The video demonstrates three-dimensional printing of three molds, using dental resin, simultaneously over 9 hours. The molds are printed upside down, starting at the distal knob. Scaffolding is printed simultaneously to allow for stability and is removed during postprocessing. The printing process begins with the build platform in the starting (lowered) position; this platform rises as the printing project progresses. Video created by Joel Pino, Amy Alexander, Eric Erie.

The participant is positioned and provided laparoscopic scissors and the same choices of needle drivers or grasper offered in Exercise L-3 (see Video 4, http://links.lww.com/xxx). The exercise goal was to pass a 15-cm 2-0 polygalactin 910 suture (Vicryl), swedged on to a 26-mm ½ curved tapered needle through the marks on the Penrose and approximate the defect with a knot comprising three intracorporeally formed throws, the first of which was a double throw —a surgeon’s knot. The maximal allowed time and errors recorded were identical to those for Exercise L-3. Video created by AAGL. Used with permission.

After selecting a side of the trainer box, each participant was provided laparoscopic scissors and then chose a standardized, non–self-righting Fundamentals in Laparoscopic Surgery laparoscopic needle driver, and another grasping instrument—either another identical needle driver or one of the Maryland forceps. The exercise goal was to pass a 90-cm 2-0 silk suture with a swedged-on 26mm, ½ curved, and tapered needle through the paired target marks on the Penrose. Then, participants approximated the linear defect with a knot comprising three, single, extracorporeally formed throws, each sequentially transferred into the trainer and tightened with a choice of two knot manipulators. To end the exercise, the participant was required to cut both ends of the suture with the laparoscopic scissors. Video created by AAGL. Used with permission.

This video is a step-by-step operative technique for educational purposes. The current pregnancy was complicated by severe preeclampsia, the medical team decided to perform a vaginal cesarean delivery for maternal salvage. The operative technique consists of 4 steps. Step 1 is the sagittal and vertical incision of the cervix then the bladder with the anterior vaginal wall pushed upwards. Step 2 is the exposing the lower uterine segment and making a vertical segment incision up to the highest part of the lower uterine segment. Step 3 is the extraction of the fetus and the step 4 is the reconstruction of the lower uterine segment by separate sutures.

Declining vaginal hysterectomy numbers in Obstetrics and Gynecology training programs underscores the need to improve the teaching of vaginal surgical skills. Barriers to performing vaginal hysterectomy include technical difficulty, low caseload, lack of requisite skills, and lack of experience with need for more training. To enhance surgical education, we developed a proficiency-based vaginal hysterectomy suturing technical skills curriculum. The objective of this video is to illustrate the correct performance, proper surgical technique, and time and error evaluation for four important vaginal hysterectomy suturing tasks (Heaney pedicle stitch, simple pedicle stitch, double ligature, and continuous running stitch).

Declining vaginal hysterectomy numbers in Obstetrics and Gynecology training programs highlights the need for innovative methods to teach vaginal surgical skills. Unfortunately, simple inexpensive vaginal hysterectomy models are difficult to construct due to complex pelvic anatomy and the unique vaginal surgical field. The objective of this video is to demonstrate construction of a low-cost, low-fidelity vaginal hysterectomy suturing skills bench model to simulate the Heaney pedicle stitch, simple pedicle stitch, double ligature, and continuous running stitch.

Anterior colpotomy is one of the most difficult procedural steps to master during vaginal hysterectomy, and may be a major obstacle to more widespread use of the vaginal approach. Precise knowledge of surgical anatomy is essential for safe and proficient performance of this important step.

Standard steps for total laparoscopic hysterectomy are followed. The entire operation is accomplished using only reusable instruments and all the uterine vascular pedicles are coagulated using 3-mm bipolar coagulation. Colpotomy is performed using monopolar cautery and the specimen is extracted through the vagina. The cuff is sutured transvaginally. The operation is terminated leaving only a very small umbilical incision. See the related article by Uccella et al (July 2015 issue).

The trocar and optic are inserted into the glove, which is then insufflated. The thumb tip is cut, and a power morcellator is inserted through this finger. The morcellation is accomplished within the glove. The thumb tip is closed, and the glove, containing residuals, is removed through the umbilical incision.
