The Diagnostic and Intraoperative Use of NIR ICG in Perforator Flap Procedures: An Animal Study (2009)

January 22nd, 2014 (No Comments)

Image-Guided Perforator Flap Design Using Invisible Near-Infrared Light and Validation with X-Ray Angiography¬† In this study, 22 pigs were injected with a bolus of indocyanine green (ICG) through a central venous line and observed with a near infrared (NIR)¬†camera to identify dominant perforator flaps from the deep superior epigastric artery (DSEA). After the flap was […]

Plastic Surgical Applications of ICG

January 21st, 2014 (No Comments)

Laser-induced fluorescence of indocyanine green: plastic surgical applications This article explores the usefulness of ICG fluorescence in the evaluation of pedicle flaps, monitoring of free tissue transfer and replants, as well as the objective determination of burn depth. The authors found that in addition to normal assessment methods (clinical observation), ICG fluorescence provides invaluable information […]

Using ICG to Research how Ointments and Dressings can Effect Healing in Burn Wounds

January 21st, 2014 (No Comments)

The influence of dressings and ointments on the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of burn wounds by ICG video-angiography: an experimental setup This was a study involving burn victims that utilized ICG fluorescence to determine whether or not certain dressings and ointments were preventing angiogenesis. Reserachers found that indeed certain dressings and ointments caused a significant […]

ICG Fluorescence and the Prediction of Flap Necrosis

January 21st, 2014 (No Comments)

Prediction of flap necrosis with laser induced indocyanine green fluorescence in a rat model. In this study, German researchers from Rechts der Isar Hospital in Munich used a rat model and ICG fluorescence to determine what level of perfusion gave good indication of future flap necrosis. In areas that would become necrotic they found that […]
