Sharing a single plaque-type base, three models illustrate kidney anatomy and detail its filtration mechanism. The first model shows a frontally-sectioned kidney and adrenal 3 times life-size to clearly depict its cortex, medulla, pyramids, renal pelvis and blood vessels.
This three-dimensional model of the male urinary system and its blood supply is freestanding, enabling study from all aspects. Made of unbreakable vinyl polymer, the larger than life replica illustrates: 1) the kidneys, adrenals and blood vessels • 2) a section of the pelvic bones with pubic symphysis, lower portion of the bladder and prostate • 3) the upper portion of the bladder and prostate. Flexible plastic tubing represents the ureters. 50 hand-numbered features correspond with those on the accompanying reproducible illustrated black line copy master. Identification key is printed on the flip side - lets you produce study/quiz sheets with or without answers.
Designed to educate patients about kidney stones and urinary stones, this life-size, opened right kidney includes the renal calices, renal pelvis, and ureter, which are also opened to facilitate viewing of stones in the following areas: the renal pyramids • the origin of the upper calyx group • the renal cortex • the connecting tubule of the lower calyx group • and the ureter. The base of the model contains four color illustrations of various kidney stones.
Three vinyl-plastic models on a single base consist of: The right kidney scaled to three times life-size and sectioned open • A wedge of the kidney magnified approximately 120 times to show two nephrons with glomeruli and tubules • A single glomerulus magnified approximately 700 diameters showing Bowman’s capsule, afferent and efferent arterioles and capillaries
This highly detailed model is greatly magnified to show the morphologic/functional units of the kidney. Containing six model zones, the following fine tissue structures, which serve in urine production, are featured: longitudinal section of a kidney • section of renal cortex and renal medulla • wedgeshaped kidney lobe section containing three nephrons with Henle’s loops of different lengths and vascular supply • nephron with a short Henle’s loop, along with vascular supply • opened renal corpuscle with nephron, along with transverse sections of the proximal, attenuated, and distal segments of a renal tubule • opened renal corpuscle.
