What is an Artis-Zeego Endovascular Surgical Cath Lab?
The Artis-Zeego Endovascular Surgical Cath Lab (Artis-Zeego) is a cath lab and an operating room combined into one room. It provides the ability to perform both minimally invasive, catheter-based procedures and conventional open surgery simultaneously in the same room. The Artis-Zeego, available at Medanta is the first system in angiography that is equipped with a multi-axis robotic arm that provides unmatched flexibility and helps the patients to be in that position which fits best to procedural needs. This hybrid OT embodies the collaborative ‘Heart Team’ concept of Medanta by allowing cardiac surgeons and interventional cardiologists to work together, simultaneously, in the same room to provide the most technologically advanced care available.
How does it help?
The Artis-Zeego lab at Medanta provides our doctors the ability to perform both minimally invasive, catheter-based procedures and conventional open surgery simultaneously in the same room. This hybrid room allows and instant switch from a percutaneous procedure to a surgery in the event of any emergency. All sorts of endovascular work, from cardiac surgery to cardiothoracic surgery, such as aortic stent grafts, and to vascular surgical procedures, as well as percutaneous valve replacement, insertion of biventricular pacemakers, removal of chronically implanted devices can be easily done in Medanta’s hybrid Artis-Zeego lab.
