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.
Shoulder - deep dissection of a right shoulder girdle, preserving a complete scapula, lateral clavicle and proximal humerus
his 3D printed specimen preserves a deep dissection of a right shoulder girdle, consisting of a complete scapula, lateral clavicle, and proximal humerus. In the anterior view, the subscapularis muscle is present but sectioned to highlight the cross-sectional thickness of the belly within the subscapular fossa. The coracoclavicular ligament and coracoacromial ligaments lie just medial to the insertions of the coracobrachialis and pectoralis minor muscles on the coracoid process of the scapula.
The insertion of the tendon of the latissimus dorsi is covered by the tendon of the long head of the biceps brachii muscle passing in the bicipital groove towards the glenohumeral joint capsule. The capsule has been opened anteriorly to expose the passage of this tendon, as well as the suprapinatus muscle (covered by the collapsed subdeltoid bursa). In the posterior view the supraspinatus muscle is preserved while the infraspinatus and teres muscles have been removed to expose the posterior glenohumeral joint capsule. The terminal insertions of the long head of the triceps brachii, infraspinatus, and teres minor muscles are all preserved.
