The Vascular Center at Mercy Medical Center installed Toshiba America Medical Systems’ Infinix VC-i and customized CAT-880B catheterization table for its new OR.

The Baltimore based hospital can now employ interventional techniques and perform procedures for treating diseased blood vessels, including balloon angioplasty, stent and aneurysm repair, bypass surgery of the legs and removal of varicose veins without major incisions, offered Tustin, Calif.-based Toshiba.

The Infinix VC-i single plane features a dual-track, ceiling-mounted C-arm providing access to the patient as well as lateral C-arm travel at the head-end of the table for upper extremity coverage. Also hanging from the ceiling are two booms holding the anesthesiologist’s equipment and three operating room lights, one of which houses a camera for recording live interventional cases for educational opportunities.
