Synopsis: 
Training in laparoscopic surgery is essential for today’s surgical residents, but surgical simulators are costly. This article described the construction of a cheap, easy-to-assemble laparoscopic simulator which is suitable for use in training Caribbean residents in laparoscopic surgery.

ABSTRACT

Background: To the modern surgeon in training, the acquisition of laparoscopic skills is essential. Laparoscopic simulators are effective, but in the often-resource-poor setting of the Caribbean, the cost of these simulators is often prohibitive. We describe the construction of a simulator which is cheap, easy to assemble and effective. It is also relatively easy to mass produce for use in training programmes across the region.
