Date:12/18/2013

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A $7.5 million gift to the University of Michigan will advance research and discovery toward curing aortic disease, and support creation of a new hybrid operating room at the U-M Frankel Cardiovascular Center.

With their gift, Robert and Ann Aikens, of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., will propel an evolution in heart care. The latest advancements in cardiovascular treatment include hybrid procedures in which catheter-based interventions, simultaneous imaging and open chest surgeries are performed in the same operating room.

The newest hybrid surgical suite, which is double the size of a regular OR, is the third for the U-M and merges the radiological and surgical techniques that make advanced hybrid procedures possible.

"In order to offer this safe and more effective option, as well as attract industry partners, we must invest in facilities that provide flexible and complex operating space," says cardiologist Kim Eagle, M.D., a director of the Cardiovascular Center and the Albion Walter Hewlett Professor of Internal Medicine. "It is an essential component of any state-of-the-art cardiovascular center."

The University of Michigan Health System will match support from the Aikens family for the capital project with preliminary plans for opening in 2015.

Hybrid operating rooms enable the minimally invasive repair of heart valves and treatment of arrhythmias, aortic aneurysms and coronary arteries. Patients, especially the elderly, recover quicker from less invasive procedures.
