Mentice Endovascular Aortic Repair (EVAR) is designed for physicians and medical professionals involved in learning endovascular management of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAAs). The module facilitates training of this high-risk procedure, in a learner focused and risk-free environment on a simulator in order to gain a thorough understanding of the prerequisites for AAA treatment.
The EVAR module provides essential procedural and technical skills training, and features staged training that ranges from basic cases to more complex ones with highly angulated necks and aortoiliac aneurysms and ruptured aneurysms. With the optional VIST® G5 extension, all cases run with full bifemoral access.
Original CT data, from which the cases have been modeled, are available with the module to allow for segmentation and planning on a workstation of your choice. Using VIST® Case-It for EVAR, you can even import patient specific CT data and create your own case library for training.

The ability to remotely introduce complications in real-time while trainees are performing a procedure on the Mentice simulator tremendously enhances the learning experience and brings simulation even closer to reality.
