From: Hysteroscopy training and learning curve of 30° camera navigation on a new box trainer: the HYSTT

Parameter First series: learning curve Second series: retention of skills
First repetition Last repetition Significancea Last repetition Significanceb
Time (s) 869.4 (95% CI, 570.1–1168.6) 154.3 (95% CI, 130.3–178.3) p < 0.05, ES = 0.44 121.0 (95% CI, 103.3–138.8) p < 0.05c, ES = 0.35
Mean GRS (5-point scale) 1.83 (95% CI, 1.59–2.08) 3.78 (95% CI, 3.50–4.06) p < 0.05, ES = 0.71 4.13 (95% CI, 3.95–4.32) p < 0.05c, ES = 0.65
