JONGH COBO, Enrique; PEREIRA BORGES, Franklin R y PEREIRA RIVERON, Ramiro. Simulating model for training in neuroendoscopy and neuroanatomy. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2005, vol.44, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-2945.
An auxiliary simulating model for teaching ends is presented. It is ideal for the training of neuroendoscopic techniques in the laboratory (in the case of residents and young specialists in Neurosurgery) and also for studying the anatomy of the ventriculocisternal encephalic system (for medical students and other health areas). It is made of brains from corpses previously prepared with formol and wrapped up in nylon bags that simulate the dura mater. Then, they are installed in the crania, cut approximately 3 cm over the nasion and up to 3 cm above the external occipital protuberance. The endoscopy is introduced by the habitual routes and anatomical observations can be made, or operations can be simulated. The models may be prepared by the own users and they present an environment very similar to that of the real operations
