Toshiba America Medical Systems' Versatile Hybrid Lab Enhances Cardiac Care at St. Bernardine Medical Center


1/15/2013 10:03:20 AM

TUSTIN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In October, St. Bernardine Medical Center in San Bernardino, Calif., opened the first hybrid cath lab in Southern California’s Inland Empire equipped with Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.’s Infinix™ VC-i cardiovascular X-ray system and hybrid table. The flexibility of the Infinix-i system combined with the tilting and cradling features of the table produce an ideal hybrid setting for both surgical and interventional procedures. “Heart disease is the number one killer in our community and the new Toshiba hybrid lab provides our patients with the most advanced cardiovascular care available,” said Ed Langdon, senior executive director, Inland Empire Heart & Vascular Institute (IEH&VI). St. Bernardine’s IEH&VI is the region’s largest heart care provider and has received national recognition for the quality of care delivered to its patients. According to Langdon, St. Bernardine’s IEH&VI utilizes the Infinix-i system and hybrid table for various applications such as AAA stents, transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR) and vascular bypasses. Infinix-i also enables the hospital to conduct approximately 30 percent of its interventions using the radial approach, a safer and more efficient access point.
