During April, Simbionix has presented its new developments both for the ANGIO Mentor and the LAP Mentor simulators.

After a successful launching in the US with more than 30 systems sold, The ANGIO Mentor was presented for the first time in Europe during the Chairing Cross at the Imperial College, London, UK.

The carotid intervention and the new renal intervention modules received warm praises from the physicians in the meeting.

On April 13th, during SAGES 2005 in Florida, USA, Simbionix presented a prototype of the LAP Mentor' suturing module.

Physicians who have tried the suturing module were impressed with both the thread and the environment simulation, which they found extremely promising.
