First Procedure Performed in Hybrid Congenital Cardiac OR

November 14, 2007 - The Heart Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital performed the first procedure in the first hybrid congenital cardiac operating suite in the U.S., a facility designed specifically around the cardiac surgeon, offering new advanced access and imaging in an operating room environment. Doctors performed treated hypoplastic left heart syndrome in the hybrid congenital cardiac operating suite. The new suite deviates from traditional cardiac care delivery by allowing surgical and interventional catheterization procedures to be performed by a single interdisciplinary team in one setting. This approach is intended to enhance patient outcomes through shorter and safer procedures that require less recovery time and rehabilitation. The hybrid congenital cardiac operating suite features: - more than 900 square feet of working space to accommodate the team involved in a hybrid case (surgeons, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists,echocardiographers, cardiac anesthesiologists, advanced level nurse practitioners, physicians’ assistants, cath/O.R. nurses, technicians and perfusionists); - a surgical theater with a fixed base surgical table, modutec booms and surgical lighting from Maquet Surgical Workplaces, allowing for more precise and consistent imaging, as well as greater flexibility without taking up critical floor space; - flat panel detectors (FPD) from Toshiba; - technical capabilities that allow staff members the ability to transmit information anywhere in the suite, at remote sites within the hospital or even to countries around the world, enabling Nationwide Children’s Heart Center faculty to consult with physicians in distant countries and to serve as a teaching hospital; - nine interconnected, flat panel, high-resolution display screens for superior visualization and better information exchange among the team members; and - a non-sterile control/observation room to serve as an educational and training resource for students, staff and faculty. The hybrid congenital cardiac operating suite can accommodate reportedly any cardiac surgical case, catheterization or collaborative hybrid procedure. Cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists working together in this suite would purportedly reduce the amount of time required to correct a heart problem.
