Fluorometric quantification of low-dose fluorescein delivery to predict amputation site healing.


This retrospective study evaluated quantification of skin fluorescein delivery by fiberoptic fluorometry as a means of predicting the healing potential of an amputation site. Fluorometry uses a dual-channel fiberoptic light guide--one channel transmits blue light to excite the fluorescein in the skin under study, and the other transmits emitted fluorescence… (More)
