Since October 2014 the integrated and hybrid operating room (OR) is used in our institution. We would like to report our first experience with this operating room.
Nowadays, there are four indications for using the integrated and hybrid operating room in our hospital.
Acute mesenteric infarction.
Radiofrequecy ablation (RFA) of liver metastases, which are not sensitive to ultrasound and are localised next to great blood vessels.
Wedge resection of lung metastases, which are not depicted radiologically, especially when they are not located superficially.
Cases that require a CT scan after the laparoscopic operation because of their small size.
There are the special cases presented in which the hybrid and operating room can be used.
The integrated and hybrid operating room facilitates performing the operation, makes it faster, brings better results, reduces complications and increases comfort of the surgeons.
