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.
