PAE training made painless

Mentice Prostatic Artery Embolization (PAE) is a unique training solution designed for interventional radiologists starting to perform embolization of the prostatic artery, or who wish to maintain their advanced skills in this challenging procedure. PAE requires highly developed microcatheter and microwire skills, as well as strategic decision making to avoid potentially hazardous outcomes. The training module was designed in collaboration with two of the world’s leading physicians in the field: Dr. Marc Sapoval and Dr. Shivank Bhatia. The available patient portfolio offers guidance and best practice tips as well as a step-wise approach to reach proficiency.
The Mentice PAE training simulation module focuses on:
A guide for identifying the prostatic artery is provided, as well as guidance from experts on how and where to embolize. Essential imaging functionality such as cone beam computed tomography is available during the cases to prevent non-target embolization. Due to the long procedural and fluoroscopic time of PAE, training in the proper usage of imaging equipment, and working according to the ALARA (as low as reasonable achievable) principle is an integral part of the training module.
All the above can be learned in a safe environment, without risk of complications and radiation exposure. Extensive metrics and measurements are collected throughout the training cases. These provide the user with a performance result that can be used to chart personal progress, or as a comparison to an expert reference.
The Mentice PAE training simulation module is an ideal platform for:
