Aorta model with femoral arteries representative of healthy vasculature. Neither coronary ostia nor branch vessels are present in this model, other silicone arch models are available if these vessels are desired. This silicone aorta model is suitable for development, testing, marketing and physician training purposes for thoracic aorta, abdominal aorta and femoral interventional devices. Upon request, the BDC team can integrate a custom aneurysm, dissection or calcification into this vasculature at any location.
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.
