The Microsurgical Developments PVC-Rat is developed to master skills in microsurgery and is an example of the replacement of living animals, one of the main goals of our foundation. Using the model during training of for example scientists and animal technicians, the number of live-animals needed, will be reduced drastically. It gives the possibility of training approximately 25 different microsurgical techniques. Examples are anastomoses (end-to-end, end-to-side), cannulations and transplantations of vessels and organs.
MD PVC-Rat technical information - The MD-PVC-Rat comes in a carrying case, together with a video-user-guide, several spare parts and the computer simulation software "Remote". Several parts of the model can easily be replaced, however, one can use vessels and arteries many times. Spare parts (e.g. vessels, artery's and organs) are also available. In the neck-region of the model you see Jugular vein, Carotid artery and Trachea. In the abdominal cavity you can perform cannulations (of e.g. Portal vein or Vena cava), anastomoses (e.g. end-to-end, end-to-side or side-to-side) and transplantation of organs.
