Coronary Advanced

Building proficiency in complex coronary interventions

Learn more >



Coronary Advanced is the third and most innovative product in the new comprehensive coronary intervention training platform. This software assumes familiarity within 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.

In 15-20% of all PCI’s, coronary bifurcations are involved. These lesions remain one of the most challenging situations in interventional cardiology. The European Bifurcation Club (EBC), one of the most respected bodies in this field, continuously issue recommendations for the treatment of bifurcation lesions. Coronary Advanced is unique in the market as it is based on these recommendations and guides the user step-by-step through different cases to understand and select the optimal treatment and to perfect technical skills in these highly complex procedures.

Furthermore, Coronary Advanced prepares interventional cardiologists and their teams 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 lifesaving situations in real life.
