A silicone thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) model with extensive aneurysms throughout the descending aorta with associated tortuosity representative of diseased vasculature. Iliac vessels are present with moderate tortuosity. This silicone TAA vasculature is suitable for endovascular stent graft development, testing, marketing and physician training purposes. Upon request, the BDC team can adjust the aneurysm and/or iliac tortuosity to meet our client’s needs.
To achieve a clinically relevant experience with advancement and retraction, eliminating the inherent tackiness of silicone vasculature, BDC can apply our SLICTM friction reduction coating to all of our anatomical models. Read More
As with all BDC Laboratories silicone vasculature, the model can be delivered with one of three housing options: a simple acrylic sheet with silicone tie-downs, an acrylic drip tray with vessel supports to maintain 3D geometry during use, or an acrylic tank with through-wall fittings and appropriate vessel supports. Furthermore, BDC’s housing solutions include integrated hemostatic valves for seamless introduction of guidewires, catheters and delivery systems when the model is used under fluid pressure or pulsatile flow.
