Cadaveric aortic aneurysm creation: a life-like model for training endovascular repair
The recent decline in RAAA incidence and the fast paced scenario with associated challenges regarding training calls for initiative for a better training environment to maximize learning. This led us to the creation of a pulsatile human cadaveric RAAA model. Fresh frozen cadaver was used to create RAAA with BioTissue in hybrid suite with ability to perform CBCTA for sizing. As a proof of concept, the model was used to perform REVAR with proximal CODA balloon control. The model proved to be feasible and we believe it is a better environment to train and gain adequate proficiency in RAAA management.
