Surgical model

This surgical model is made of glass fiber and has abdominal and thoracic compartments separated. A selective bronchial intubation can be done in this model. It also has a structure that simulates a diaphragm. You can perform both laparoscopy and thoracoscopy.

The organs of a pig are placed within the model.

The model is intubated with an “orotracheal” tube
