Prostatic Artery Embolization

Hands-on training for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

learn more
This learning module is designed for:
Senior interventional radiologists
Proctoring physicians

PAE is a challenging novel procedure with a steep learning curve – requiring highly developed microcatheter and microwire skills and knowledge of the highly variant anatomy to avoid potentially adverse outcomes.

Training options are limited and based on presentations and live cases, offering no hands-on experience. With a sizeable proportion of men suffering from clinically significant BPH, hospitals and teaching facilities need to examine their training capabilities for this demanding procedure.

Mentice PAE software offers experienced interventional radiologists (IRs) the ability to train through hands-on simulated training. With fully guided cases providing hints, tips, and tricks from leading experts, IRs can complement their training through simulation – helping to build the confidence level needed to perform the procedure safely on actual patients.

Based on real patient anatomies, all training material has been derived from actual case data and histories and designed in collaboration with two of the world’s leading physicians in the field: Dr. Marc Sapoval and Dr. Shivank Bhatia.

Mentice’s PAE software is the world’s first simulation software and is already being used by hospitals, societies and medical device companies globally.
