Hybrid Lab

Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital Hybrid Lab - Heart Surgery, NJ

Our Heart Team is Ready for Everything

Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital’s hybrid operating suite (and post-anesthesia care unit) provide our cardiac specialists the facilities to perform the most complex heart procedures. The hybrid suite combines the advanced imaging capabilities of a cardiac catheterization laboratory with a high-tech operating room.

At the heart of the lab is the biplane angiography system, a type of two-phase digital X-ray that constructs a real-time, three-dimensional roadmap of blood vessels and heart structure. The system is important for a number of advanced diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and implantation of devices such as the Watchman (for stroke reduction in patients with atrial fibrillation).

If needed, the hybrid lab can be reconfigured easily for open surgery, avoiding the need to move the patient to an operating room or to a different team of specialists––increasing safety and efficiency.
