Mentice Iliac/SFA Intervention is designed for physicians and medical professionals to learn the fundamental interventional skills specific to peripheral artery diseases—extending from the iliac arteries through the superficial femoral artery and down to the popliteal artery. The module provides essential training in a learner-focused, risk-free environment.
The iliac and femoral arteries represent one of the earliest vascular beds to be addressed by endovascular residents and fellows—this module offers an introduction to endovascular intervention in the peripheral arteries.
Procedural steps, use of clinical devices with its associated risks, hands-on device manipulation skills and complication management can all be learned, demonstrated and assessed within the module.Combinations of access strategies to the iliac arteries as well as for femoral lesions are available.

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.
