Mentice Renal Denervation is designed for the fields of interventional cardiology and radiology, for those who want to learn or teach the steps to treat resistant hypertension. A modern renal denervation system is supported, and a variety of realistic patient scenarios and anatomies are available to prepare the user for challenges that may occur in a clinical practice setting.
This module assumes familiarity with endovascular catheterization and intervention techniques, as well as a basic understanding of RF ablation. A balloonbased ablation system is included which allows the operator to build experience with one of the most promising techniques currently available.
A highly advanced ablation model, reproducing reallife effects from wall proximity and tip cooling due to blood flow, and sophisticated 3D visualization of the exact ablated regions, provides the best training available for practicing accurate and effective delivery of renal denervation therapy.

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.
