Hybrid Operating Suite

Technical team performance in a setting that combines interventional and open surgical capabilities.

Target audience: all members of the healthcare team

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
Thirty percent of patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis are not surgical candidates for open aortic valve replacement, due to advanced age, severe left ventricular dysfunction, or multiple coexisting conditions. For selected patients, transcatheter aortic valve replacement reduces two-year mortality, hospitalizations, and symptoms, while improving transvalvular hemodynamics. Initial TAVR placement is associated with major vascular complications from the access site and late paravalvular aortic regurgitation. Early experience is a significant predictor of late mortality.


Radial Approach for Cardiac Catheterization (RACC)

Currently, less than 5% of cardiac catheterizations in the US employ the radial approach, relying instead on traditional cannulation of the femoral artery. Recent studies have demonstrated that the radial approach for cardiac catheterization and percutaneous interventions can be performed safely and with success rates comparable to the femoral approach, yet with improved outcomes in rates of bleeding rates, complications, and overall morbidity and mortality. The radial approach clearly improves patient comfort, permits immediate patient ambulation after intervention, and enables same-day interventional discharges.


Radiation Safety

Radiological imaging equipment and procedures are essential to the performance of interventional and surgical procedures, yet there remains a gap in the education and training of health professionals for the safe, effective use of radiological imaging in the intervention suite and operating room. Balance must be achieved in obtaining adequate images for procedural performance while minimizing radiation exposure to the patient and health professional team.
