“[…] Microscope-based ICG videoangiography represents a new technology for intra-operative imaging of vascular flow. Distinct advantages of this technique are its integration into the surgical microscope and its ability to image perforating arteries with submillimeter diameters. Its simplicity, speed, and high level of accuracy for detecting incompletely clipped aneurysms and inadvertently occluded vessels support its use during aneurysm surgery.”
Juha Hernesniemi, M.D., Ph.D.,
Professor and Chairman, Department of Neurosurgery, Helsinki University Central Hospital, Helsinki, Finland 2):
“[…] The use of intraoperative indocyanine green angiography […] is such a simple method, and for us it would appear to be one of the greatest developments in open microsurgery of cerebral aneurysms in the last few years!”
