Aortic Valve Implantation

Hands-on training for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI/TAVR)

Learn more >

 

 

Mentice Aortic Valve Implantation is designed for interventional cardiologists and cardiac/cardiothoracic surgeons who wish to start training on transcatheter aortic valve implantation/replacement (TAVI/TAVR). The module allows for safe and cost-effective training, either for individual instruction or as part of a hospital quality improvement or change-of-process program.

This module assumes familiarity with preoperative CT imaging, echocardiography and extensive experience with endovascular intervention and cardiac catheterization. Both balloon-expandable and self-expandable valve types are supported, which facilitates a discussion on pros and cons, as well as to understand the differences in deployment technique.

The stepwise approach, where each step of the procedure is carried out in a safe simulated environment, prepares the trainee to meet unexpected events in the operating room.
