Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Simulator
- Material: Silicone
- Anatomy: Cardiovascular
- Application: Structural Heart and Valve
The picture above shows the TAVR simulator, which includes silicone vascular model, pulsatile pump, pressure chamber, temperature chamber and pressure monitor. It is design for TAVR procedure training and demonstration. The vascular model is 3D printed based on real CT data for physiological fidelity. It includes a full aorta down to femoral artery, featuring left ventricle and aortic valve. The aortic valve can be detached from aorta and replaced with other aortic valve model. Two approaches are provided - transfemoral approach and transapical approach. We equip a pulsatile pump for the vascular model to simulate endovascular environment. It can function as a heart and drive the aortic valve open and closed. Different aortic valve models (healthy or calcification; stenosis or regurgitation) can be attached to the vascular model for more usage scenarios.
