Dur­dans Hospi­tal un­veils SA’S most ad­vanced bi­plane catheter­i­sa­tion lab­o­ra­tory

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - HEALTHCARE -

The new bi­plane catheter­i­sa­tion lab­o­ra­tory at Dur­dans Hospi­tal pos­sesses the most ad­vanced bi­plane with an­gio­graphic ca­pa­bil­i­ties avail­able in South Asia, to sup­port in­ter­ven­tion­ists in mak­ing faster and bet­ter-in­formed de­ci­sions for head-to-toe pro­ce­dures through greater ac­cu­racy, per­for­mance and safety.

Catheter­i­sa­tion lab­o­ra­tory is a pro­ce­dure lab­o­ra­tory where in­ter­ven­tions are per­formed, aided by imag­ing and im­age-guided di­ag­nos­tic tools.

The cut­ting-edge bi­plane catheter­i­sa­tion lab­o­ra­tory of­fers high ac­cu­racy through user­friendly in­ter­ven­tional ap­pli­ca­tions that lead to a high suc­cess rate for clin­i­cians. In­ter­ven­tions are per­formed faster with less prepa­ra­tion and lab time, with­out com­pro­mise to pa­tient safety due to stan­dard­ised pro­to­cols. In­ter­ven­tion­ists can also op­er­ate con­trols ta­ble-side with­out hav­ing to en­ter the con­trol room or re-en­ter the exam room thus re­mov­ing the need for steril­ity breaks.

New in­ter­ven­tional tools built into the bi­plane such as Vasoct and Aneurysm­flow are a first in South Asia. Vasoct will en­able in­ter­ven­tion­ists to see de­tailed images of soft tis­sues and blood ves­sels. Aneurysm­flow can en­hance de­ci­sion-mak­ing through su­pe­rior vi­su­al­i­sa­tion and quan­tifi­ca­tion of in­for­ma­tion.

For ex­am­ple, live imag­ing of­fers high safety for brain surgery that de­mands su­pe­rior di­ag­no­sis and greater use of min­i­mally in­va­sive tech­niques, as brain ves­sels are highly com­plex. In car­diac pro­ce­dures live imag­ing and nav­i­ga­tion plat­forms can fa­cil­i­tate more ac­cu­rate nav­i­ga­tion in­side ves­sels and bet­ter guide the pre­cise de­vice place­ment pro­ce­dures. These plat­forms can also ben­e­fit so­phis­ti­cated catheter and ab­la­tion tech­niques for car­diac pro­ce­dures that re­quire ad­vanced imag­ing. In stent pro­ce­dures the plat­form can aid the right sized stent to be placed in the right lo­ca­tion.

Pow­er­ful per­for­mance of the most ad­vanced X-ray tube fa­cil­i­tates en­hanced de­tec­tion. The use of real-time in­for­ma­tion sourced from imag­ing sys­tems, in­ter­ven­tional de­vices and nav­i­ga­tional tools en­ables quicker de­ci­sions to be made for all kinds of head-to-toe pro­ce­dures, pre­serv­ing qual­ity of life.

Fur­ther­more, mul­ti­ple pro­ce­dures are pos­si­ble. For ex­am­ple, a heart catheter­i­sa­tion pro­ce­dure as well as vas­cu­lar in­ter­ven­tions per­formed in the same op­er­at­ing room makes it safer for pa­tient as they need not be moved to a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion for a dif­fer­ent pro­ce­dure.

An­other as­pect of pa­tient care is ra­di­a­tion con­trol and man­age­ment. This can be achieved with high vis­i­ble images at low x-ray dose through Clar­i­tyiq tech­nol­ogy. The Im­age Guided Ther­apy Plat­form of­fers highly vis­i­ble images that can re­veal minute de­tails at low X-ray dose. This kind of vis­i­bil­ity helps in­ter­ven­tion­ists lo­cate the pri­mary site and make ac­cu­rate and life­sav­ing de­ci­sions.

The most cut­ting-edge bi­plane catheter­i­sa­tion lab­o­ra­tory for per­form­ing headto-toe pro­ce­dures in­clud­ing ad­vanced neuro, pe­riph­eral vas­cu­lar and car­diac in­ter­ven­tions Philips Azu­rion bi­plane is now avail­able at Dur­dans Hospi­tal.
