Introduction: We present the use of a webcam to replace a laparoscopic tower and allows to dispense of the second operator for training

Objective: Validation of a prototype of the endocamera with an integrated light and original support

Methods: The endocamera was built using a Logitech®webcam, led lights and a 3Dprinted support. Were used in the MT-BOX1training simulator to perform exercises by surgeons gathered according to their experience in MIS

Evaluated with a survey:

Collision between the instruments and the camera

Lighting, focus, contrast,delay, panoramic vision

Range of motion

Results: All of them agreed that it was ergonomic, practical and aesthetically acceptable. There was no vision delay in any exercise and the vision was evaluated as “very good”. Range of motion were similar. All of them emphasized the utility of this to perform exercises without other operator

Conclusion: The endocamera has proved to be a useful tool to perform exercises
