In this paper, we present constrained spline dynamics (CSD) as a unified framework for the elastodynamic simulation of elastic rods subjected to constraints at interactive rates. The geometry of the rod and its kinematics are discretized using smooth spline functions and the rod’s centerline co-ordinates as degrees of freedom. Interpolating B-splin...
Background The virtual basic laparoscopic skill trainer suturing simulator (VBLaST-SS©) was developed to simulate the intracorporeal suturing task in the FLS program. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the training effectiveness and participants’ learning curves on the VBLaST-SS© and to assess whether the skills were retained after 2 weeks w...
Background Intracorporeal suturing is one of the most important and difficult procedures in laparoscopic surgery. Practicing on a FLS trainer box is effective but requires large number of consumables, and the scoring is somewhat subjective and not immediate. A virtual basic laparoscopic skill trainer (VBLaST©) was developed to simulate the five tas...

Background: Suturing with intracorporeal knot-tying is one of the five tasks of the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS), which is a pre-requisite for board certification in general surgery. This task involves placing a short suture through two marks in a penrose drain and then tying a double-throw knot followed by two single-throw knots usi...
To develop a virtual simulator to train residents and evaluate their skills, as they perform virtual procedures in laparoscopic surgery. This project is funded by NIH, grant number: R44- EB019802
