Intraoperative near infrared fluorescence guided identification of the ureters using low dose methylene blue: a first in human experience.


PURPOSE Near infrared fluorescence imaging is a promising technique that offers real-time visual information during surgery. In this study we report the first clinical results to our knowledge of ureteral imaging using near infrared fluorescence after a simple peripheral infusion of methylene blue. Furthermore, we assessed the optimal timing and dose of… (More)
