A ruptured cerebral aneurysm is the third most common cause of death in industrial countries.
With the Leica FL800, for intra-operative fluorescence-aided videoangiography, surgeons can now determine the patency of vessels.
During surgery, the patient is injected intravenously with ICG (indocyanine green) dye, which is well tolerated and spreads quickly. A near infrared camera then shows the bloodstream in black-and-white directly through the surgical microscope eyepieces and/or on a video monitor.
See blood flow intra-operatively
The Leica FL800 fluorescence module enables the surgeon to observe blood flow through the microscope eyepieces or on the video monitor in real time, without additional measuring apparatus. It is a fast, easy method of checking during surgery whether the aneurysm has been perfectly clipped and whether blood flow is properly flowing through the bypass.
