abdominal surgery simulator / torso
for abdominal surgery
A highly detailed abdominal trainer with great versatility. Designed as a workhorse for general surgery applications, the Abdominal Surgery Trainer (AST) presents staple-compatible organs and tack-compatible skins for both laparoscopic and open procedures.
Since the trainer organs and skins may be replaced individually, the user can concentrate on a particular procedure, or multiple procedures, in the upper or lower abdomen and replace only what is used. Oral and anal access permit device introduction via the mouth and esophagus or the rectum. The landscape of the retroperitoneal organs provides anatomical reference and fully-dimensional surrounding organs include the liver, gall bladder, spleen, anterior bony pelvis, urinary bladder, ureters, and pelvic floor muscles.
It includes: rapidly replaceable Stomach (#2118), Duodenum (#2144) Small Bowel (#2119), and Colon (#2120), covers that allow both open and lap access, and Laprascopic Hernia Skin (#2140) for hernia training. An optional Open Hernia Skin (#2139) is sold seperately. The trainer is designed to accommodate the following procedures:
Open and Laparoscopic Hemicolectomies
Open and Laparoscopic Lower Anterior Resection
Open and Laparoscopic Roux–en-Y Gastric Bypass
Open and Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia Repair
