Dr. Fann of Stanford University demonstrates the practice of vessel anastomosis on a Vessel Anastomosis Trainer* from The Chamberlain Group. This Trainer was developed under the guidance of the Thoracic Surgery Director’s Association (TSDA) and Dr. Fann. This instructional video (from Top Gun Cardiothoracic) is designed to assist surgical residents with the acquisition and refinement of needle handling techniques and anastomotic skills.
*NOTE: This is an earlier version of the trainer and is no longer available. Our Pocket Vessel Anastomis Trainer (#1389) differs from the one in the video only in that it has a clear cover and lacks side-arms.
