Transradial Approach

Supporting interventionalists to transition from transfemoral to transradial access

Learn more >


The first dedicated multidisciplinary solution focusing on the essential challenges associated with the radial approach, facilitating interventionalists to transition safely and effectively from transfemoral access (TFA) to transradial access (TRA).

Our solution aims at supporting interventionalists to become equally proficient and confident with TRA - making it a more adopted approach in their daily practice.

Features & Benefits

Evidence shows that TRA poses a significantly lower risk for vascular complications than transfemoral, e.g. lower bleeding and mortality, and offers other benefits such as:

  • improved patient comfort and satisfaction
  • shorter length of stay
  • reduced hospital costs

Expert Guidance

Built in step-by-step expert guidance in all cases are tailored to your specialty (IC, INR, IR) and encourages self-learning without the need for proctoring.


HapticRealism™ Technology

HapticRealism™ technology allows users to feel realistic resistance during the advancement of clinical tools to help them understand the resistance felt due to spasms, loops, or tortuosity.

Anatomical Challenges

A variety of anatomical challenges are included to give users experience with common scenarios such as full radial loop, double hairpin loop, high-origin radial artery, and radical, brachial, & subclavian tortuosity.

Handling Techniques

Supports for loops and tortuosity handling techniques, such as downsizing the tools, straightening of the loop, and balloon-assisted tracking of the catheter to familiarize users with TRA specific techniques.

Training Objectives

  • Identify resistance to movement of a guidewire and/or a catheter through the arm vasculature and understand the cause of it.
  • Identify, understand, and deal with different anatomical challenges in the radial, brachial, and subclavian regions, such as double hairpin radial loop, 360° radial loop, extreme tortuosity, high origin radial artery.
  • Familiarize with the steps to effectively and safely handle challenging loops and tortuosity, such as downsizing the tools and straightening of loops, balloon-assisted tracking of the catheter.
  • Decide and execute treatment to avoid Radial Artery Occlusion and to resolve complications, such as radial artery spasm and dissection.
  • Cannulate Right Coronary, Left Coronary, Right Common Carotid, Left Common Carotid Artery or the Descending Aorta.

TRA for neurovascular angiography and intervention will become the standard of care as it offers higher safety, comfort, and satisfaction for the patient and leads to a significant cost reduction for healthcare systems. High fidelity simulation-based training facilitates quicker transition to TRA without putting patients at risk. The Mentice Transradial Approach solution will help interventionalists become equally confident with TRA as with TFA - allowing them to make an unbiased and educated decision regarding the access site, based on the patient´s need and anatomy.
