The Simbionix ANGIO Mentor [http://simbionix.com/simulators/angio-mentor/platforms-2 ] is an innovative virtual reality training simulator, which provides hands-on practice in a simulated environment for endovascular procedures. This multidisciplinary system provides a training solution for a variety of endovascular procedures. An ever-expanding library of modules [http://simbionix.com/simulators/angio-mentor/library-of-modules ] supports the acquisition and honing of procedural skills to build confidence and proficiency in various endovascular techniques and procedures.

Nowadays, endovascular basic skills and techniques can be practiced using flow models, animals, or on a real patient.

The Endovascular Basic Skills module [http://simbionix.com/simulators/angio-mentor/library-of-modules/basic-skills ] is intended for residents or fellows who wish to acquire essential wire-catheter and imaging skills. It is set in a game-like environment and will allow training in a user friendly, enjoyable and safe setting. This is the first time that physicians will have the opportunity to learn and practice on both a non-anatomical and on an anatomical vascular model, in an interactive and challenging setting. This module is relevant for the following disciplines: Vascular Surgery, Interventional Radiology, Interventional Cardiology, Interventional Neuroradiology, Neuro Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery and Trauma.

"The basic skills module allows us to teach the essential technical skills required across all endovascular intervention practice without compromising patient safety. It enables the resident or fellow to train independently in his free time, repeating the task as necessary to improve his assessment results. The teaching physician can then use the data provided by the system to assess the trainee and generate his learning curve over time, as well as compare him to a cohort of his peers", stated Jean Bismuth, M.D., Assistant Professor and a leading vascular surgeon at the Methodist DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center, Methodist Hospital, Houston, Texas.
