Silicone models as basic training and research aid in endovascular neurointervention-a single-center experience and review of the literature


Paramasivam, Srinivasan; Baltsavias, Gerasimos; Psatha, Evlampia; Matis, Georgios; Valavanis, Anton (2014). Silicone models as basic training and research aid in endovascular neurointervention-a single-center experience and review of the literature. Neurosurgical Review, 37(2):331-337.

Abstract

The rapid development and wider use of neurointerventional procedures have increased the demand for a comprehensive training program for the trainees, in order to safely and efficiently perform these procedures. Artificial vascular models are one of the dynamic ways to train the new generation of neurointerventionists to acquire the basic skills of material handling, tool manipulation through the vasculature, and development of hand-eye coordination. Herein, the authors present their experience regarding a long-established training program and review the available literature on the advantages and disadvantages of vascular silicone model training. Additionally, they present the current research applications of silicone replicas in the neurointerventional arena.
