Establishment of “surgical training and research center” using fresh cadavers in Tokushima Hospital
minimally invasive surgery
Tokushima University Hospital founded “Clinical Anatomy Education and Research Center” on August, １st, ２０１４. This center was established according to “Guidelines for Autopsy in Clinical Medicine Education and Research”.
Fresh cadavers still have the same stiffness or viscosity as biological bodies.
Surgical training using fresh cadavers is the nearest simulation of the surgical procedures such as color of fatty tissue, muscle, artery, vessel or nerves. Although shortening of the surgical learning curve should be obtained outside the operation room, sufficient training using the plastic model or an animal could not be provided.
Surgical training, especially minimally invasive surgery, using fresh cadaver can provide useful way to obtain a skill for surgeon.
