Cardiothoracic surgical simulator for training strategies associated with surgical revascularization of coronary artery diseases. Developed in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Piergiorgio Tozzi, Cardiac Surgeon, University Hospital Lausanne, CHUV. Working with Dr. Tozzi, and building on our 20+ years of experience, this advanced, mimetic tissue CT anatomy training model was specifically tailored to his course requirements.
The High Fidelity CT Surgical Trainer provides a complete anatomical platform for training and hands-on practice of surgical techniques in arrested heart CABG cases from skin-to-skin. Trainer allows creation of a sternotomy by trainees, including identifying landmarks by feel, incision of skin, cutting the sternum, and wiring it closed. Replaceable High Fidelity RIMAs and LIMAs attach to underside of sternal bib to allow practice of thorascopic take-down, dissection, and graft harvesting. Replaceable Epicardial Discs in the surface of the heart may be incised to expose target coronary arteries for CABG.
Our patented Beating Heart technology has the feel and movement of a live human heart, accurately simulates systole/diastole, and allows control of heart rate. These hearts are animated by the combined action of our Beating Heart Controller (#1464) and a regulated source of compressed air. (“Wall air” may be used in lieu of a compressor if air pressure is regulated.) Its modular chambers and aorta are replaceable and easily exchanged for deliberate practice without the use of animal tissue. Cannulatable, suturable, and replaceable Right Atrium (#1524) and Aorta (#1523) accept pressurized fluid flow. The Aorta is configured to allow cross-clamping.
