Teaching the art of LeFort colpocleisis: a moderate-fidelity, low-cost simulation model.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The objective was to demonstrate the build and use of a low-cost, moderate-fidelity simulation model for LeFort colpocleisis. We a present a video demonstrating the creation of a LeFort colpocleisis model, the mounting of this model to a pre-existing vaginal hysterectomy simulator (SimVaHT), and the use of the model to teach the steps of the LeFort colpocleisis procedure. This LeFort colpocleisis model is easy to make, from readily available materials, and is inexpensive. It can help trainees to enhance their intraoperative learning.
