Hands-on training for peripheral angioplasty

This learning module is designed for:
Interventional radiologists

Mentice Iliac/SFA Intervention designed for physicians and medical professionals to learn the fundamental interventional skills specific to peripheral artery diseases—extending from the iliac arteries through the superficial femoral artery and down to the popliteal artery. The module provides essential training in a learner-focused, risk-free environment.

The iliac and femoral arteries represent one of the earliest vascular beds to be addressed by residents and fellows in image-guided interventional therapies. The module offers an introduction to image-guided interventions in the peripheral arteries.

Procedural steps, the use of clinical devices and their associated risks, hands-on device manipulation skills, and complication management can all be learned, demonstrated, and assessed within the module. Combinations of access strategies to the iliac arteries and femoral lesions are available.
