Increasing Minimal Invasive Surgeries to Boost Adoption of Hybrid Operating Rooms in Europe, Says Frost & Sullivan
Date:8/8/2012

LONDON, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The next five years will see many hospitals in Europe overcoming the high cost and complexity of implementation in hybrid operating rooms (OR) by adopting better planning and budget allocation, thereby encouraging hospitals with larger cardiac and neurosurgery services to implement at least one hybrid OR.

Hybrid OR combines conventional surgical equipment with state-of-the-art endovascular imaging equipment to facilitate a multitude of new surgical events for practically all medical disciplines. Currently, Europe has very few hybrid OR in comparison to mature markets such as North America. This is set to change as hybrid OR facilitate sophisticated surgeries while reducing hospitalization periods.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.patientmonitoring.frost.com), Operating Rooms of the Future: A European Perspective, finds that the crisscrossing of disciplines to cure the complex diseases of this age - coupled with the booming demand for minimal invasive surgeries, which are complex with high technology demands over traditional open surgical approaches - will boost adoption of hybrid OR, also known as the Operating Room of the Future.

The key restraint to the uptake of hybrid OR is cost. The expense involved in setting up a hybrid suite can vary between $3 million to $9 million, including the heavy investment in large devices like MRI or CT. In Europe, installation costs alone start at $4 million for an empty site.

"Hybrid OR is perceived as an expensive alternative to traditional operating rooms, mainly due to the high initial investment," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Somsainathan CK. "Currently, European countries are struggling to overcome the economic crisis and such investments are not seen as attractive or critical areas that demand immediate budgets. Due to lack of funds, hybrid OR is witnessin
