Vascular International Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Abdomen Simulator
Vascular International Foundation and School is an organization based in Switzerland that has been in business for over 25 years with the sole mission of running hands-on open vascular skills simulation courses in Europe. Their organization was chosen by the European Vascular Association to evaluate the surgical skills of vascular fellows. VI designed this line of high quality simulators to simulate realistic workstations with state of the art pulsatile pump systems.
The Vascular International AAA Abdomen Simulator consists of a male size torso with a midline incision and cavity where the LifeLike AAA Model is placed. The trainee can be trained on all steps of an Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) procedure; access the Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, utilize all the surgical tools and repair the aneurysm at the right angles. Complete with a pulsatile pump to add flow through the simulator, the Vascular International AAA Abdomen provides a very realistic training scenario.
The Vascular International AAA Abdomen Simulator includes a male size torso with an opening along the middle where the VI AAA Model (provided with simulator) or the LifeLike AAA Model can be placed. The Abdomen comes with a pulsatile pump to check the quality of the repair.
Use the Vascular International AAA Abdomen Simulator for skills development training:
- Realistic human torso at the proper angle
- Practice usage of all vascular instruments to access, cut, clamp, suture, graph and repair the aneurysm
- Pulsatile pump is included and useful to evaluate the quality of the repair
- The silicone based Vascular International AAA Abdomen Simulator is approximately 54 cm X 35 cm x 15 cm and weighs about 5 kg.
