- Efficiency of technical skills (%) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]The software analyzes the percentage of time the needle-holders' ends are kept outside the operative field (%); total number of entrance and exit points through which the needle has passed; total aggressive tissue handling; total amount of strain applied to tissue during needle passages; total needle loading time; total number of completed knots; total number of needle loadings; total number of needle passages; total number of stitches; total time the needle-holders' ends are kept outside the predefined operative field; total time to accomplish the suture; Total time to form a knot. For salpingectomy: efficiency of cautery (%); number of non-cauterized bleeding; number of serious complications: possible damage to vital structures; safe cautery (%); the time cautery is applied without appropriate contact with adhesions; total number of applied clips.
