Indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence angiography (FA) was introduced to provide the real-time intraoperative evaluation of the vascular supply of anastomosis. However, further studies are required to evaluate its advantages in colorectal surgery and to know in which procedure this technology has more value. The aim of the present study is to assess the usefulness of the ICG-FA in the colorectal anastomosis evaluation and to evaluate where it is most useful depending on type of resection performed in terms of change of section line based on the ICG-FA and anastomotic leakage (AL) rates.

Name: Surgical endoscopy
Some recent studies have suggested that fluorescence angiography with indocyanine green (ICG) might be useful for preventing anastomotic leakage (AL) after laparoscopic colorectal surgery. However, it...
There has been recent interest in indocyanine green (ICG) to assess anastomotic perfusion in colorectal surgery. We describe our experience using ICG when performing laparoscopic segmental colorectal ...
In colorectal cancer surgery, the efficacy of intestinal blood flow evaluation with the indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence method using the VISERA ELITE2 system was investigated.
Indocyanine green (ICG)-enhanced fluorescence has recently been used to assist in identifying perfusion of bowel and a healthy anastomosis. Feasibility of ICG for many colorectal procedures has been s...
We examined the value of indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence angiography in predicting parathyroid vascularization following thyroid and central compartment surgeries.
This is a randomized, controlled, parallel study to determine the difference in post-operative anastomotic leak rate of colorectal anastomosis where colon and rectal tissue perfusion is ev...
This is a randomized, controlled, parallel, multicenter trial to determine the difference in post-operative anastomotic leakages in colorectal surgery, where anastomosis perfusion is evalu...
This is a prospective cohort pilot study. The investigators are planning to develop an original, standardized colorectal anastomosis inspection method, which will systemically inspect the ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of fluorescence imaging on the location of colorectal transection lines based on evaluation of perfusion with indocyanine green, how it's g...
Background: Intestinal resections are commonly performed in the pediatric population. Perfusion of the bowel is one of the most important factors determining the viability of an intestinal...
A tricarbocyanine dye that is used diagnostically in liver function tests and to determine blood volume and cardiac output.
Protein analogs and derivatives of the Aequorea victoria green fluorescent protein that emit light (FLUORESCENCE) when excited with ULTRAVIOLET RAYS. They are used in REPORTER GENES in doing GENETIC TECHNIQUES. Numerous mutants have been made to emit other colors or be sensitive to pH.
Non-invasive method of vascular imaging and determination of internal anatomy without injection of contrast media or radiation exposure. The technique is used especially in CEREBRAL ANGIOGRAPHY as well as for studies of other vascular structures.
A Y-shaped surgical anastomosis of any part of the digestive system which includes the small intestine as the eventual drainage site.
Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
