View Brochure Belly Case provides surgical learners with a platform for deliberate practice of open gastrointestinal operative skills in a safe, repeatable environment. It consists of a compact abdomen including the pertinent adult anatomy of a midline incision (7 ” x 5 “) and an alternate abdominal wall with dual ostomy sites without the bulk or expense of a full abdomen. Users not only have the experience of suturing with our realistic mimetic Tactility Bowel (#2126), but of doing so within the constraints of the abdomen.
Belly Case includes:
- Suitcase Abdomen
- Midline Incision Bib with Abdominal Incision (7″ x 5″)
- Ostomy Bib with dual Ostomy Perforations
- Positionable Arm
- Bowel and Small Vessel Anastomosis Stand with Patency Assessment Capability
- Syringe for Patency Assessment
- Vessel Stabilizing Clip
- Carrying Case
When practicing bowel and vessel anastomoses the anatomy may be filled with fluid or air via a mating luer lock on the supporting stand to test for “hemostasis. ” Suturing may be preserved and presented to mentoring faculty for review and progress assessment.Designed specifically to address the hands-on needs of the general surgery resident training open surgery anastomosis and ostomy suturing in the abdominal cavity. Belly Case may also be used with our Target and Graft Vessels for small vessel anastomosis.
