Silicone neurovascular model starting from the branch vessels, distal through the Circle of Willis, and including the vertebral, internal and external carotid arteries representative of healthy vasculature. An complete 360 degree loop and notable tortuosity in present in this neurovascular model. This carotid artery and Circle of Willis vasculature can be used to simulate endovascular procedures such as carotid artery stenting, intracranial stenting and flow diverters. Upon request, the BDC team can include an aneurysm(s) and/or adjust vessel tortuosity, as well as include calcification 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.
