This unique and highly-realistic platform was designed by clinical experts and is in accordance with the recommendations of the European Bifurcation Club (EBC), one of the most respected bodies in this field.
Coronary Advanced is the third product in our comprehensive coronary intervention training platform. This software assumes familiarity with the basics of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI), as well as PCI for Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) and Chronical Total Occlusion (CTO) from both Coronary Essentials and Intermediate.
This software helps interventional cardiologists and their teams prepare for the growing number of high-risk patients and challenging procedures, not only in bifurcation lesions but also in technically and cognitively complex PCIs for STEMI (ST-elevation myocardial infarction) and CTOs - ensuring operators are proficient and confident before facing these critical and life-saving situations in real life.
In 15-20% of all PCI's, coronary bifurcations are involved and are one of the most challenging situations in interventional cardiology.
12 Interactive Cases:
The only simulation training for bifurcation, allowing users to handle 2 wires/balloons/stents at the same time for realistic training on complex lesions.
Includes kissing balloon, jailed wire, POT, TAP, Culotte, and DK-crush techniques.
IVUS & OCT intravascular imaging helps users assess lesions to support and guide decision-making in challenging cases.
Built in step-by-step expert guidance in all cases encourages self-learning without the need for proctoring.
Physiology modalities FFR & RFR allow users to investigate lesions and interpret pressure curves to help plan treatment strategies.
Visual guidance helps to understand the optimal positioning of devices within bifurcation lesions.
Companion proctor app for iPad provides the ability to customize scenarios and trigger real-time complications for case expansion & increased interaction between proctor and trainees.
Subintimal and retrograde CTO scenarios help users understand effective crossing strategy changes to increase procedural success.
Detailed metrics and benchmarking tools allow users to track progress to help optimize training and identify areas that need improvement.
Challenging AMI scenarios include LM and MVD cases that teach life-saving clinical decision-making and facilitate teamwork.
It is highly recommended that all operators treating bifurcations in the coronary tree integrate high-fidelity endovascular simulation such as the VIST® G7+ platform into their practice allowing them to mimic real-life scenarios in bifurcation stenting and enabling them to explore technical issues while applying tips and tricks they have accumulated over years of practice.
