Our advanced surgical training models simulate all critical elements of a specific procedure. The materials included have biomechanical characteristics similar to those of human tissue, and behave in a similar manner during cutting, manipulation, suturing, and electro-cautery. Relevant anatomical elements like bowel, vasculature, fat, and other features of internal viscera are included. The advanced trainers have full medical imaging compatibility (CT scan, 2-dimensional and 3D ultrasound) and simulate true operative metrics of performance (blood loss, tumor margins, operative and ischemia time, amongst others).
Bladder Tumor Resection (TURBT) Phantom
Full procedural simulator for transurethral resection of bladder tumor. The trainer contains realistic models of urethra, ureteral orifices, and 3 tumors of varying difficulty (size, location, depth of penetration, degree of vascularity).
Kidney Stone Removal Phantom
Full procedural PCNL simulator constructed around a highly realistic recreation of the pelvicalyceal system. Compatible with fluoroscopic guidance for percutaneous access and wire insertion/positioning. Stone break up can be accomplished with pneumatic, ultrasonic, and laser lithotripsy.
Transurethral Prostate Phantom
En block phantom containing penis, urethra, prostate and bladder developed for common endoscopic procedures including cystoscopy, resection, laser prostatectomy biopsy and cautery.
Available for sale Late Fall 2020
Partial Nephrectomy Phantom
The surgical trainer replicates a complete robotic partial nephrectomy procedure with control of the renal artery, exposure of the lesions with realistic resection using standard instruments. The phantom contains a kidney with tumors located at both poles, a renal hilum with artery and vein, pelvis, calyces, ureter and perinephric fat. Other tumor locations available upon request.
The prostate training model is a benchtop polymer-based model that permits transrectal ultrasound-guided procedures. The phantom consists of a prostate gland with multiple tumors, urethra, rectum, and perineum. This model can be used for training of transrectal ultrasound (video), prostate biopsy, transperineal and MRI fusion biopsy, brachytherapy, hydrogel insertion, and cryotherapy. MRI-imaging data included upon request.
