    Virtual reality (VR) is becoming a serious candidate for a learning environment for complex skills like vascular interventions. The diagnostics, dimensioning and insertion of the endograft stent has been modelled as a decision-making process and now faces its implementation in a VR learning space. Beyond the topological and morphological aspects it is the orientation and navigation in earlier-performed successful interventions that offer the opportunity for a competence-based learning process before the candidate surgeon enters the clinical stage.
