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 of a dissected and opened cranial cavity displays the dural folds and dural venous sinuses, including the falx cerebri (preserved by a retained midsagittal portion of the calvaria. The intact tentorium cerebelli demonstrates the tentorial notch which normally houses the midbrain. Across the dural folds the following sinuses are visible (light blue coloring): superior sagittal sinus, inferior sagittal sinus, straight sinus, transverse sinuses, superior and inferior petrosal sinuses, sphenoparietal sinuses and the cavernous sinuses. In the region of the sella turcica, the entry of the carotid arteries to the cranial cavity through the roof of the cavernous sinuses is also visible.
