In some specific maxillo-facial surgeries, like the Epker, the cortical part of
the lower maxilla must be drilled with minimum penetration into the spongy bone
to avoid the trigeminal nerve. The result of the surgery is highly dependent on
the quality of the drill. Drilling must therefore be mastered by students before
acting as surgeon.
The study compares the efficiency of two punctual drilling training programs
developed on a virtual reality platform with non medical participants. The
results show better benefit of training on relevant haptic aspects of the task
before introducing multimodal drilling over repeated multimodal simulated

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.
An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the
OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access
to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific
search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be
generated by different means.
If your librarian has set up your subscription with an
OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
