Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Complex neurovascular disease often requires the use of both open and endovascular techniques to optimize treatment strategies. The increased technology along with endovascular capabilities has expanded the armamentarium available for neurovascular surgeons. Having both capabilities assimilated in one operating theatre will allow improved ability to treat complex disease more efficiently and lead to improved patient outcomes. The versatility of the room can also be applied to spine and skull base treatments. We review the background, patient selection, as well as room design and logistical challenges in establishing a hybrid operating room.
