Quantitative fluorescence angiography aids novice and experienced surgeons in performing intestinal resection in well-perfused tissue

Abstract Background Anastomotic leakage (AL) after gastrointestinal resection is a devastating complication with huge consequences for the patient. As AL is associated with poor blood supply, tools for objective assessment of perfusion are in high demand. Indocyanine green angiography (ICG-FA) and quantitative analysis of ICG-FA (q-ICG) seem promising. This study aimed to investigate whether ICG-FA…
