Stenting is a routine procedure in most hospitals and indications are increasing for stent insertion in the esophagus, and various other parts of the GI tract. The number of available “indication-related expandable stents” is rising accordingly. Keeping abreast of new surgical technologies is one of the most challenging aspects of medicine today and as with any other procedure, exhaustive training in stenting is essential for both doctors and perioperative nurses to promote optimal patient outcome.
The TD-box is designed for the training of all steps involved in most forms of upper GI stenting. Naturally, stenting is performed within the body. Utilizing the transparent cover of the TD-Box with dry lab exercises augments comprehension of this procedure.
