The super

What is SUPER?

SUPER stands for Surgical techniqUe rePorting chEcklist and standaRds. There is a deficiency in the current reporting of surgical technique, which makes objective evaluation and reproduction challenging.

We hope that through SUPER, the level of detail, completeness, transparency, and quality of surgical technique reporting will be improved, and that the surgical techniques will thus become more reproducible. SUPER is expected to be completed in the second half of 2021 and officially published in the first half of 2022.

Who should use SUPER?

All clinical surgeons and team members involved in surgery, including surgical nurses, anesthesiologists, etc., are all potential users of SUPER.
