Availability of VR laparoscopic simulation for surgical training has increased significantly. Nevertheless, few studies have explored such simulators? requirements and the degree of fidelity necessary to provide effective educational tools. The authors aim to identify which didactic resources available in VR simulation technologies are most important for laparoscopic training.
