Inguinal Hernia Module

First-ever virtual-reality hands-on simulation for Inguinal Hernia. This RobotiX Mentor module allows users to practice the key steps of the Laparoscopic Transabdominal Preperitoneal (TAPP) Inguinal Hernia repair including anatomy identification, incision and dissection and sac reduction.

Task 1 - Anatomy identification

The task provides the trainee an opportunity to become familiar with the anatomy of the inguinal region and gain experience in identifying the anatomical landmarks essential for the TAPP Inguinal Hernia repair. Interactive guidance and comprehensive performance reports are included.

Task 2 - Incision and Dissection

The task allows for practicing an accurate peritoneal incision, perform a safe dissection and gentle reduction of the hernia sac, and prepare a peritoneal flap for further mesh placement.

A variety of complications and emergency situations such as injuries to the vessels, vas deferens, nerves and bladder as well as comprehensive performance metrics are included.
