The diffusion of new transcatheter approach to treat heart pathologies goes hand in hand with the need for surgeons to acquire new skills, other than those involved in conventional open-heart surgery. In this context, the need for an adequate surgical training phase is growing. If carefully designed, in vitro simulators can provide realistic platforms for training operators in these challenging procedures. We aimed to design and develop training-oriented vascular models with realistic anatomy and haptic feedback.

Abstract

The diffusion of new transcatheter approach to treat heart pathologies goes hand in hand with the need for surgeons to acquire new skills, other than those involved in conventional open-heart surgery. In this context, the need for an adequate surgical training phase is growing. If carefully designed, in vitro simulators can provide realistic platforms for training operators in these challenging procedures. We aimed to design and develop training-oriented vascular models with realistic anatomy and haptic feedback.
