Interesting summary from ESMINT 2016. We had the chance to host a hospitality suite at the annual European Society of Minimally Invasive Neurological Therapy.
The Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College London has turned simulation-based training in vascular and endovascular procedures into a weekly practice. Every Friday afternoon, personnel from the vascular medical staff at all levels participate in a mandatory course, held by Clinical Senior Lecturer and Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Colin Bicknell.
The European Society of Minimally Invasive Neurological Therapies, ESMINT, is an important date on the calendar for INR clinicians, also for countries from outside Europe.
We are very pleased to once again be an integral part in the upcoming CIRSE Congress to be held in Barcelona September 10-14th.
Mentice will be part of the Scientific Program in the hands on Principles to Practice: education and simulation skills training.
A couple of weeks ago, Mentice participated at EuroPCR in Paris. It is the leading annual conference in interventional cardiovascular medicine in Europe. Interventional physicians across cardiology, radiology and neurology, along with experts from medtech companies, come together to this impressive event.
Did you know that when a stroke occurs, around 1.9 million neurons die per minute? Stroke requires emergency treatment and cannot be planned in advance. The emergency team needs to act fast. In this blog post, I will discuss endovascular management of stroke and how emergency teams can safely train for interventional clot extraction.
Mentice has received a grant from the Swedish government agency for innovation, Vinnova, to develop a simulation-based training system including validated metrics capable of assessing proficiency in treatment of acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
Mentice was proud to be part of the hugely successful GEST (Global Embolisation Cancer Symposium Technologies) event in New York, May 5-8 this year. It was a very interesting and valuable symposium for Mentice as a first time exhibitor, with very passionate and professional participants visiting our booth and our presentations.
