Renal Intervention

Hands-on training for renal angioplasty

Learn more >



Mentice Renal Intervention is designed for training of renal angiography, angioplasty and stenting. A variety of lesion locations, anatomical variations and other learning challenges are presented. Practice with this module will improve the learner’s understanding of therapeutic treatment options in patients with hemodynamically significant renal artery disease. The entire training procedure is performed in a learner focused and risk-free environment, using real clinical devices.

Renal revascularization is mostly requested to investigate renal artery stenosis, flush pulmonary edema and rapidly decreasing renal function. Renal artery angioplasty and stenting is a complex procedure—this module focuses on teaching fundamental techniques to junior fellows. Experience in all aspects of peripheral angioplasty and a familiarity with interventional devices and associated techniques is important. The module features a variety of renal lesions, anatomies, and the possibility to practice alternative access for severely angulated renal takeoffs.
