Fellows in interventional cardiology, who already possess elementary skills in angiography and angioplasty, will find Mentice Coronary Intermediate an invaluable tool for further development.
The software guides the user through critical steps of treating Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI), Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) and Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO). Successful interventions do not only require interventionalists to be proficient in every step of the intervention, but also to know when to use which technique and taking appropriate and critical decisions during challenging procedures.
Designed by clinical experts, the case selection builds up the user’s proficiency in handling a variety of case scenarios of different difficulty. To maximize user interaction, each scenario can be modified in real time via the Mentice Proctor app to achieve limitless flexibility as well as to trigger live complications.
