Survey study of 10 general surgery residents on their perceptions of using GoPro to video-record an arteriovenous fistula creation operation in live operative setting, for future use with an attending surgeon in a coaching session. The attending surgeon evaluated the video using OPRS, and the score was shared immediately with the resident. Although no coaching took place in this pilot study, 9 out of 10 wanted to review the video with the attending surgeon for further feedback.
