Background: It is often seen that surgeons face with a situation where he is asked to perform procedure which he has never done independently before. During such times traditionally surgeons refer to standard textbooks before he goes to perform the surgery. However, with increased awareness and use of social media, surgeons are increasingly taking resort of easily available YouTube videos. Aim: This study aims to compare the effectiveness of traditional textbook-based learning (TBL) with video-based teaching (VBT) for basic laparoscopic suturing skills training by comparing pre- and post-test cognitive and psychomotor skills. Materials and Methods: Randomized control trial. Results: A total of 50 residents were divided randomly into TBL and VBT groups. The mean post test scores for both the skills in each group showed a significant improvement compared to the pretest results (P < 0.001). While comparing the post test scores among both the groups it was seen that VBT is as effective as TBL. Conclusion: Based on this study we can safely conclude that video-based learning is an effective mode of learning as compared to TBL for teaching laparoscopic suturing skill.
