Vascular Anastomosis Kit Simulator Simuvasc

Specific Course Materials

Theoretical Material: The student will receive via email the accesses to the Zoom platform for videoconferences.

Vascular Anastomosis Kit Simulator: This set consists of the necessary material to carry out the practical exercises (simulations):

  • Basic vascular surgical instruments.
  • Vascular support.
  • Specific simulated vessels.
  • Vascular Sutures.

Said material will be sent to the student through the transport agency UPS.

Course Evaluation

In the last module of the course, an evaluation of technical skills will be carried out with a simulated exercise that the student will record with his smartphone / tablet.

Said video recording and the simulated vessel of the exercise will be evaluated by two expert tutors using OSATS (OPRS and EPRS Score), and the evaluation will be complemented by computational analysis.

Said evaluation will be sent via e-mail to the student.

At the end of the course, the student must fill in the course satisfaction survey through the SimuVasc website.
