Characterising 'near miss' events in complex laparoscopic surgery through video analysis.
Bonrath EM, Gordon LE, Grantcharov TP. BMJ Qual Saf. 2015 May 6; [Epub ahead of print].
This series of blinded video reviews of laparoscopic surgeries identified the technical surgical errors that led to complications. This study adds to the emerging evidence supporting peer review of operating room videos. A recent AHRQ WebM&M interview with John Birkmeyer discussed his video study that found a link between practicing surgeons' directly observed technical skills and surgical safety outcomes.
