Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a low-cost, simple simulation model of major vascular injury repair for cardiothoracic trainees. This model uses commercially available orthopedic elastic bands to allow repetitive practice of the skills necessary during these rare but critical clinical scenarios. Practicing core skills in the simulation setting will help residents be better prepared when the situation arises.
