3D Printed Simulation Models

NEPHRECTOMY SIMULATOR

The models for this simulation are created in a range of silicone densities and colours to match those in the body. The models can be placed within a laparoscopic simulator for dissection. The tumour, parenchyma and capsule are created in contrasting density of silicone to allow clear differentiation. The arteries, veins and ureter can be included. Kidney stones can be supplied if required. By Lazarus 3D.

OVARIAN CYST REMOVAL SIMULATOR

This model is made in silicone to replicate the look and feel of human tissue. It is intended for use in a laparoscopic simulator. The model has a large cyst contained within one of the ovaries. By Lazarus 3D.

CRANIOTOMY SIMULATOR

The models for this simulation are made in a variety of materials that closely mimic the appearance and physical properties of the anatomy. The brain is 3D printed in life-like silicone together with a skull in woodfill or plaster. The skin is created by adding a thin layer of silicone onto the skull. The materials have been selected to provide as high fidelity as is possible without using organic sources.

CARDIAC SIMULATOR

This 3D printed heart model is made in silicone to replicate the consistency of cardiac tissue. It can be sutured using standard materials. The model can be nested in a thorax or a set of 3D printed ribs and lungs to further increase the realism to the surgeon.

HEMITHORAX SIMULATOR

This simulator is a realistic thorax made in silicone and plastics. It includes accurate bone, muscle and skin layers. It can be used either with other 3D printed anatomical models of heats or lungs etc or with porcine tissues. The chest model is compatible with most standard ports and can be used to practice port placement. It is an ideal training aid for Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS). By Lazarus 3D.

LOBECTOMY SIMULATOR

This silicone model of a lung enables accurate and lifelike lobectomy training. It contains arteries, veins and airways in  differentiated and realistic materials. It is superior to porcine lungs in that both left and right lungs are included allowing simulation on all 5 lobes. This model can be combined with other models including the Hemithorax and Cardiac. By Lazarus 3D.

COMPLETE URINARY SIMULATOR

This set of models includes two kidneys, a bladder, a ureter and a urethra. Some of the uses include simulations of nephroscopy, ureter stenting, stone Removal and cystoscopy. It has as accurate calyx and collecting system structure. The system is watertight and can therefore be used for irrigation and insufflation. It is compatible with all standard instruments. Ports can be added to the kidney for the placement of kidney stones. By Lazarus 3D.

CYSTOSCOPY SIMULATOR

This model includes all of the necessary internal features including the trigonal ridge. It is perfect for demonstrating the use of cystoscopes and for urology training. Different densities of materials are used in the creation of the bladder, urethra and ureters to make them as lifelike as possible. The model is watertight and comes with a stand that keeps the bladder in position.

CRICOTHYROIDOTOMY SIMULATOR

This model allows a surgeon to simulate a cricothyroidotomy. It includes a detailed replica of the bone and cartilage layer including hyoid bone, cricoid and thyroid cartilage The model is encased in silicone skin and is supplied with a pack of fat and blood which adds realism to this simulation.

FETUS AND UTERUS SIMULATOR

This simulation model is created in a variety of densities of silicone to mimic real life. It includes a realistic model of a foetus and cord inside a fluid filled uterus. It is used to practice foetal surgery, C-section delivery, and placenta accreta treatment. The model can be customised to include lifelike features, including lower urinary tract obstruction, and spina bifida.
