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).
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, and shorter length of stay, which leads to reduced hospital costs.
Our solution aims at supporting interventionalists to become equally proficient and confident with TRA - making it a more adopted approach in their daily practice.Brochure
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 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.
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.
Companion proctor app for iPad provides the ability to customize scenarios and trigger real-time complications for case expansion & increased interaction between proctor and trainees.
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.
Complementary e-learning Transradial Approach module, featuring instructive video tutorials, quizzes, and a final knowledge test, to familiarize with all aspects of TRA. Available in the Mentice Live Learning Center.
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.
