Talk for Manchester Cardiovascular Society


Our second event this year sees a slight deviation in the direction of vascular surgery and we are delighted that the renowned Mr David Murray (Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Manchester Royal Infirmary) has agreed to speak for us on 'Treating Aortic Aneurysms: The Good, Bad, and Ugly'.

Manchester Royal Infirmarys' new heart surgery suite completed


A £6m hospital theatre suite for pioneering cardiovascular surgery in Manchester has been completed.
The two new theatres at Manchester Royal Infirmary include better imaging technology and a robotic C-arm which can scan a patient during surgery.
Consultant vascular surgeon David Murray said the hospital would be able to carry out techniques and treatments that "are not currently possible".
The suite will be open to patients across the region.

Work begins on £6million state-of-the-art surgical facility

Work has begun on a new £6 million state-of-the-art hybrid endovascular theatre suite set to transform the treatment of patients undergoing minimally invasive cardiovascular procedures at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
This will be the first hospital in the UK to have two adjacent fully hybrid theatres utilising a robotic imaging system with fully flexible theatre table. Only a few such facilities exist world-wide.
Situated in Manchester Royal Infirmary, the two theatres will provide a dedicated facility with state-of-the-art technology. This includes high definition imaging with a robotic arm as well as facilities for traditional surgery all in one place.  The hybrid suite will provide better facilities where existing techniques can be performed more efficiently and safely. It will also enable new innovative techniques and treatments to be carried out that are not currently possible.
Minimally invasive procedures are fast becoming the preferred technique for many patients and doctors. Our Trust has many acknowledged leaders in this field. Procedures are performed through tiny openings rather than one large cut, avoiding the need for open surgery. This means patients coming to Manchester Royal Infirmary for their treatment will have a lower chance of infection, a quicker recovery time and less risk of blood loss, pain and scarring.
Mr David Murray, Consultant Vascular Surgeon at Manchester Royal Infirmary said: "This facility will be a fantastic resource for the people of Manchester and the North West. It will allow us to perform complex procedures in a safer environment and will bring a great many benefits to our patients. Minimally invasive treatments will allow patients to have safer surgery and recover much faster. This really is the cutting edge of technology and we are very excited about the future"
The new hybrid suite will be used primarily for vascular and cardiac surgery but will also be used for other specialties such as urology and major trauma.
The new theatres are due for completion April 2014.
