Transcatheter valve simulator heart model
The Transcatheter Valve Simulator is an anatomically designed aortic implantation model composed of the left ventricular outflow tract, an exchangeable aortic valve, the aortic root with the left and right coronary orifices, the complete aortic arch with supraaortic vessels and the descending aorta. All parts have been designed in close collaboration with Dr. Ch. Huber, a Swiss Cardiovascular Surgeon and Pioneer of the Trans Apical Procedure to guaranty for a most realistic and anatomically correct Transcatheter Valve simulation platform.
One of the distinctive features is the disposable aortic valve that can easily be exchanged after several implantations by the exceptional split-bloc construction of the transcatheter valve model. Furthermore, the specific design makes recovery of the implanted device quick and simple. The system also provides the necessary connection to a continuous or pulsatile flow generator in order to create physiologic flow dynamics and wet-lab functionality.
Additionally, the unique design allows for a bidirectional approach including the antegrade transapical as well as the
Elastrat Sàrl is a worldwide leader in the development, realization and distribution of human anatomical vascular phantoms.
Our Swiss made transparent soft or rigid silicon phantoms reproduce the anatomical vasculature with its pathologies like aneurysms or stenoses and can be trained through navigation with stents, catheters and coils. They provide a realistic environment for the simulation of endovascular procedures, pre-surgery training, studies and teaching purposes for interventionists, such as interventional cardiologists (neuroradiologists, etc.), interventional radiology-cardiologists, and interventional angiologists.
The models promote safety through education and professional competence.
