Abstract

The Modelled Anatomical Replica for Training Young Neurosurgeons (MARTYN) has been created by the conservation team at The Royal College of Surgeons of England to simulate traumatic pathologies (such as extradural haemorrhage) and has been used with great success at relevant workshops. A modified MARTYN head has recently been developed that incorporates a vascular tree and pathology, allowing for the simulation of the keyhole supraorbital subfrontal approach.1Here we present a short validation study assessing its realism (face validity), usefulness (content validity) and ability to differentiate levels of surgical experience (construct validity).
