Surgery is undergoing an important evolution. Conventional open surgery is rapidly moving toward minimally invasive surgery. At the same time, interventional imaging is moving toward more invasive intervention. A “hybrid” operating room (OR), which attempts to satisfy these blended needs, often comes with benefits as well as compromises.
One benefit is that interventional imaging and open surgery can be accommodated in a single location, possibly as a combined procedure. However, high-risk interventional procedures may be performed in a hybrid OR because open surgery would be immediately available as a backup procedure in that space.
The types of procedures performed and the imaging systems integrated into hybrid ORs will be discussed along with the key elements to consider before implementing hybrid OR technology. Some of the quality initiatives relevant to minimally invasive procedures will also be described.
As a participant, you will be able to:
- Identify what constitutes a hybrid OR
- Discuss different types of hybrid ORs in the marketplace and types of procedures they support.
- Describe key elements of planning, design, procurement, and implementation.
