The introduction of laparoscopic surgery has put focus on the assessment of the technical abilities of the surgeon. Studies on learning curves have often focused on operative time, conversion rate, complication rate and length of hospital stay as effect parameters. Learning is a complex process, and the interpretation of learning curves is not straight-forward. This paper addresses the problems concerning the analysis of learning curves in surgery.
