The carotid endarterectomy (CEA) training cartridge is the most realistic vascular surgery trainer on the market. The simulated artery cuts and sutures like real human vascular tissue and includes lifelike plaque. Users can practice dissection, clamping, shunting, endarterectomy, and patch angioplasty techniques techniques in an unparalleled simulated environment. The CEA cartridge also includes the jugular vein, facial vein, sternocleidomastoid muscle, vagus nerve, and hypoglossal nerve. Blood flow can be simulated by using this product in the compatible Open Vascular Training System.
All materials are non-toxic and can be stored in ambient environments. Each cartridge contains the following simulated anatomical components: carotid artery with plaque, soft tissue for dissection, jugular vein, facial vein, vagus nerve, hypoglossal nerve, and sternocleidomastoid muscle. Cartridges come in three skin colors: light, tan, and dark. Cartridges are compatible with the Open Vascular Training System and come with a synthetic “bovine” patch.
Instructions for Use
Use with Open Vascular Training System for simulated blood flow. Run water through cartridge for 5 min before use to ensure realistic plaque consistency. Though all materials used are non-toxic, it is recommended to wear gloves when practicing the procedure.
