    Default Colorado State University Develops Artificial Tissue for Surgery Practice!!!!

    An invention by Colorado State University veterinarians provides students with artificial body parts that look, feel, and even bleed just like real tissue.

    Medical experts at CSU say that in the last 50 years, modern medicine has made astounding advances in surgery, yet many of today’s veterinary and human medicine students still hone basic surgical and suturing skills on carpet pads and pig’s feet before transitioning to a live patient.
    Well, that's all changed now thanks to this new invention that simulates real tissue.

    Dr. Dean Hendrickson, a veterinarian and director of CSU’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital and one of the inventors, says the artificial replicas of sections of human and animal bodies -- such as an abdominal wall -- gives students a realistic learning environment that will bridge the gap between classroom lectures and procedures such as surgical cuts and sutures on real human or animal patients.

    The artificial tissues consist of layers of silicone that closely simulate skin, connective tissue and muscle. built into the silicone are realistically placed and sized “blood vessels” that are connected to an artificial blood source that supplies the tissue with realistic bleeding, so when students practice suturing they will experience blood coming into a wound or incision from both sides of the tissue. Hendrickson says this will help reduce the amout of stress when it comes to performing the real thing.

    The creators are working with CSU Ventures to identify investors and partners to advance development of the model for teaching animal and human medicine. CSU Ventures is a subsidiary corporation of the Colorado State University Research Foundation, a private, non-profit foundation that helps the university move technologies from the university into the commercial sector. The foundation has filed a provisional patent for the technology.
    Colorado State University’s Animal Teaching Hospital is part of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
