Image-Guided Liver Mapping Using Fluorescence Navigation System with Indocyanine Green for Anatomical Hepatic Resection

Abstract

In malignant hepatic neoplasm, anatomic resection could improve survival and limit complications from hepatectomy. Our purpose was to develop an intraoperative method for identifying segment and subsegment of the liver with high-sensitivity near-infrared fluorescence imaging. The subjects were 35 patients with hepatic malignant liver disease who received… (More)
