The purpose of P.O.P
Pulsating organ perfusion was developed for the simulation of operations in minimally invasive surgical techniques. It opens up new perspectives in laparoscopy/thoracoscopy and endourological training.
P.O.P ensures patient security
Operations can be carried out under the most realistic of conditions on animal organs or organ complexes with the P.O.P simulation trainer:
- abdominal surgery (liver, gallbladder, small intestine, colon, spleen etc.)
- thoracic surgery (heart, lungs, aorta)
- urological surgery (kidney, ureter, adrenal)
- vascular surgery (aorta, arteries, veins) and
- gynecological surgery (adnexae, cysts etc.)
Functional Principle of the P.O.P Trainer
The central artery of animal organs or organ complexes is catheterized and connected to the pump of the P.O.P simulation trainer. The perfusion medium (colored tap water) in the pelvi-trainer is conveyed into the organ by the pump. The pump works with an electronically controlled frequency of approximately 65 / min and is pressure-controlled (maximum pressure approximately 140 mmHg). The organs are supported on a perforated metal grid. The perfusion fluid passes back into the simulation trainer via side branches of the arteries, veins and parenchymal lesions.

Learning of standard operations
P.O.P simulates all types of hemorrhages (parenchymatous, capillary, arterial, and venous), making it not only possible to learn standard operations, but also to master hemorrhagic complications.
Control of complications
In contrast to animal experiments, the exercises can be repeated as often as necessary and practically without time limitations.
Learning of new techniques
Furthermore, P.O.P is also highly suitable for experimenting with new techniques allowing for results to be checked immediately.
Unlimited in time and repeatable
All technologies familiar from clinical work such as high frequency (unipolar, bipolar), lasers, ultrasound dissectors, aqua dissectors etc., can be used in the P.O.P simulation trainer.
P.O.P replaces animal experiments!
Replacement – Reduction – Refinement
Previously, conducting animal experiments was the only adequate means of practicing clinical operations. However, such operations on anesthetized animals are not only costly and ethically critical, but also require a highly sophisticated infrastructure.
Due to its ideal quality of simulation, simple handling and economic efficiency, the P.O.P trainer serves to intensify surgical training, while it significantly decreases the number of animal experiments.
