– reduces costs, improves health outcomes
– Surgery Paper, Dec 2021
This article aimed to present our experience in the preoperative design of the expanded forehead flap for nasal reconstruction and to compare the clinical practice of hand-held Doppler and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) in vascular mapping for nasal reconstruction with the expanded forehead flap.
Ileal long-segment ischemia after the unintended ligation of variant ileal branch during laparoscopic right hemicolectomy
The variant terminal trunk of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) could be confused with the ileocolic artery (ICA) as it runs on the right side of the superior mesenteric vein.
With vocal cord palsy, hypoparathyroidism is one of the two major complications after thyroid surgery. Traditional approaches to preserving the parathyroid glands during thyroid surgery include identifying the glands precisely and preserving their vasculature with the naked eye, which mainly depend on the experience and skill of the surgeon
Intraoperative assessment of parathyroid perfusion using indocyanine green angiography in robotic thyroidectomy
In recent da Vinci robot systems (Intuitive Surgical), near-infrared fluorescence imaging (Firefly technology) has been used. With this technique, it is possible for surgeons to see important structures well beyond the limits of their eyes
Diagnosis, Mechanisms, and Differentiation of Inflammatory Diseases of the Outer Retina: Photoreceptoritis versus Choriocapillaritis; A Multimodal Imaging Perspective
Inflammatory diseases that affect the outer retina do so by different mechanisms. Some of them result from the direct, primary involvement of the outer retina (primary photoreceptoritis) such as acute zonal outer occult retinopathy (AZOOR). Others affect the photoreceptors secondarily due to the inflammatory involvement of the choriocapillaris. This results in choriocapillaris non-perfusion that damages the photoreceptors due to the ensuing ischaemia, a mechanism characterising primary inflammatory choriocapillaropathies (PICCPs) such as multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS), idiopathic multifocal choroiditis (MFC), and others.
CHOROIDAL AMYLOID DEPOSITION: A Multicenter Study of Amyloid Lesions Identified in Late Indocyanine Green Angiography
To characterize choroidal amyloid angiopathy (CAA) using late-phase indocyanine green angiography (ICGA). This was a multicenter retrospective observational case series on patients with transthyretin (ATTR) and AL amyloidosis who underwent ICGA. The timing of hyperfluorescence and longitudinal changes were analyzed. T
Fluorescent Indocyanine Green versus Technetium-99m and Blue Dye for Bilateral SENTinel Lymph Node Detection in Stage I-IIA Cervical Cancer (FluoreSENT): protocol for a non-inferiority study
Nowadays, two predominant methods for detecting sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) in cervical cancer are in use. The most conventional method is a combination of a radiotracer, technetium-99m (99mTc) and blue dye. More recently, another method for SLN mapping using indocyanine green (ICG) is becoming widely accepted. ICG is a fluorescent dye, visualised intraoperatively with near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging, providing real-time visual navigation.
Lighting the Way with Fluorescent Cholangiography in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: Reviewing 7 Years of Experience.
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) with fluorescent cholangiography using indocyanine green dye (FC) identifies extrahepatic biliary structures, potentially augmenting the critical view of safety. We aim to describe trends for the largest single-centre cohort of patients undergoing FC in LC. A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database identified patients undergoing LC with FC at a single academic institution.

Utility of Indocyanine Green Angiography for Preventing Pre-expanded Extended Lower Trapezius Myocutaneous Flap Necrosis: How to Make the Correct Decision for Hypoperfused Areas
Designing a skin flap that perfectly covers the anatomical and dynamic territories is challenging. Tissues capturing territories beyond may be insufficiently perfused, and these hypoperfused areas can lead to partial flap necrosis. Indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) is an effective tool for identifying hypoperfused areas. This retrospective study proposes a standardized strategy for managing the hypoperfused area identified by ICGA in pre-expanded extended lower trapezius myocutaneous (e-LTMC) flaps
Indocyanine Green Angiography as the Principal Design and Perfusion Assessment Tool for the Supraclavicular Artery Island Flap in Head and Neck Reconstruction
A consecutive case series of supraclavicular artery island flaps was designed using indocyanine green angiography (IcG-A) in head and neck reconstruction to demonstrate its utilization in supraclavicular artery island flap (SCAIF) head and neck reconstruction. IcG-A was used consecutively between April 2014 and July 2015 to evaluate its use in flap design, inset, and intraoperative decision-making in five patients undergoing head and neck reconstruction.
12 September, 2022; Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina: The Universidad de Buenos Aires (UB) Faculty of Medicine, together with the Hospital de Clinicas “Jose de San Martin” are pleased to announce the launch of a new International Training Center for surgeons in Argentina, dedicated to Fluorescence Guided Surgery.
Trimming of Facial Artery Myomucosal Flap (FAMM) using Indocyanine Green Fluorescence Video-Angiography: Operative Nuances
Facial artery myomucosal flap (FAMM) is an intraoral flap pedicled on facial artery used for reconstruction of oral/oropharyngeal defects. Careful assessment of perfusion is essential to avoid flap necrosis, and several options are used for this purpose. Among these, indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence video-angiography (ICG-VA) represents an innovative tool whose adoption in flap surgery is still at its early days.
Virtual navigation bronchoscopy-guided intraoperative indocyanine green localization in simultaneous surgery for multiple pulmonary nodules
Accurate localization of pulmonary nodules is the main difficulty experienced in wedge resection. Commonly used localization methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. However, clinical work has demonstrated that intraoperative indocyanine green localization under electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy/virtual navigation bronchoscopy (VNB) is more advantageous than conventional methods for patients with multiple pulmonary nodules undergoing simultaneous surgery, especially for those undergoing bilateral lung surgery.
Patterns of ischaemia and reperfusion in nipple-sparing mastectomy reconstruction with indocyanine green angiography
Intraoperative assessment of mastectomy flaps and nipple-areola complex (NAC) with indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) for decision-making in delayed breast reconstruction after nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) remains to be fully elucidated. We evaluated patterns of ischaemia and reperfusion in NSM with delayed breast reconstruction, and their outcomes.
Laparoscopic surgery has been applied for Hirschsprung’s disease (HD). We herein report our approach to mesenteric processing for laparoscopic-assisted transanal endorectal pull-through (L-TERPT). Following mucosectomy and entering
