Ex-vivo animal models have proved to be useful in the training of various other well-established endoscopic procedures, such as endoscopic haemostasis, endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and endoscopic submucosal dissection.6 The evidence shows training on animal models improves procedural skill, aids the application of endoscopic techniques in clinical practice and increases confidence within trainees.6 Furthermore, 1-day training courses on an ex-vivo animal model have been shown to improve endoscopic resection skill, insertion of stents and application of over-the-scope (OVESCO) clips.7
