A Hybrid Operating Room for Better Heart Procedure Outcomes
When you need a heart procedure, you want the assurance of the latest technology and techniques, guided by the best hands. Here in Hinsdale, you don’t have to go far to find it: UChicago Medicine AdventHealth Hinsdale is now home to a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room (OR).
Our new hybrid OR combines a standard OR's equipment, lighting and sterilization measures with advanced imaging technology like computed tomography (CT) scanners and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines. These imaging capabilities raise the bar for heart valve repair and the surgical treatment of rhythm disturbances and aortic aneurysms.
The addition of imaging technology into the OR also enables our interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists and cardiac surgeons to perform procedures such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), complex ablations and vascular treatments like endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR).
Compared to traditional open-heart surgery, TAVR is a less invasive way to replace a diseased aortic valve. Most patients experience shorter procedures, smaller incisions, less discomfort, quicker recovery time and often return home the next day.

What to Know About Cardiac Arrest
The more you know about critical heart events, the more empowered you can be to take care of your heart — and better prepared if the unexpected happens.
Question: What is cardiac arrest?Answer:Cardiac arrest is the sudden, unexpected loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness.
Question: What causes cardiac arrest?Answer:Cardiac arrest is typically caused when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions. This causes the heart to stop beating properly. A heart attack, on the other hand, is caused by a blockage that stops blood flow to the heart.
Question: How is cardiac arrest treated?Answer:Cardiac arrest can be reversed if CPR is performed immediately and a defibrillator is used to shock the heart back into normal rhythm.
Your doctor will discuss if you are at a higher risk of experiencing cardiac arrest because of a pre-existing heart condition. Together, you can make a plan that will help you stay safe and inform your loved ones what to do in an emergency.
