Application Of Modeling In Laparoscopy

The use of mathematical modeling in laparoscopy is expanding^ Gettman et al (20) recently published an elegant study on the use of a nonlinear method to predict operative performance of laparoscopic surgery based on the assessment of surgeon performance in completing certain skill tasks^ Lotan et al have utilized decision tree models to perform cost effectiveness comparison between laparoscopic and open nephrectomy cases (21,22) These are but a sample of some of the potential applications in laparoscopic urology

The use of mathematical modeling to predict hospital duration of stay after laparo-scopic radical, simple, or partial nephrectomy by our group will now be presented^
