This learning module is designed for:
Interventional radiologists
Interventional cardiologists
Vascular surgeons

Mentice Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) is designed for physicians and medical professionals engaged in image-guided interventional management of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms (TAAs). Training this advanced procedure on a simulator builds a thorough understanding of hands-on TAA treatment. The Mentice TEVAR module has an accompanying CT data set for complimentary training on technical aspects, sizing, and procedure planning. The module supports VIST® Case-It, allowing end users to import real cases from anonymous DICOM data.

Accurate measurement and feedback on graft positioning, combined with tactile feedback, advance the trainee’s understanding of the correct deployment technique. By importing real-life hospital cases from CTA or MRA, training possibilities are virtually endless, and scenarios can be added and adapted to fit custom training objectives. With a VIST® G5 extension, the module can be run with bifemoral access to enhance training realism further.
