The Hearts in Hand Collection (USA)
"The Hearts in Hand Collection at the University of Colorado, a library of physical heart models in a variety of structural disease states, allows physicians to gain a quick and thorough understanding of spatial relationships and practice catheter pathways and device selection prior to conducting minimally invasive interventions. Based on patient hearts, the Collection provides physicians and their teams with hands-on training tools to help them plan for safer and more efficient structural heart disease interventions. Each model is individually made with one of the highest resolution rapid prototyping technologies on the market. Due to the anatomical complexity of the human heart and structural heart disease, each model is constructed and meticulously detailed"
