The perfect accessory to any of our Small Suture Pads, the Tensioning Base acts to hold your pad in place conforming it to a rounded surface to replicate life-like surface tension of an incision. After securing your pad to the base, once cut, the incision will “open up” allowing the student to gain realistic access to the lower muscle and fascia layers for deep suturing. The bottom of the base features a tacky rubber to prevent your Base from sliding across the table mid-suture.
This 3D print presents an expanded version of the same dataset that underlies our Circle of Willis 3D print derived from careful segmentation of angiographic data. Like our Circle of Willis print, this model demonstrates the internal carotid and vertebral arteries entering the skull, branching into the intracranial arteries that supply the brain. This more expanded 3D print of the internal carotid and vertebral artery and their branches, inclusive of the Circle of Willis, displays the full branching pattern of the cerebral and cerebellar arteries. This includes the pericallosal arteries (from the anterior cerebrals) with its named branches, the superior and inferior divisions of the middle cerebral (including sulcal, temporal, and parietal arteries), and the posterior cerebral artery branches. The ophthalmic artery can also be seen as the first intracranial branch of the internal carotid artery entering the optic canal.
