Breast Reduction Guidance
- 14 Downloads
A successful breast reduction requires ample postoperative blood supply to the nipple and remaining tissue. With numerous breast pedicles to choose from, each patient must be evaluated individually to determine the best operative plan. Sometimes these surgical decisions are not clear and vascular compromise in the perioperative period can often be difficult to assess. To that end, indocyanine green (ICG) can be utilized in planning, execution, and postoperative assessments to help guide clinical decision-making and ensure the safety, efficacy, and outcomes of this surgery.
