Heart Hospital of Austin's Expansion Increases Patient Capacity by 30 Percent

The new hybrid operating and electrophysiology rooms alone will increase the Heart Hospital of Austin's capacity by more than 1,000 patients annually.

The hospital serves as a primary site for the nationally recognized research efforts of Austin Heart, the cardiology group based at the hospital. As one of the largest private practice clinical research programs in the nation, various types of research are conducted involving new drugs, devices, and new indications for existing therapies. The expansion of the facility and technology further the mission of the research.

To highlight some of the new technologies, two procedures were broadcast today via the new video equipment permanently installed in the rooms. Dr. Roger Gammon, cardiologist with Austin Heart, performed a live vascular procedure and Dr. Stephen Settle, vascular surgeon with Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeons, walked participants through a taped endovascular (minimally invasive) aneurysm repair for an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA).
