Abstract

Laparoscopic gastrostomy tube placement is a common surgical procedure performed in infants. There are currently no commercially available simulation tools for pediatric surgeons to use for surgical training and practice purposes. We have created a low cost and reusable laparoscopic gastrostomy tube placement model for use in pediatric surgical education.
