Core Tip Indocyanine green is a sterile, anionic, water-soluble molecule, which was approved for clinical use in 1959 by the Food and Drug Administration. After intravenous injection, indocyanine green rapidly bounds to plasma lipoproteins. When injected outside blood vessels (e.g., into the normal tissue close to tumors), indocyanine green binds to proteins, reaching the nearest lymph node usually within 15 min. The intraoperative usage of indocyanine green has become common in a variety of surgical specialties and transplant surgery. By observing the signal using a fluorescence imaging video system, surgeons can visualize and assess organ perfusion intraoperatively while making adjustments in real-time.
