A man in his 70s underwent an endovascular aneurysm repair(EVAR)for abdominal aortic aneurysm. Blood test revealed an anemia and an increased tumor marker. Enhanced computed tomography revealed the wall thickening in the sigmoid colon and the Type Ⅱ endoleak after EVAR. Colonoscopy showed the wall thickening in the sigmoid colon, and biopsy indicated a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma. We performed open sigmoid colectomy with D3 lymph node dissection and ileostomy.
We performed intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence method for evaluating the blood flow in the colon before the high ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery and the creation of the anastomosis, and perfusion of the colon was visualized. He was discharged postoperative day 14, and was performed closure of ileostomy 5 months later. Intraoperative ICG fluorescence method was safety and useful for evaluating the blood flow in the colon.
