BWH’s renovated Cardiac Catheterization Lab (pictured above) opened on Oct. 26 after about five months of construction and roughly two years of planning. The lab features updated technology and equipment, more physical space and the ability to integrate newer, more compatible modalities in patient care. Cath Lab volume has grown significantly in the past few years, specifically in the structural heart procedure arena, which includes transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The new lab replaces the prior Cardiac Cath Lab, which opened 15 years ago. Below: Members of the Cardiovascular Division/Interventional Cardiology gather in the new space on the morning it opens.
