Deborah’s Hybrid Operating Room is a 1,000 sq. ft. operating suite where Deborah’s skilled cardiac and vascular surgeons and interventional cardiologists work side-by-side for blended procedures combining the two disciplines. This team is joined with echocardiography and anesthesia professionals to offer minimally-invasive approaches to challenging cardiovascular procedures.
The Hybrid OR features a 3-station computer system for continuous monitoring of a patient’s hemodynamics. Real-time imaging delivered through the Hybrid Operating Room’s robotic Siemens Artis zeego® multi-axis angiography system permits integration with various diagnostic modalities to drive complex analysis of data and increase both the precision and safety of cardiovascular procedures.
A variety of procedures are being performed in the new Hybrid OR, including:
* Transcatheter and transapical aortic value replacement
* Carotid stenting
* Subclavian angioplasty
* Endovascular repair of thoracic aortic aneurysms
* Endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms
Patients who are considered for Hybrid OR procedures will be thoroughly evaluated for suitability based on strict clinical criteria, including exclusion from other surgical or interventional options and meeting inclusionary criteria for hybrid procedures.
