Listen (http://www.liebertpub.com/Mcontent/podcasts/videoscopy.html) to a podcast in which Video Editors McClusky and Wulkan explain what led to the launch of Videoscopy, and how this groundbreaking new resource will enhance surgical education and improve patient outcomes.
The premier issue highlights eight videos, including a laparoscopic nephrectomy, with video of the back-table dissection, and the first video of a single-incision low anterior resection on cadavers. Pediatric surgical videos show a video-assisted thoracoscopic esophagectomy and laparoscopic gastric transposition, and a therapeutic laparoscopy for high-grade intestinal obstruction. Videoscopy is a constantly evolving forum for the exchange of new ideas and techniques, especially for early adopters of technology.
"Videoscopy will have a tremendous impact," says Dr. Smith. "Surgeons will have ready access to their colleagues' videos detailing the tips, tricks, and finer techniques of an operation. They will see exactly how to execute the most important parts of procedures, both common and exotic procedures, whenever they want by accessing a video at home or in the office, before scrubbing for surgery, or even in the operating room. Such a resource has never before been so widely available through a peer-review process."
"Videoscopy offers seamless submission and peer review on Manuscript Centralthe same way you submit full manuscripts to JLAST," adds Dr. McClusky. "The submission process is straightforward and user friendly, with publisher support as needed."
