This module will concentrate on cardiac surgery and image-guided interventions in radiology and cardiology as well as imaging techniques and smart catheters. These subjects support current developments in surgery to carry out increasingly complex operations through smaller and smaller incisions. Minimizing the impact on the patient in this way is of fundamental importance, especially for the growing number of elderly people. Stressful open heart surgery is being replaced by minimally invasive procedures such as heart valve replacement using a catheter, a procedure known as TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve implantation). The module includes a visit to one of Europe’s most advanced hybrid operating rooms in order to witness systems of computer assisted surgery at first hand.
