The Application of Indocyanine Green (ICG) Staining Technique During Robotic-Assisted Right Hepatectomy: with Video
- 33 Downloads
The application of indocyanine green (icg) properties in the field of HPB surgery is gaining momentum. The adoption of the staining technique for the visualization of hepatic liver parenchyma is still preliminary.
We performed a 1:1 case- matched comparison among 20 patients who underwent robotic liver resection with or without the application of icg fluorescence.
The icg enabled the reduction of postoperative liver abscess and bile leakage rate. The staining technique was not time-consuming and provided excellent enhancement of liver transection line.
The routine use of icg-fluorescence could potentially reduce the postoperative complications during robotic liver surgery.
