This hybrid OR combines features of a comprehensive angiography suite and formal OR with a built-in real-time imaging unit for high quality, low-dose X-ray. With the hybrid OR’s unique design, physicians are performing a variety of cardiac and vascular procedures – including transcatheter aortic valve replacement and aortic aneurysm repairs with enhanced patient safety aspects for best outcomes. The imaging unit provides detailed viewing for best placement of valves and vascular grafts to improve accuracy and outcomes, including a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery.
