Hybrid OR

This channel includes news and new technology innovations connected with hybrid operating rooms, also referred to as hybrid ORs, hybrid cath labs or hybid interventional suites. These rooms combine catheterization lab and OR technologies and requirements from both open surgical and transcatheter procedures. The main focus of many of these rooms are use for transcatheter structural heart procedures, aortic endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and procedures that may require both catheter and surgical therapies.
