Mentice Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) is designed for physicians and medical professionals engaged in endovascular management of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms (TAAs). Training of this advanced procedure on a simulator builds a thorough understanding of hands-on TAA treatment. The Mentice TEVAR module comes with an accompanying CT data set for complementary training of technical aspects, sizing and planning of the procedure. The module supports VIST® Case-It, which allows end users to import real cases from anonymous DICOM data.
Accurate measurement and feedback on graft positioning, in combination with tactile feedback, advances the trainee’s understanding of 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. Together with a VIST® G5 extension, the module can be run with bifemoral access to further enhance training realism.

The ability to remotely introduce complications in real-time while trainees are performing a procedure on the Mentice simulator tremendously enhances the learning experience and brings simulation even closer to reality.
