Mastering the Complexities of Surgical Training: Weber B Fractures
The use of fibular nails is an effective treatment option for unstable ankle fractures. While a common choice of treatment, the training for using fibular nails to repair Weber B fractures can be challenging and expensive when utilizing cadaveric specimens.
The question arises, how can surgeons best train for this procedure effectively and efficiently?
The answer is simple, by using a customized synthetic model that can perfectly replicate the pathology associated with this condition.
When a customer reached out to SurgiSTUD for assistance due to the added cost and logistics of cadaver-based training for this procedure, we created a solution just for them.
The custom model we built mimicked a Weber B fracture in the ankle. We included options for medial malleolus fracture as well as peroneus longus, peroneus brevis, and retinacular soft tissues to improve the realism and depth of surgical training.
In the end, the customer was able to eliminate the many costs and problems associated with cadaver-based training while improving the overall quality of education.
