Using the mind as a simulator: a randomized controlled trial of mental training.
J Surg Educ
PUBLISHED: 03-31-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Laparoscopic simulators have been introduced as safe and effective methods of developing basic skills. Mental training is a novel training method likened to using the mind as a simulator to mentally rehearse the movements of a task or operation. It is widely used by professional athletes and musicians and has been suggested as a technique that could be used by surgical trainees. The purpose of this study was to assess the use of mental training in developing basic laparoscopic skills in novices.

Antibiotic therapy for prophylaxis against infection of pancreatic necrosis in acute pancreatitis.
Cochrane Database Syst Rev
PUBLISHED: 05-14-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Pancreatic necrosis may complicate severe acute pancreatitis, and is detectable by computed tomography (CT). If it becomes infected mortality increases, but the use of prophylactic antibiotics raises concerns about antibiotic resistance and fungal infection.

Large bowel obstruction in pregnancy: a rare entity, an unusual cause.
Arch. Gynecol. Obstet.
PUBLISHED: 04-04-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Large bowel obstruction is a rare and difficult diagnosis in pregnancy. Common causes are caecal and sigmoid volvulus and less common pseudo-obstruction. An infrequent cause of large bowel obstruction from an adhesive band in pregnancy causing diagnostic difficulty is reported.

Lateral cervical lymph node metastases in papillary thyroid cancer: a systematic review of imaging-guided and prophylactic removal of the lateral compartment.
Clin. Endocrinol. (Oxf)
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) is a common endocrine cancer and frequently presents with lymph node (LN) metastases. The frequency of LN metastases in the lateral compartment and their surgical removal are poorly defined. There are no prospective randomised controlled trials addressing an eventual outcome difference relating to the extent of the initial surgical approach. The aim of this study was to define the extent of lateral LN involvement and the role of imaging in identification of these metastatic LN.

Terminology inaccuracies in the interpretation of imaging results in detection of cervical lymph node metastases in papillary thyroid cancer.
Endocr Connect
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Cervical lymph nodes (CLNs) are the most common site of metastases in papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). Ultrasound scan (US) is the most commonly used imaging modality in the evaluation of CLNs in PTC. Computerised tomography (CT) and (18)fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)FDG PET-CT) are used less commonly. It is widely believed that the above imaging techniques should guide the surgical approach to the patient with PTC.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
