FLS Knot task trainer.
The cutting trainer is to train your suture skills with Extracorporeal & Intracorporeal in the laparoscopic environment.
The trainer include:
1 X Base plate
10 X Penrose Drain Cutting marked.
You will need to use the following items:
1x Marked penrose
Laparoscopic Forceps ø5x330mm
Laparoscopic Scissors ø5x330mm
Laparoscopic Needle Holder ø5X330mm
Simu.LooPusher – Knot Pusher
This suturing task have 2 parts: Extra & intracorporeal knots.
The Extracorporeal task requires you to place a simple stitch through two marks in a longitudinally slit Penrose drain. You are then required to tie the suture extra corporeally, using Simu.LooPusher – a knot-pushing device to slide the knot down. You must tie the knot tightly enough to close the slit in the drain.
Be careful not to avulse the drain off the plate.
At lest three square throws are required to ensure that the knot will not slip under tension.
The intracorporeal task requires you to place a suture precisely through two marks on a Penrose drain, that has been slit along its long axis.
You are then required to tie the knot using an intracorporeal knot.
You must place at least three throws that must include one double throw and two single throws on the suture.
You must also ensure the knots are square and won’t slip.
