This skull model is a cast of a real human children‘s skull specimen and shows all anatomical structures in great detail. It was developed for students of anatomy, medicine, surgery, ENT medicine, ophthalmology and dentistry. The skull is complexly cut and joined together with metal and magnetic connections.
The top of the skull is open and removable. Bony impressions of the sinus sagittalis, the sinus transversus and the sinus sigmoideus as well as the meninges are painted. The base of the skull is cut sagittally in such a way that the cut runs through a sieve plate on one side and another cut with the same plane through the other sieve plate of the ethmoid bone, which leaves the Christa galli and the perpendicular plate as well as the entire nasal septum intact. The structures of the anterior, middle and posterior fossa are easily accessible. One can see the nasal cavity, the turbinate, the septum and the bony and nasopharynx directly. The nasal septum can be removed from the surrounding bone structures. The removable temporal bone shows a complete external auditory canal.
The upper jaw and the lower jaw show the structures of the teeth, the roots, the bony edge of the alveolar process as well as dental nerves and vessels. The maxillary sinus can be opened by removing a flap. The teeth, including the permanent teeth still embedded in the bone, can be made accessible by removing a bone flap.
