Description

The Inovus appendix model is a low cost, single use model designed to allow training surgeons to work through the critical steps in laparoscopic appendectomy. The product represents ‘standard anatomy’ including terminal caecum, Ilium, appendix and mesoappendix, whilst offering close to life tissue handling and real time haptic feedback.

The Inovus appendectomy model can be held in place with the Inovus suturing base or the soft tissue retaining clip available on the Inovus store and on the drop down menu for this product. We strongly recommend buying one of these retaining options for optimal performance of the model.

The core skills that can be developed with this model include:

• Walking the Ilium
• Mobilising the appendix
• Dissection of mesoappendix
• Ligate Appendix
• Dissect Appendix
• Visceral control
