This module allows physicians (Neuro Radiologists, Endovascular Neuro Surgeons, Endovascular Neurologists) to practice endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke in which a mechanical thrombectomy device (stent retriever)  is used to remove the clot.

The pathophysiological basis for an acute ischemic stroke begins with the occlusion of an intracranial vessel either by an embolus or a local thrombus, reducing blood flow to the downstream brain region. In the first 3-4.5 hours after the occurrence of the stroke, patients receive intravenous drug therapy (thrombolytic agent) such as tPA to dissolve the clot.

In patients who have either failed IV tPA therapy or who are either ineligible for or have contraindications to IV tPA use, an endovascular procedure with neuro thrombectomy device is performed to retrieve the clot.


Simulated Procedural Steps:

  • Perform diagnostic angiography to locate the clot
  • Pass a microcatheter beyond the clot to assess the location of the clot distal end
  • Position and deploy a stent retriever beyond the clot
  • Extract the clot while performing aspiration and inflating a balloon guide catheter.





The module provides hands-on training for advanced percutaneous coronary interventions, presenting a selection of complex patient pathologies and scenarios, including Coronary Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO), Coronary Bifurcation Lesions, Coronary Left Main Lesions and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft.

This innovative module consists of a variety of cases and provides cases with anatomical variations such as: different heart orientations, different annulus sizes, different calcification levels of the valve, and different degrees of left ventricular hypertrophy.

The module also provides an opportunity to practice on possible complications such as: left ventricle perforation, bioprosthesis pop up during the deployment, and low implementation of the bioprosthesis causing reregulation.

The module consists of 8 different cases:

Case 1-5, 7 and 8 are performed via the common femoral approach.

Case 6 is performed via the subclavian approach.

The module includes:

  • Adapting an implantation strategy in order to deal with potential complications that might occur during the simulated cases such as:
    • Pericardial effusion – The user can learn how to identify pericardial effusion by looking at the vital signs, checking the Echo or injecting contrast from the pigtail catheter. Once identified, the user can treat it by using medication.
    • Bioprosthesis pop up – Due to low implantation, the valve pops up. The user needs to decide whether to remove the valve out of the patient’s body or to advance it towards the LV
    • Low implementation of bioprosthesis – The valve might slip towards the left ventricle. This complication can be treated by Balloon inflation, Snaring (using snaring catheter and wire), or implanting an additional valve in the correct location.
  • Practicing on selecting the recommended sizes for different devices and recommended projection for the bioprosthesis deployment.

At the beginning of these cases, the user has the option of starting the procedure with puncturing the access site based on the following criteria:

  • Pigtail loop distance from femoral bifurcation
  • Puncture site within 1 mm from artery center
  • Angle from artery




This innovative module allows physicians to practice repairing the atrial septum of the heart in patients who suffer from Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) and Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO).

It consists of a variety of cases and provides different pathology of ASD and PFO pathologies such as: long tunnel PFO, thick septum secundum PFO, hypermobile atrial septum with PFO, and ASD with deficient aortic rim.

The module also provides an opportunity to practice:

  • Measuring the ASD/PFO pathology with an inflation balloon in order to select the proper size of the occluder device.
  • Navigating inside the internal structures of the heart with an ICE (Intra Cardiac Echocardiography) handle or TEE (Trans Esophageal Echocardiography) in order to find the ASD/PFO tunnel and treat it with the occluder.
  • Activating Doppler and detecting the blood flow inside the heart and through the pathology.
  • Deploying the device in order to fix the defect.
  • Retrieving a deployed device.
