Advanced 3D Printed IVC Filter and Arterial Vascular Training Models




The Most Advanced Vascular Training Models for Physicians


Embodi3D has created a line of super-accurate 3D printed vascular models for physician and medical professional advanced training. Created by a board-certified physician who performs vascular procedures daily, these models were created for maximum procedural realism while being more practical and less expensive than conventional animal labs or silicone tube models. Physician specialists who utilize these models include vascular surgeons, cardiologists, and radiologists. Numerous medical device companies use these models to teach and demonstrate their devices under realistic circumstances. Hospitals and medical schools use them to teach residents, fellows and medical students how to perform vascular procedures.


To view our full product catalog with updated information please see the Vascular Training Models page. You will learn about the models shown on this page and many more.

IVC Filter - Whole Body Venous Training Model

The whole body venous medical training model includes all the major venous structures in the human body from the right jugular vein of the neck to the right and left common femoral veins at the level of the hips. The whole body venous model allows for the education and training in a variety of IVC filter related procedures. The model was created from a real CT scan so the vessel positions, diameters, and angles are all real. Entry points are present at the right jugular vein and brachiocephalic vein for upper body access, and the bilateral common femoral veins for lower body access. Attachments are present to make placement of a real vascular sheath easy.


The model can be used to teach or practice the following procedures:

  • IVC filter placement, jugular or femoral approach
  • Common iliac filter placement, jugular or femoral approach
  • IVC filter retrieval
  • Venous stenting
  • IVC and iliac vein thrombectomy or thrombolysis
  • Venous embolization
  • Hepatic vein cannulation

The model can be used to illustrate specific devices for the procedures listed above and is used by medical device companies to demonstrate and teach the use of their products. The IVC model comes in a portable carrying case and is easily transportable. It assembles and disassembles in less than 20 seconds.

Abdomen and Pelvis Arterial Embolization and Stenting Medical Model

The abdomen and pelvis embolization and stenting model has detailed arterial anatomy generated from a real CT scan, so the exact vessel shapes, diameters, and angles are all real. Numerous detailed vessel branches are included for maximum realism and for practicing extremely fine catheterization. For example, the right, middle, and left hepatic arteries are included, which are only accessible after four levels of branching (Aorta -> Celiac artery -> Common hepatic artery -> Proper hepatic artery -> Right, middle, and left hepatic arteries). Vascular sheath attachment points are present at the right and left common femoral arteries, as they would be during a real procedure. This provides an unparalleled level of realism for training in an in vitro model. It is a revolutionary training tool for interventional radiologists, cardiologists, and vascular surgeons. It is commonly used at professional training sessions, trade shows and conventions, in-hospital training sessions, and at medical schools for teaching residents and fellows. Medical device companies use the model to demonstrate and teach the use of their microcatheter, wire, and embolization products to physicians.



This medical model can be used to teach or practice the following procedures:

  • Aneurysm embolization
  • Stent assisted embolization
  • Balloon assisted embolization
