Abstract

The VITO (pn 20150100457, 2015) is a novel training kit which has been designed to be portable, light, mobile, and non-expensive, adjusted to the clinical needs of both beginners and advanced surgeons allowing a continuous and systematic self-centered and/or collaborative training in Surgical Endoscopy. The VITO assisted endoscopy training kit impact on the learning curve- in terms of the so called “machine learning curve” which refers to the assessment of the learning time limits computation- of specific upper GI endoscopy sessions by the part of a trainee in Endoscopy but specialist surgeon (considered as beginner) on a self-centered learning mode, is evaluated.
