Mentice VIST(TM) New and Enhanced Carotid and Coronary Training Modules Take Medical Simulation Training to the Next Level
Date:12/1/2008

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, December 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Mentice proudly announces the launch of two new products for endovascular simulation training - the Mentice VIST 7.7 enhanced training modules for Carotid and Coronary interventions. New features such as vital signs, complications, medication management and measurement functionality add to the clinical realism and enhance the educational value of simulation training.

"Features like vital signs and complications imply a dynamic patient representation which requires further decision making, planning and patient interactions," said Goran Malmberg, President/CEO of Mentice.

"On top of the new functionalities, we are launching new anatomical content and further training alternatives such as CTO (Chronic Total Occlusion) lesions and cases that enable transradial access," Malmberg continues. "This launch truly shows that Mentice continues to be a driver of the medical simulation market and it further strengthens our position as a leader in the field of endovascular simulation training."

With the launch of the VIST 7.7 training modules Mentice adds to the already wide range of training opportunities for Carotid and Coronary interventions - all together a total of 42 patient cases. A summary of the new features are presented below.

Vital signs - All cases have vital signs recognition and response.

Complications - A select number of cases include complications that will occur as a result of user actions. One example, engaging a catheter too deeply into an ostium may result in vascular spasm.

Medication management - Medication administration is included to manage the complications the trainees encounter. One example of this would be the injection of Nitroglycerin for treatment of a spasm.

Measurement functionality - New measurement functionality has been added to allow the users to easily measure the diameters and length of lesions, reference vessels, etc - adding additional realism to the equipment selection process.
