Creating hybrid operating rooms (OR) is a new stage of the development of present-day cardiovascular surgery, with the need for these operating suites having evolved resulting from rapid implementation of novel techniques of treating cardiovascular diseases, combining elements of «open» and endovascular surgery. Despite widespread interest in this problem, there are virtually no systematized works properly describing the specificity of designing and organization of the hybrid OR’s work.

The present work was aimed at compiling the literature data and sharing own experience gained in organization of the hybrid OR, designation of indispensable technical and organizational requirements for performing hybrid interventions, studying the basic problems related to designing and building such operating rooms, as well as organization and management of the personnel.

KEY WORDS: hybrid operating room, hybrid interventions.
