Heart models & vascular system
In our selection of heart models, you can choose between models that are reduced, made in life size or enlarged. There are also heart models with the impulse conduction system, models with the result after a bypass operation (CABG / coronary bypass), models with a focus on the heart valves and models with surrounding organs (eg esophagus and trachea). We also have special hearts in the form of a fetal heart and a heart with left ventricular hypertrophy.
Cardiac models are used in particular to understand the anatomy of the heart as well as clinical aspects such as diseases, examinations and treatment.
Anatomically, the heart encompasses many structures. With a heart model in hand, one can study the atria and ventricles (atria and ventricles) with details such as papillary muscles, AV and pouch valves (eg aortic valve), foramen ovale and sinus coronarius. Furthermore, some models include the impulse conduction system (the electrical conduction system in the heart) with important structures such as the sinus node, the AV node (atrioventricular node), and the crus dextrum and sinus.
As for blood vessels, one can also more easily distinguish between the coronary circulation and the large, central vessels. One can, for example, study RCA, LAD and CX as well as the aorta (body artery), truncus pulmonalis (pulmonary artery / pulmonary artery) and vv. pulmonales (pulmonary veins).
Clinically, a cardiac model can be used to understand quite a number of diseases in the different tissues / structures of the heart. This can be, for example, inflammation of the heart (pericarditis, myocarditis or endocarditis) or diseases of the valve systems (eg narrowed aortic valve / aortic stenosis or leaky mitral valve / mitral insufficiency).
In terms of examinations and treatment, cardiac models can be used to understand KAG, PCI (balloon dilation) as well as ultrasound scanning / ECO, bypass surgery (CABG / coronary bypass) and radiofrequency ablation.
In our selection of models that show the vascular system (blood circulation / cardiovascular system), you will find a vascular model that shows atherosclerosis (atherosclerosis) in arteries / arteries as well as a complete model of the entire vascular system.
See also our very detailed model with arteries and a vein that has been enlarged 14 times.
