This application contains close to 100 videos from the ‘surgery in motion’ section of the European Urology journal. The videos are organized based on either date of upload or category of video (i.e. cystectomy, endoscopic, incontinence, prostatectomy, robotic, etc. videos). The videos are short pieces highlighting a specific surgeons/institutions technique for a certain procedure. The videos show highlights of the procedure being performed along with commentary describing the techniques instituted by the specific surgeon and how to perform them. Several videos discuss patient outcomes of the various techniques/surgeries presented.
Sexiness of Interface/Ease of Use:
The app has a very clean and easy to use interface separating the videos into ‘latest videos’ and by ‘categories,’ making it easy to navigate through the videos. Once selected, I found controlling the videos quite intuitive and it was easy to move between menus.
This app is mainly intended for residents and practicing urologists, although as stated medical students interested in urology could find use in these videos. This app is not intended for patients.
This is an interesting and fun app that will allow easy access for residents and practicing urologists to explore newer and novel techniques for certain procedures and may help medical students visually learn about a surgery and anatomy prior to scrubbing in.
