Tuesday, March 16, 9:15 AM – 12:45 PM
Interventionalists, cardiac surgeons and general cardiologists will want to explore this multi-modality room, designed to support a variety of integrated surgical and endovascular procedures. This high-tech venue will allow you to get a first-hand look—and feel—of the latest technologies.

Now is the time for interventional cardiologists and hospital executives to gather as much information as possible about hybrid suites because they are the future. Hybrid cath labs allow facilities to have flexibility. They also increase the types of procedures that can be performed. And hybrid labs will be needed once transcatheter valve repair and replacement takes hold in the U.S.

These sessions, occurring each day, all day, are unique in that they present a cardiologist's and surgeon's view on various topics. Lectures for Sunday are:
  • Hybrid Coronary Revascularization (surgeon and cardiologist)
  • Controversies During the Adoption of Robot-Assisted and Hybrid Strategies for Treating CAD (surgeon)
  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (cardiologist)
  • Patient Selection and Approach to Hybrid Revascularization (cardiologist)
  • Hybrid Revascularization: Increasing Volume and Improving Results (surgeon)
  • Patient Selection and Approach to Hybrid Revascularization (cardiologist)
  • Integration of TECAB and Hybrid Coronary Revascularization in a Hybrid Suite: Why? (surgeon), and
  • Hybrid Suites: Opening New Doors to the Future (cardiologist)
