Carotid-Intervention

Hands-on training for carotid artery stenting – CAS

learn more
This learning module is designed for:
Interventional neuroradiologists

CAS is a technically complex endovascular procedure that is associated with a distinct learning curve. The module provides tools and strategies for improving procedural outcomes. Staged training for a variety of anatomies and lesion positions include hostile necks, high lesions and cases of radiation induced stenoses. Simulator training allows the learner to gain a thorough hands-on understanding of this high-risk procedure, without any risk to the patient.

The technical and cognitive aspects can be learned and objectively assessed in a risk-free environment. The training includes a large number of different cases with varying anatomies and all main aortic arch types are represented. Cases for more advanced learners also include baroreceptor responses and management of dissections and spasms. Using VIST® Case-It for Carotid Intervention, you can import patient specific CT data and create your own case training library.
