Simbionix USA Corp.

Cleveland, OH, 44106

Press release date: June 18, 2014


The transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) procedure is an advanced echocardiography assessment with a specialized probe that allows main sections of the heart and great vessels to be clearly demonstrated from the esophagus. This procedure is safe when properly conducted, but in rare circumstances it can cause serious and even fatal complications.

That is why Simbionix USA Corporation, the world's leading provider of medical simulators, is pleased to present its new TEE modulefor the U/S Mentor™. This simulated procedure provides training in the evaluation of native valve diseases, prosthetic valve dysfunction, congenital or acquired heart diseases such as atrial fibrillations, coronary thromboses, coronary stenoses and more.

Guided step-by-step procedural tasks for standard views acquisition include anatomy recognition and cover the entire protocol including the mid esophageal, upper esophageal, transgastric and deep transgastric regions.

This TEE module helps learners avoid inaccurate acquisition and interpretation of images that can lead to improper clinical decisions, all the while providing experience to operators who are essential to the success of the procedure.

The module's clinical cases present realistic scenarios with increasing diagnostic complexity. Severity customization of the abnormal findings offers users of varied experience levels the opportunity to practice without patient participation.

"Simbionix strives to increase patient safety by providing trainees with solutions to refine their skills and diagnostic sensibilities even before they set foot in the operating room," said Mr. Gary Zamler, the company's CEO. "Using this realistic module will also benefit trainees by allowing them to practice a diversity of pathological conditions and diagnostic complexity."

Stop by Simbionix booth #912 at ASE in Portland, Oregon, June 21-23, for a hands-on experience of the U/S Mentor advanced training simulator for ultrasound related examinations.

Simbionix USA Corporation [ is the world's leading provider of simulation, training and education products for medical professionals and the healthcare industry.
