This video introduces the Hybrid Coronary Revascularization (HCR) procedure as practiced at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC). The procedure typically combines a minimally invasive bypass of the LAD (left anterior descending artery) with PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) of the non-LAD territories. The HCR procedure may be conducted in a single stage in the same setting, or the two procedures may be staged.
