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 displays the orbital contents and its close relations as viewed from the medial perspective when the majority of the lateral wall of the nasal cavity and the intervening ethmoidal sinuses have been removed. The posterior ethmoidal nerve (PEN) (a branch of the nasociliary nerve, CN V1) can be seen passing between the medial rectus (MR) inferiorly and the superior oblique muscle superiorly. A small piece of the orbital plate of the ethmoid bone (EB) has been retained to illustrate its path as it enters the posterior ethmoidal foramen. Other structures visible include the frontal nerve (FN), the sphenoid sinus (SS), the pituitary gland (PG) and the frontal sinus mucosal lining exposed after removal of the orbital plate of the frontal bone on the anterior roof of the orbit. The internal carotid and optic nerve are also visible within the cranium.
