The operation simulator with pulsatile organ perfusion ("POP trainer") simulates the blood supply of organs or organ complexes and was developed for the training in both minimally invasive and conventional surgery. With the redesigned new POP-trainer, even complex operations, such as colorectal and antireflux procedures can be practised. Due to perfect quality of simulation, simple handling and economic aspects, the POP trainer serves to intensify the training of surgeons, simultaneously decreasing the number of animal experiments.
