BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) requires the mastery of manual skills and a specific training is required. Apart from residencies and fellowships in MIS, other learning opportunities utilize massive training, mainly with use of simulators in short courses. A long-term postgraduate course represents an opportunity to learn through training using distributed practice. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to assess the use of distributed practice for acquisition of basic minimally invasive skills in surgeons who participated in a long-term MIS postgraduate course...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent anterior shoulder instability after coracoid process transfers may be caused by trauma, sports injury, or technical failure of the index procedure. Surgical techniques vary with regard to graft orientation and positioning and number of screws utilized for fixation. PURPOSE: To identify surgical and patient-related factors associated with failure, defined as the need for revision surgery. We hypothesized that failures will occur more commonly with single-screw fixation and graft malposition...

BACKGROUND: Increased operative duration has been shown to have demonstrable effects on the outcomes and complications in multiple areas of orthopedic surgery. We sought to determine if patient- and surgeon-specific factors correlated to operative duration in shoulder arthroplasty. Our hypothesis was that increased surgeon and trainee volume would decrease operative times and that more complex pathology would increase operative duration. METHODS: A retrospective review of primary and revision total and reverse shoulder arthroplasties performed at a single institution from 2012 through 2015 was performed evaluating the correlation between specific patient and surgeon factors and operative duration...

There is the need for well-trained advanced GI surgeons. The super specialization seen in academic and large community centers may not be applicable for surgeons practicing in other settings. The pendulum that has been swinging toward narrow specialization is swinging the other way, as many trained subspecialists are having a harder time finding positions after fellowship, and if they do find a position, the majority of their practice can actually be advanced GI surgery and not exclusively their area of focused expertise...
