Impact of incisionless fluorescent cholangiography

Fluorescent insicionless cholangiography during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Is this a New Gold Standard?

This presentation is aimed to reinforce the impact of this novel technology that might transform Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy into one of the safest surgical procedures. Despite the major advances in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy over the past two decades, patients undergoing the procedure may still face life-threatening complications due to misidentification of the bile duct anatomy.

With the routine use of near infrared (NIR) guided surgery, surgeons have the possibility to increase the range of visualization and understanding of the extrahepatic bile ducts and avoid injuries due to misidentification. This lecture will provide a clear understanding of the basic principles of this novel and simple technique. In addition, there will be an opportunity to learn surgical tips and review the most important data from the literature.

New frontiers in fluorescent guided endocrine surgery

Endocrine procedures like thyroidectomies and adrenalectomies are commonly performed by general and endocrine surgeons around the world. Unfortunately during the surgeries patients might be at risk of suffering complications like hypocalcemia after thyroidectomies due to parathyroid glands injuries, or bleeding during a laparoscopic adrenalectomies to difficulties during adrenal vessels identification. An accurate visualization of the glands like parathyroid glands, tumors or adrenal glands are key steps in order to perform a safe procedure. In the last years the use of fluorescence allowed surgeons to better understand the anatomy and visualize the localization and vascularization of the glands avoiding complications. The audience will be able to understand the basic concepts of the method and to learn technical tips of the technology. A literature review of clinical outcomes in endocrine fluorescence guided surgery will be performed.
