Use Of Indocyanine Green For Intraoperative Ureteral Identification In Nonurologic Surgery

We report the use of indocyanine green (ICG) for ureteral identification during nonurologic surgery. Indocyanine green is a cyanine-based dye that can be injected intravenously to visualize vascularized structures with near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence. Other reports suggest that intraureteral ICG instillation offers benefits for ureteral identification during urologic and nonurologic minimally invasive surgery.1,2
