Fluorescence angiography with indocyanine green (ICG) to evaluate anastomosis in colorectal surgery: where does it have more value?

Summary of "Fluorescence angiography with indocyanine green (ICG) to evaluate anastomosis in colorectal surgery: where does it have more value?"

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.

Efficacy of indocyanine green fluorescence angiography in preventing anastomotic leakage after laparoscopic colorectal cancer surgery.

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...

Does indocyanine green improve the evaluation of perfusion during laparoscopic colorectal surgery with extracorporeal anastomosis?

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 ...

Evaluation of Anastomosis With ICG Fluorescence Method Using VISERA ELITE2 During Laparoscopic Colorectal Cancer Surgery.

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.

Uses of ICG Fluorescence Imaging Technology in Complex Inflammatory Bowel Disease Surgery - A Video Vignette.

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...
