The Saphenous Vein Trainer Clear Insert is designed to be used in our reusable Saphenous Vein Trainer base (#1041) for lifelike simulation of endoscopic, MIS, or open harvesting of the saphenous vein. The transparent skin and fatty tissue allow for direct vessel visualization without an endoscope. This may be used in initial training sessions to introduce new users to the harvesting method. The replaceable clear insert has a 26″ x 3″ wide x 1″ deep area of fatty tissue with embedded, branching vessel. Branches may be transected with a variety of instruments, including ultrasound scalpel.
The insert is also available with an opaque skin (#1040).
