HeartWorks pathology models for both TEE and TTE have been created to facilitate the ultrasound evaluation of patients with structural and functional disturbances of the heart and lungs.

This module includes:

  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion devices
  • Lateral flexion
Pulmonary Embolism TEE
Accompanying notes on the pathology models highlight the echocardiographic features displayed. The superb interactive functionality of the HeartWorks software is retained.
HeartWorks Pathology Models
Pulmonary embolus

This model illustrates many of the echocardiographic findings associated with massive pulmonary embolism. A large thrombus is seen lodged at the bifurcation of the main pulmonary artery. The resulting pathophysiological changes are represented by a dilated, failing right ventricle and associated valve dysfunction. Typical haemodynamic and Doppler ultrasound features have been incorporated.

Pulmonary Embolism TEE
Left atrial appendage occlusion devices

These three models demonstrate left atrial appendage occlusion devices positioned within appendages of varying morphology, including unilobed, multilobed and hooked variants.

LAA Occlusion Device
Lateral flexion

The addition of TEE probe lateral flexion further elevates the capabilities of the HeartWorks system, allowing users to refine imaging planes. Lateral flexion may be controlled with on screen icons or by manually rotating the simulator probe wheel.
