Mashburn Cardiac Pavilion

Hamilton's Mashburn Cardiac Pavilion's two cardiac catheterization labs feature fully digital Artis Zee® angiography systems with flat-panel detectors that enable physicians to view high resolution images allowing them to see interventional devices such as guidewires, catheters, and coronary stents in precise detail and from almost any angle.  Hamilton's hybrid suite features the first multi-axis system with robotic technology, the Siemens Artis Zeego angiography system.  It is used for cardiac and non-cardiac procedures, including endovascular procedures.

Pictured is one of HMC’s two dedicated catheterization labs which feature fully digital Artis Zee® angiography systems with flat-panel detectors that enable physicians to view high-resolution images of patients’ blood vessels on full-color 56-inch screens. The flat detectors also allow physicians to see interventional devices such as guidewires, catheters and coronary stents in precise detail and from almost any angle. The Artis Zee® is specially designed to provide the lowest possible radiation dose and its ergonomic design makes the procedure faster and less stressful for patients.

HMC’s cardiovascular program features a team of specially trained cardiovascular nurses, technicians, board certified cardiologists and interventional cardiologists.

Here is a picture of Hamilton’s Cardiovascular Hybrid Suite houses the Artis Zeego, the first multi-axis system with robotic technology. The suite is used for cardiac and non-cardiac procedures, including endovascular procedures. It offers unmatched positioning flexibility to enable the most advanced clinical procedures and techniques. It enables physicians to see fine blood vessels and interventional devices in precise detail from almost any angle – all this while providing faster, more accurate diagnoses and improved outcomes for patients, and the lowest possible radiation exposure.

The cardiovascular hybrid suite can be used for all types of vascular procedures including ones to gain vascular access for dialysis, angioplasty and stenting of vessels in the arms, legs and neck, and abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Cardiac procedures that can be performed in the hybrid suite include heart catheterization with cardiac stenting, cardiac rhythm implants – such as a pacemaker or internal cardiac defibrillator – and cardiac ablations to correct abnormal heart rhythms.
