On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, Jain Institute of Vascular Sciences (JIVAS) on Friday launched a ‘Hybrid Operation Theatre’ here on Friday.
The Institute also announced commencement of a peripheral vascular course. Vascular diseases (of arteries and veins) have increased exponentially in India due to diabetes, increased life expectancy and unabated smoking or use of tobacco. However, there were only 60-70 vascular surgeons in the country, who can perform this procedure.
The new operation theatre can be used to conduct major vascular operations and minimally invasive endovascular procedures.
