This is the replaceable single-use penrose drain element from the Laparo FLS Compatible 2 module.
The FLS compatible Penrose Drain module is designed to satisfy the needs of the FLS test. It was designed to help students demonstrate their skills in suturing intracorporeal and extracorporeal knots. In our version of this module the principle remains similar although our module features a more realistic silicone skin insert for improved fidelity.
About the FLS Exam
In 1997, the American College of Surgeons (ACS), in collaboration with the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), were the first to introduce the standard for the basics of laparoscopic surgery. Thanks to the joint efforts and willingness to improve the quality of skills of future laparoscopic surgeons, a set of training materials and standards were created in North America. To prepare for the exam students have to train manual skills, hand-eye coordination, decision making and acting in accordance with established laparoscopic procedures.
