LifeLike’s Aortic Valve feels, cuts, sutures, and behaves like real live tissue. The Aortic Valve mimics human aortic root with annulus and coronaries with the same tactile and mechanical properties of a real aortic root. This is a great tool for the training of aortic valve repair and replacement. The valve can be secured using the Aortic Valve Base, or the Adjustable Aortic Valve Base.
High Fidelity. Ready for Use at Home, Lab or Hospital.
Reusable. Long Shelf Life. No Refrigeration Required. Easy to Dispose. Non-Toxic. Non-Latex. Non-Oily. Packed in Water.
LifeLike Aortic Valves come in different sizes to fit 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29 and 31mm replacement valves. The model has two coronary arteries of 3 mm ID and 4 mm OD, a 20 mm ventricle and an ascending aorta 25 mm long.
“It has been an amazing experience being able to work with LifeLike to develop the aortic valve for our training purposes. Our customers are always surprised that we can train on the aortic valve right there in their office, we do not need to worry about any animal or human tissue. And then, when the customer actually starts to cut and suture into the aortic valve, the comment we receive every time is ‘Wow, this feels so real.’ The aortic valve developed by LifeLike has provided us with maximum flexibility and speed in our customer training because we can carry the aortic valve with us anywhere we go and we can train at anytime – we would never be able to do that with a pig heart! We feel we are not sacrificing the technical aspects of our training program because the aortic valve is so realistic and has been the best alternative to animal tissue.”
Use LifeLike BioTissue Aortic Valves for Skills Development Training:
Aortic Valve Replacement or Valve Repair:
- Use valve to gain exposure, conduct an aortotomy, remove aortic valve leaflets, suture in an aortic prosthetic heart valve, and close the aorta
- Requires an Aortic Valve Base or an Adjustable Aortic Valve Base to position the valve correctly
