This video demonstrate Indocyanine green (ICG) Cholecystectomy by Dr R K Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. Fluorescent cholangiography using intravenous injection of ICG may become the optimal tools to confirm the biliary tract anatomy during LC because it has potential advantages over radiographic cholangiography in that it does not require irradiation or dissection of triangle of Calot. NIR fluorescence-assisted LC has the potential to become a standard surgical procedure. Early visualization of the cystic duct and additional imaging of the CBD may increase safety in LC and might offer an alternative to the intraoperative cholangiogram in patients with an increased risk of CBD injury. In contrast to the ease and efficiency of CD and CBD detection by fluorescent imaging in uncomplicated cases, gallbladder pathology appears to create a much more challenging and complex situation.
