A: Good


Discussion & Conclusion

Q: Is it related to the results presented before? Do you consider them as coherent?

A: Good


Comments: The Discussion establishes that with the decline of surgical procedures performed by trainees, the supplementation of intraoperative education with digital technologies such as video-based coaching has become increasingly essential. It illustrates the advantages and limitations faced while recording the operation procedure. The Discussion highlights the importance of video-based learning in surgical education. The videos recorded can be used to make a video library which will help surgical residents. The study concludes that video-based coaching can help advance the education of a newer generation of surgery residents, especially when involving infrequently performed surgical operations.

Further comments on the paper

Comments: The study presents the benefits and drawbacks of recording, editing, and uploading surgical procedures for educational use. An educational video that demonstrates the surgical technique for an antegrade mesenteric bypass to treat chronic mesenteric ischaemia (CMI) has been described. The COVID-19 pandemic has decreased the number of open cases performed by general and vascular surgical trainees. Thus, the need for the supplementation of intraoperative education with digital technologies has increased. The study highlights that the video recordings of the operative procedures mentioned in this study were from the surgeon’s point of view, making it beneficial. The video coaching described in this study is a less frequently performed operation. Therefore, the video will provide surgical trainees with opportunities to increase knowledge and skill in this field. The drawbacks faced while recording the video have been illustrated. The study concludes that filming surgeries to create a high-definition video library will help surgical trainees familiarize themselves with procedures and/or enhance their learning, especially during mandated social distancing.
