrosurgical cutting, morcellation or coagulation function exactly as they would in the operating room.
