Embedded Femoral Groin Model
The LifeLike Embedded Femoral Groin Model was designed with Dr. Mark Mattos from Wayne State University to assess the advance surgical skills of fellows.
The LifeLike Embedded Femoral Groin Model consists of a Femoral Artery with plaque at the bifurcation and the profunda femoralis, Femoral Vein and Nerve. The Groin Model can be placed in The VI Box which simultaneously supplies femoral pulsatile flow to the Femoral Artery as well as venous flow to the Femoral Vein. Senior fellows can be trained to dissect the femoral artery, find the plaque at the bifurcation and the profunda femoralis, perform an endarterectomy, and suture on a patch.
