Mentice Neurovascular Coiling is designed to teach skills essential to cerebral interventional procedures. The module facilitates technical, procedural and cognitive training and discussions in a completely risk-free environment for these delicate procedures.

The Neurovascular Coiling Module offers the opportunity to treat cerebral aneurysms of different size, shape and location prior to patient procedures and with different strategies (balloon-/stent-assisted coiling).

Psychomotor skills, patient assessment and procedural decisions may be implemented by a learner and reviewed by the instructor to optimize the training time. Using VIST® Case-It, you can even import patient specific CT data and create your own case library for training.


Key Benefits

  • Manipulate C-arm projection (incl. biplane) and magnification for assessing the aneurysm
  • Select and deploy coils with appropriate diameter and length
  • Understand the need for balloon-assistance during coiling
  • Perform the balloon remodeling technique (BRT)
  • Correctly and carefully size, deploy and cannulate stents
  • Safely perform stent-assisted coiling (SACT, trans-cell)
  • Demonstrate safe device manipulation inside the aneurysm and managing related complications
  • Understand and handle complications during distal access in tortuous cerebral anatomy
  • Experience filling resistance of the aneurysm via microcatheter behavior
  • Manage stent related complications during coiling
