Aortic Valve Implantation

Hands-on training for transcatheter aortic valve implantation

learn more
This learning module is designed for:
Interventional cardiologists

Mentice Aortic Valve Implantation is designed for interventional cardiologists and cardiac/cardiothoracic surgeons who wish to start training on transcatheter aortic valve implantation/replacement (TAVI/TAVR). The module allows for safe and cost-effective training, for individual instruction or as part of a hospital quality improvement or change-of-process program. This module assumes familiarity with preoperative CT imaging, echocardiography and extensive experience with endovascular intervention and cardiac catheterization. Both balloon-expandable and self-expandable valve types are supported, which facilitates a discussion on pros and cons, as well as to understand the differences in deployment technique.

The stepwise approach, where each step of the procedure is carried out in a safe simulated environment, prepares the training physician to meet unexpected events in the operating room.

Features & Benefits

Key Benefits

Covers all procedural steps of TAVI in a risk-free environment

Teaches patient selection and pre-operative planning

Allows use of real life-like delivery systems

Different valve types can be implanted

Features & Benefits

•Step-by-step training combined with tactile feedback to the operator

•Balloon-expandable and self-expandable valve types

•Possibility to use up to 24F deployment systems

•Interactive hemodynamics and vital signs

•Measurement and reports on valve positions during and after intervention

•Augmented visualization of cusps and annulus

•Visual cues for correct valve deployment

•Possibility to fast forward steps of the procedure to focus on specific aspects of the procedure

•Support for VIST® H1 wireless generic handle

•Together with a VIST® G5 extension, bifemoral access for added realism

Training Objectives

• Understand femoral access limitations with large devices

• Safely cross the aortic valve with wire and deployment system

• Use flexion of delivery system for navigating the aortic arch and positioning the valve

• Examine annulus location and plane

• Demonstrate optimal positioning of valve based on anatomy and valve type

• Perform a careful and appropriate deployment of valve

• Deploy balloon-expandable valves and self-expandable valves and consider differences

• Prevent occlusion of the coronary arteries
