The mobile platform is becoming increasingly relevant, since more searches are now performed on smartphones and tablets than with desktop or laptop computers, and this trend is expected to continue. 11 Our results also appeared to be consistent over time, indicating that the addition of new information and updating of websites was not common. The data presented here suggest that patients and parents should be directed to governmental sites for educational materials. The reading level of material on these

hours after surgery. Urinary catheter and subgaleal drains (if present) were withdrawn 24 hours after surgery. All the wounds were left exposed at day 3 after surgery. Hospital discharge was dependent on the type of intervention; patients undergoing endoscopic repair were discharged on the 3rd day, whereas those having open surgery were discharged on day 5. To enable easy-to-use communication and collect health surveys twice per day during the 1st week after discharge, with the aim to detect any complication, a smartphone application was developed (CHUV

for discharge on day 3. The occurrence of DI did not preclude a hospital discharge at day 3, provided that the patient’s symptoms were controlled with treatment, electrolyte levels were normal, and an early outpatient reassessment after 2–3 days was feasible. Monitoring of pituitary functions continued after discharge from the hospital, with hormone and electrolyte blood tests performed at the outpatient clinic. We created a structure with contact points for patients and families in case of problems after discharge. A smartphone application was used (CHUV@home) to

Interactive microsurgical anatomy education using photogrammetry 3D models and an augmented reality cube

study incorporates photogrammetry techniques and AR technology using an inexpensive educational tool called Merge Cube (Merge Labs Inc.), a lightweight handheld foam cube that, when synchronized with a smart device, allows digital 3D objects to be viewed and manipulated. The cube relies on AR marker-based (i.e., quick response [QR] code) detection technology and allows users to hold and interact with 3D objects. QR codes on each of the 6 sides allow positional display of the 3D model when a side is scanned, such as with a tablet or smartphone. The cube uses tactile
