Gift to University of Michigan supports creation of a new hybrid operating room
Date:12/18/2013

onal cardiologists, surgeons, radiologists and echocardiologists are national leaders in performing a transcatheter technique that opens the door to aortic valve replacement for patients who cannot tolerate open heart surgery.  

"The newest hybrid OR will serve as an anchoring element in our pursuit of the most innovative cardiovascular techniques," says interventional cardiologist Stanley J. Chetcuti, M.D., director of the U-M's cardiac catheterization labs and the Eric J. Topol Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine. "We are pursuing these innovations to bring cures closer to patients in a culture of collaboration and caring."

"Technology is changing how we think about and treat health problems," says cardiac surgeon G. Michael Deeb, M.D., director of U-M's Multidisciplinary Aortic Clinic and the Herbert Sloan Collegiate Professor of Surgery at the U-M Medical School.

"For example if we have a patient with a large aneurysm and cardiovascular disease, we would like to treat those problems simultaneously in order to decrease time on the heart-lung machine. In a hybrid operating room we can perform angioplasty and stent the lesion via transcatheter techniques and then proceed with the open surgery."

In addition to being a destination for complex aortic care, the U-M has scientists who are coordinating research to discover more answers and treatment breakthroughs for aortic disease.

In 1996, the U-M launched the International Registry for Acute Aortic Dissection, and scientists are exploring a radical approach to understanding the genetic drivers that make some
