Philips Healthcare has partnered with Galway Clinic to install the world’s first production list system of the Allura Xper FD with FlexMove.  The installation in the operating room delivers a state-of-the-art imaging system with fully integrated OR table, laminar air flow and theatre layouts. 


At the launch, consultant vascular and endovascular surgeon Sherif Sultan said: “The system has afforded us the opportunity to expand the scope of our practice and treat any vessel from the supra-aortic trunk at the patient’s head to the dorsalis pedis in the foot.  The potential for endovascular structural heart repair, visceral artery techniques and innovative aortic repairs is immense.
