Vascular International Foundation and School is an organization based in Switzerland that has been in business for over 25 years with the sole mission of running hands-on open vascular skills simulation courses in Europe. Their organization was chosen by the European Vascular Association to evaluate the surgical skills of vascular fellows. VI designed this line of high quality simulators to simulate realistic workstations with state of the art pulsatile pump systems.
The Vascular International Carotid Head Simulator consists of a male size head with an opening at the neck where the LifeLike Carotid Artery with Plaque or the VI Embedded Carotid Arteries with Plaque and Dermis is placed. The trainee can be trained on carotid dissection and carotid endarterectomy skills. Complete with a pulsatile pump to add flow through the simulator, the Vascular International Carotid Head provides a very realistic training scenario.
The Vascular International Carotid Head Simulator includes a male size head secured in a box with an opening at the neck where a LifeLike Carotid Artery with Plaque or the VI Embedded Carotid Arteries with Plaque and Dermis can be placed. The Head comes with a pulsatile pump to check the quality of the repair.
Use the Vascular International Carotid Head Simulator for skills development training:
Realistic human head with neck opening at the proper angle
Allows trainees to practice accessing and removing plaque, as well as suturing at the bifurcation
Allows for the suturing of a carotid patch
Pulsatile pump is included and useful to evaluate the quality of the repair
