  • Quantification of Near-Infrared Fluorescence Imaging with Indocyanine Green in Free Flap Breast Reconstruction

    14 days ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    One of the complications of free flap breast reconstruction is the occurrence of skin - and fat necrosis. Intra-operative use of near-infrared fluorescence imaging with Indocyanine Green has the potential to predict these complications. In this study, quantification of the fluorescence intensity measured in free flap breast reconstruction was performed to gain insight in the perfusion patterns observed with ICG NIR fluorescence imaging.
