The Embedded Vessels Pad feels, sutures, and behaves like real live tissue. With the VI Box, trainees can now train on ultrasound, dissection, and vessel exposure. Also train any vascular surgical skill, such as end-to-end or end-to-side anastomosis with a saphenous vein, femoral endarterectomy, carotid endarterectomy and repair, as well as femoral cannulation while using the pump to check for the quality of the repair.
SUTURES AND BEHAVES LIKE REAL TISSUE
The new VI Box will change the quality of education significantly. It makes exercises on animal tissues a thing of the past. The patient safety will be increased to the maximum, because the skills will be trained and sharpened on the model before applied on patients.
